Our Story

High Mountain Sports is the best place in Garrett County to find outdoor sporting equipment and apparel. We sell a wide variety of sporting goods and apparel. During the summer months we sell bicycles, skateboards, longboards, kayaks, wake sports, and stand up paddle boards. When it’s snowing, we offer a superb selection of skis, snowboards, boots, and bindings. Stop by sometime and have one of our experts help you start your next adventure. In addition to all of the great products we have to browse, please take advantage of our full service tune shop. Whether you need us to fix a flat, install a custom component, or take care of your skis, High Mountain Sports has you covered. In the winter, we open up our doors next to Wisp Resort to offer snowsports rentals. We rent alpine skis, snowboards, snowshoes, and cross country skis out of this location and we think you will love renting from us! Our summer rentals consist of dual sport (hybrid) bicycles fit for roads or trails, mountain bikes, kayaks, and paddleboards. We can deliver rentals and also have a pontoon boat available for tours twice a day. All of us at High Mountain Sports are outdoor enthusiasts and are thrilled to have you here. We want to provide you with the best service and give you a buying experience like no other. Whether you are interested in water sports, winter sports, bicycling, or just being fashionable, we have what it takes to make you happy. We have been in business since 1987 and are a proud member of the Garrett County Chamber of Commerce. Although we specialize in retail, we also offer rentals and tuning services as well. High Mountain Sports is a small business with big dreams. We hope that you have an enjoyable experience while browsing our web site and are open to any suggestions, complaints, or concerns. We were founded in November of 1987, so we are very proud to achieve thirty years in the industry and we thank each of you for helping us make it this far. We are a true small business located in the heart of Garrett County, Maryland. We take pride in providing only top notch equipment and apparel, and do so from a single location. Our goal is to help you bring your children up into the outdoors with you. We help by providing the best technology to keep you warm, dry, or cool when needed. Our Annual Ski Swap is an excellent way to always keep your gear growing as your kids do. We often donate to local charities, events, and thrift stores. We always provide the best rental and service rates around and strive to do better.
