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.

The Bicycle Commute

05/07/2017


Our state is known for having beautiful back roads, as well as paved trails in the woods and coastal views. Instead of sitting on a slow-moving highway, you could take advantage of these opportunities to take a beautiful bike ride to the office! This year, Bike to Work Day is May 19th, but the entire week of May 15th-19th is Bike to Work Week. Biking to work helps the planet by saving fuel, and the health benefits are endless, giving you increased energy and allowing you to get your workout in while you commute. Your first ride to work might seem a little daunting, but biking to work is easier than you think. We have compiled a list of common questions, with feedback from members of our staff who regularly commute via bike!

Earth Day 2017

04/18/2017


This Saturday, April 22nd, is Earth Day, a holiday centered around respecting our planet and enjoying the outdoors! While we try to uphold these values all throughout the year, Earth Day is a great time to focus extra energy on caring for and appreciating the natural world in as many ways as we can. We recommend taking time to enjoy nearby parks and trails, such as the Norwalk River Valley Trail, which is constantly growing and incorporating new miles of trail! We know you care about the outdoors just as much as we do, so we're offering up some suggestions of how to spend time outside and do good things for our planet this week.
