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
At Outdoor Sports Center, our ski workshop has been the top
facility for ski maintenance and repair in the region for several
decades. We have top of the line equipment you won't find anywhere
else, like our brand new Wintersteiger tuning machine, as well as
the most experienced technicians in the area. On top of all that,
we offer a truly unprecedented level of service that sets us apart
and is one of the many reasons people have been coming to us for

Enjoy more of winter by learning to ski or snowboard. Our daily
rental packages make it easy to get fit and out the door, on the

Try out night skiing after work at a local mountain that's closer
and more convenient or a weekend away with our flex rates (below).
Daily packages are available throughout the entire ski season,
September 1st until April. Fall in love with winter and all it has
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!
At Outdoor Sports Center, we offer professional car rack
installation, free of charge, on every rack system that we sell.
Other shops will charge you for this service, but no one around has
the decades of experience installing car racks that we have. We

installation directly from the people that engineered the
