Where Quality Gear Meets Outstanding Adventures

At TMS we’re all about our community, environment and our customers. We’re a community driven, family owned and operated local business based in Truckee, California, a small town filled with great adventures. At Tahoe Mountain Sports, gear isn’t just something we sell, it’s our passion, our hobby and our livelihood.

We don’t just want to sell you a backpack, we want to educate you about your newest outdoor passion and hey, if your newest thing includes a quality backpack, then we’ll help you get the right one for you. You can’t get to desolation wilderness without quality gear, education and help from a few guys or girls who have been there.

While those big box shops might throw you a deep discount, we think you’ll appreciate our approach to good old-fashioned customer service and hassle-free rewards program. At Tahoe Mountain Sports we’re with you every step of the way. Instead of dealing with the hassle of call centers and online claim forms, when you call us, our awesome staff will answer the phone and tell you what’s up. We’ll also personally answer your emails, posts to our facebook or anywhere else you try to get in touch with us.
