In 1972, Outpost Sunsport, a locally owned and operated outdoor retail store, started as a small backpacking and mountaineering store in Fort Collins, Colorado. Outpost has gone through many changes over the years, keeping one thing in mind: we love the outdoors.
Outpost became a specialty downhill ski shop in 1983 and added snowboarding in an ever growing category in 1985. We pride ourselves in having created one of the finest specialty ski and snowboard shops in the Rocky Mountains. We have received national awards including the SnowSports Industries of America Ski Retailer of the Year for the Rocky Mountains and we are constantly striving to provide the highest quality products to help all of us enjoy our passions.
Although the product mix has changed over the years, many things have stayed the same: providing excellent customer service to our wonderful customers and trying to make a difference in Northern Colorado. We are proud to support Poudre School District, Colorado State University, Foothills Gateway, Respite Care, The Gardens on Spring Creek, Colorado Open Lands and many other Northern Colorado and Larimer County organizations.
Randy has been at the helm of the Outpost ship for over 4 decades! As the owner of Outpost Sunsport, he loves sharing his passion for the outdoors with customers every day so that they may find the same enjoyment. Randy is a nature lover through and through and spends his free time downhill and backcountry skiing, hiking, biking and golfing. Because of his dedication to Outpost, the northern Colorado community has a one-stop outdoors shop and can create their own adventure.
Matt has spent the past decade with the Outpost team and loves the outdoor-loving culture he gets to experience on a daily basis. You can always count on Matt sharing his passion for skiing (and patio surfing!) with his coworkers or Outpost’s loyal customers. Outside of the store, he enjoys mountain biking, kayaking and backcountry skiing with his dog, Timber, and fine-tuning his home-brewing skills. If he could spend a week anywhere in the world, he would choose to kayak the straits of Scotland, stopping at distilleries along the way.
Andrea has been with Outpost for six years and loves being part of a locally owned and family-oriented shop. As an avid skier, snowboarder and patio lounger, she imparts her “work hard + play hard = relax hard” on the many customers with whom she interacts. In her spare time, Andrea enjoys a full range of hobbies – Pilates, tennis, gardening and piano playing, just to name a few – with her pooch, Greta (a Viszla with tons of character!) by her side.
