Forgot something? No need to worry! The Gear Shop located in the Boone Family Mountain Center has everything you might need for your family’s outdoor adventures. No matter where the Rocky Mountain trails might lead you, The Gear Shop’s got you covered. From pocket guides on Rocky Mountain National Park to sunhats and snacks for the kids, they’ve got it.
The shelves of the Gear Shop are stocked full with the necessities like sunscreen, handwarmers, and SPF chapstick, but are also home to items that are bound to make your trip a little more exciting. Pick up a copy of “Spooky Campfire Stories” or a guide to mountain biking in Colorado, southern Rocky Mountain wildflowers, or fly-fishing in Colorado rivers. The shop also sells backpacks, maps, as well as men’s and women’s clothing from Outdoor Research who provides quality outdoor clothing like sunhats, rain jackets, and SPF shirts.
Happen to be here when the ground is covered with snow? Don’t let that stop you from getting outside! Grab a pair of award-winning EVA all-foam snowshoes or some MICROspikes. Most importantly, staying hydrated while at such a high altitude is vital so be sure to pick up a snack and a Camelbak or Nalgene water bottle from the shop before leaving for your next hike. Field patches can also be purchased here, giving you a fun and unique way to show off your hiking achievements!
In the kids’ corner of the shop, you can find books like “Do Princesses Wear Hiking Boots?” and “Do Princesses and Super Heroes Hit the Trails?”, two titles that are sure to get children excited about exploring the great outdoors. Smokey the Bear stuffed animals can also be found in this section, the perfect souvenir to remember your time at the YMCA of the Rockies!
No matter what you’re looking for, be sure to stop by The Gear Shop for all of your wants and needs!
