Local. Life. Style.

We are Mountain Sports Flagstaff

Mountain Sports was founded on a love of adventuring in the outdoors. Brothers Mark and Bruce Lamberson started the company in 1973 and expanded to Flagstaff in 1980. The tradition of a family owned and operated business is still alive and well as Mark and his daughter work side by side with our active team to share our enthusiasm for playing outside.

Like you, we live and love the casual, local lifestyle. We pride ourselves in offering exceptional, helpful, hometown customer service.

At Mountain Sports, the vibe is always warm and welcoming. We are not only an outdoor shop; we are a gathering spot in the heart of downtown. We open our doors as a community space for locals and travelers alike. We use our retail shop to celebrate our friends and neighbors and their involvement in all things fun and Flagstaff.

In 2013, Mountain Sports celebrated its 40th year in business. For all of us who enjoy the local lifestyle, the adventure has just begun.

  • We just love this store! The staff knows EVERYTHING you need to know when deciding on a purchase and guide you in a really helpful, non-pushy way. My husband bought a Patagonia jacket there the the other day and I loved it so much, I went back and bought one for me! The warmest-yet-lightest weight jacket I’ve ever had. We like to go there often for gifts, outdoor gear, coffee cups and love their awesome assortment of hiking socks. Unlike other outdoor stores, everyone who works there uses the products they sell and knows Northern Arizona so they can give you the inside scoop on what they have to offer.

  • The staff go above and beyond to help you find what you’re looking for. I refuse to go shopping anywhere else for outdoor apparel because Mountain Sports has it all along with excellent customer service.

    The last time I visited, Greg helped me find a Patagonia vest I’ve been searching for all winter. He was nothing but helpful and I had a wonderful time conversing with him. 10/10 would recommend both Greg and Mountain Sports to anyone in Flagstaff.

  • Went into Mountain Sports to browse at their outdoor gear and this young lady named Sara came over and helped/ directed me in the right direction for what apparel i would need for what i wanted to get. Also if she didn’t know the answer to something she would call over an employee who would be able to tell me more about the product which was also nice that she took the time to make sure to get all the facts! I really appreciate her time and great customer service! i know if i ever need help again i can go to her to help me with whatever it may be.

  • Just got off the phone with Katie. She is the bomb dot com. Someone should give her a high five and buy her a beer (providing she is of age). She is super helpful, full of information, and is extremely nice!!

  • I love Mountain Sports. These guys know their gear and are all so personable. Locally owned and operated for as long as I can remember, this IS the place for customer service.

  • My favorite store in Flagstaff! Great end of season sales, and my favorite “Life is Good” tees! I’ve grown quite a collection of the tees over the years, as well as wonderful Patagonia clothes and shoes. Plus – they have a water bowl for your dog inside the front door, and will also give them a treat!

  • Love the wide selection of Patagonia gear! I have stopped in on 2 occasions and the staff has always been very nice and knowledgeable, both about their products, and about hiking in northern AZ!

  • Anything and everything “Life is Good”. Love… love… love it. Everything here is down to earth, earth friendly, casual and inherently brings good times with it.
    The background of Dave Matthews Band doesn’t hurt either.
    Have never had a bad experience here. Customer service is always on top of it’s game. They always have what I am looking for and the charm is equally as stellar.
    I’d come here during a hot weekend in Phoenix any day. Just for this little place.

  • The girl that helped me this morning was awesome! It’s my first time going to hike the Grand Canyon but they just had a snow storm so I needed some snow gears. She was extremely helpful in picking out gears that’s right for me and also gave me a lot of advice as to how to hike it since it could be a little slippery up there. Thanks, I really appreciate it! The gears worked perfect, btw.

  • This is a nice place that has a wide variety of outdoor/camping related gear, books, among other things. There’s a wide variety of stiff to choose from here and for most it might just suffice as your one stop shop to the extent that REI serves as one. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful.

  • I wanted to get my sister and her husband something personal for their birthdays and Mountain Sports had just the right items. I bought a dress for my sister and a Patagonia shirt for her husband. Such nice quality. The staff helped box them up beautifully. The result: they loved their gifts! Wonderful quality from a locally owned store. I’ll be back soon… for myself!

  • Mountain Sports is one of my favorite outdoor stores! Staff is friendly, merchandise is high quality, and it fits perfectly with our little town.

  • Locally owned Mountain Sports has friendly staff and great selection of Patagonia clothing and shoes along with unique jewelry by local artists. It’s located in the heart of downtown Flagstaff and is always fun to visit!

  • Mountain Sports is the foundation of the local shopping experience. A friendly, warm staff in a no-pressure environment… it a must for any Patagoniac!

    Rob Henderson
  • This is such a wonderful store. I will admit that I usually have to save up to shop here, but when I do I always find exactly what I’m looking for and the quality can’t be beat. I am also committed to shopping local as much as possible! Thanks for being here, Mountain Sports Flagstaff!!

  • Great shop in downtown Flagstaff offering the latest in Patagonia, Life is Good and other beautifully crafted unique products. The staff is always friendly and helpful and willing to help you find the perfect fit or the perfect gift. Check them out for First Friday Art Walks where they always have a local artist or writer showcased. As a 1% of the Planet partner, I also appreciate their community focus and always enjoy seeing what programs they support.

  • We love Mountain Sports and have shopped there for years. The owners are a local family and they know their gear and clothing! Northern Arizona is a unique place and it’s wise to shop somewhere that can outfit you with the best products for this variable weather and terrain. We also buy gifts there, like cookbooks, etc. Great, knowledgeable staff is always helpful.

  • How did I end up with 10 different types of Patagonia jackets in my closet? I could blame an obsession with sports fashion, but the full story is that Mountain Sports in the reason. Mountain Sports is always my first stop when I’m shopping downtown, and I’m always there on the first day of their epic end-of-season sales. Beyond selling a brand I respect, the folks that work at Mountain Sports are always friendly, helpful, and low pressure.
