ABOUT US

IMG_0072.JPG

Alpine Shop was founded in 1966. What started as a small ski rental shop to service the newly opened Schweitzer Ski Resort has grown into a year-round business of outfitting fun. Through the years, a highly knowledgeable staff and absolute commitment to the customer has never wavered.

Today, Alpine Shop is one of the largest Snow Sports and Watersports Outfitters in the Inland Northwest. We have two retail locations: one in the heart of beautiful downtown Sandpoint, and the other in the village at Schweitzer Mountain Resort.

Alpine Shop is a family-owned business with a staff whose knowledge and tenure is second to none. Whether you’ve been a customer for 40 years or are just stopping in for the first time, we look forward to assisting you with your outdoor needs.
