Gear Up at Mountain Air Sports

Mountain Air SportsMarrying my husband there was a certain understanding that our lives would not be sedentary. He was a mountain biking, skiing, rock climbing, kayaking, “Hood-to-Coast” running weekend warrior. He was not one to line up the sports schedule on Sunday and sit idly by.

And being a scuba instructor, amateur marathon runner, weekend mountain bicyclist and brand new snowboarder we were able to join our love of the outdoors and continue being active together. Moving back to the Central Coast and having our son added new dimensions to our love of the outdoors. Sometimes it is a sedentary day playing at our favorite beach that fits the bill. We even introduced our then three year old to hiking by taking him to the top of Bishop’s Peak — he did it “all by himself.” When the time came it was only logical that our son was going to be introduced to snow. Three years ago we bought a package of lift tickets and rental gear at one of the many charity auctions we attend and found ourselves once again in Mountain Air Sports — one of my husbands “REI-raised” favorites.

Explaining that I was an amateur snowboarder with a five year lapse since my last time riding a board they made the re-entry process a breeze and soon I was outfitted with a like-new board and boots. Our son was similarly treated and instantly delighted to be booted up and clipped in to his first pair of skis. Since then my husband’s skis have been regularly serviced there — where the shop experts transform these 15 year old skis into like-new condition — amazing him every time.

This year we needed a bit more gear — some new mittens and socks for the ever-growing seven year old boy. A helmet for me – as I am now just good enough on my board to be dangerous. As always the staff at Mountain Air was chock full of information and helpful with fitting my unusually large cranium.

Mountain Air covers a wide range of outdoor gear for hiking, climbing, kayaking, and of course snowboarding and skiing. Their rental gear is top-notch and their staff practices what they preach and can offer expert advice in a friendly manner. I highly recommend you check this little local spot out — it will likely surprise you that they carry so much and are hiding right in plain sight in San Luis Obispo on Marsh! Even beginners don’t feel like it here… and who knows — maybe you’ll pick up a new outdoor activity or two before you leave!
