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. 

Earth Day 2016

04/19/2016


This Friday, 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.
