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.

Winter Warmth

01/01/2020


Everyone has a different approach to winter. Some of us live for snow and like to spend all day at the mountain, while others are more interested in staying warm inside and waiting for summer to return. No matter how you do winter, everyone can agree that there's nothing better than curling up by the fire at the end of a long day and getting comfortable and warm with family and friends. While we may be Fairfield County's top pick for adventure gear, we are also experts in comfort. In addition to all the equipment you need to fuel your adrenaline out on the mountain, we also have your apres-ski gear to hunker down and relax at the end of a chilly winter day... or for the entire day!
