We are stoked to bring our expertise in human-powdered backcountry travel to the Pacific Northwest with gear and support for ski touring, splitboarding, hiking, and trail running

Our Fremont Retail, Service and Rental Location

At Cripple Creek Backcountry, our mission is to responsibly grow human-powdered backcountry sports and the communities that surround those sports. For years as soon as the lifts close and the snow would start to fade in Colorado we would rush to the Pacific North West to keep the turns going. We fell in love with Seattle and the proximity to great touring and new it was time for a dedicated backcountry shop.

We are excited to offer ski touring, telemark skiing, splitboarding, trail running, and hiking gear. While providing gear is important, we want our shop to serve as a community resource for expert knowledge, backcountry focused events, and educational opportunities.
