About Wilderness Exchange

Wilderness Exchange was founder in 2000 with a twofold mission: To make getting outdoors more affordable and accessible to all outdoor enthusiasts and to employ a sales staff passionate about mountain adventure sports in order to provide the highest level of service possible to our customers. These values have proven enduring and timeless. Despite the complete transformation of retail and customer buying habits, and through our own journey from a small consignment shop to one of the leading independent outdoor specialty shops and ecommerce retailers in North America, this core focus and obsession over our customers' needs for their outdoor adventures is cornerstone to our success.
