Our Story:

Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their family's  passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.

Our commitment remains to promote a friendly and knowledgeable community, to provide only the best gear and service, and to always promote awareness of outdoor resources through their use as a playground.

Ski Demo Days


Last week we had the amazing opportunity to hit the slopes on some of the best powder days of the season! Driving up in the crazy storm only heightened our excitement about our favorite event of the year, Demo Days at Mount Snow and Stratton Mountain! During Demo Days, we had the opportunity to test out tons of new skis and snowboards for the 2015-2016 season. Dozens of manufacturers had booths set up at the base of the mountain, and we were able to ski or ride with a representative from the company who's equipment we were using. We returned at the end of the week exhausted, elated, and filled with stories... and we can't wait to share our experiences with you! Here is an overview of the equipment that we highly recommend getting your hands on next winter!
