The Mountain Shop offers the best camping, climbing, hiking, and skiing equipment available, and makes it easy for customers to enjoy their time in the outdoors. We offer full rental packages, high-end demos, quality equipment repair, and the very best knowledge for custom fitting you to the right equipment, the first time. Just like our founders, the knowledge and product selection at the Mountain Shop is cultivated through our own outdoor experiences. We are proud to have served the Northwest for over 77 years.
About to celebrate our 80th birthday. It’s one thing to say it, but to actually understand the richness of The Mountain Shop’s history you need to really dive into what has been accomplished in the industry along the way.
The Mountain Shop was founded in 1937 in Portland, Oregon, focusing on the specialized needs of local skiers and climbers. The store quickly grew to include skis, ski rentals, specialty repairs, crampons, ice axes, and some of the very first metal edge skis ever sold in the world.
Today, the Mountain Shop focuses on those same activities, services, and forward-thinking principles on which it was founded. All employees must be avid climbers, skiers, snowboarders, backpackers, and lovers of every outdoor variation the Northwest has to offer. Each department practices continuous collaboration with local clubs, groups, and non-profit organizations with the hopes of passing on passion for outdoor recreation.
For the next installment of our Stories Beyond Basecamp Speaker Series, we are excited to present ski-mountaineer and Mountain Shop Ambassador Ben McKinley. Ben will be sharing a story, photos and tips from his latest adventure circumnavigating Mount Hood with a team of other local mountain athletes.
Come on down to Base Camp Brewing Company on May 30th, have a beer, and learn about ski mountaineering on Wy’East!
