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

We've put together a few of the most important rules to follow to
make sure your little cyclists continue to stay safe and have a
