Our Story:

Over 50 years ago John and Sidney Maxwell founded a company called The Ski Hut, in Wilton Center, as a way to share their family's  passion for skiing with the community. In 1983 their son, Jack Maxwell changed our name to Outdoor Sports Center, and moved us to 80 Danbury Road in Wilton. The name and location change was part Jack's dream to share his enthusiasm and philosophy; to help grow and nurture respect for the outdoors by using it as our playground. Today, we are still 100% family owned, many of our staff have been with us for 15 years or more, and we are proud to have customers that can recall our "Ski Hut" heritage.

Our commitment remains to promote a friendly and knowledgeable community, to provide only the best gear and service, and to always promote awareness of outdoor resources through their use as a playground. 

Ocean Film Festival


Our next film in the Adventure Film Series is like nothing like you've seen before, as we dive underwater and coast across its surface to explore our world's oceans! The Ocean Film Festival is a fascinating journey, celebrating our planet's vast waters and all of their attributes, from the sports we do on the surface to the incredible life that lives beneath the waves.
On April 2nd at 7:00 PM, join us as we celebrate Earth Day with over two hours of carefully selected short films. Immerse yourself in stories of ocean sports like surfing, deep sea diving, boating, and more, coupled with underwater footage of some of the most majestic creatures on our planet.

Daily Ski & Snowboard Rental Packages


Enjoy more of winter by learning to ski or snowboard! Our daily rental packages make it easy to get fit and out the door, on the right equipment for your skill level. Renting in-store rather than at the mountain will save you valuable time and money on your trip. Try out night skiing after work at a local mountain that's closer and more convenient or a weekend away with our flex rates (below). Daily packages are available throughout the entire ski season, September 1st until April. Fall in love with winter and all it has to offer!
