Our Story

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 2020, Mountain Sports celebrates its 40th year as a Flagstaff locally owned business. For all of us who enjoy the local lifestyle, the adventure has just begun.
