Backwoods Mountain Sports is an outdoor shop run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. It may sound cliché, but we are all in this to support our outdoor habits, and encourage others to do the same.
To that end, we believe the best way to enjoy the mountains is with the best gear. Good equipment will make your trip more satisfying because you aren’t cold, wet or hungry. The right gear also allows you to camp and travel with minimal impact on the land, allowing more people to enjoy the wonderful spots we have in the mountains of Central Idaho.
Having a great trip goes beyond gear, however – no amount of equipment will guarantee a great journey if you don’t know where to go! Everyone at Backwoods loves to get out and play, and we’re happy to share (most) of our favorite spots with you. The more people who get out and enjoy our part of Idaho, the better chance we have of keeping it the way it is for generations to come. So come on in, ask a few questions, pick up a few last minute things and GET OUT THERE!
The Backwoods employees’ mission is to create a successful organization of which we are proud to be a part. We encourage individual responsibility,creativity, and personal growth in ourselves and others through open communication, positive feedback, caring, trust, and teamwork.
We enthusiastically share our passion, expertise, and appreciation of the outdoors with our customers to help them experience a fun, credible, non-judgemental, service oriented place of business.
We support community and environmental groups that work towards creating a better quality of life and a healthy planet.
