In 1996, lifetime friends and skiing enthusiasts Jim Holland and John Bresee set up a website, pulled $2k out of their own pockets and began selling avalanche beacons out of their garage in Heber City, Utah. Backcountry.com was founded with a humble beginning but with the secret sauce of any truly great company, a passion for doing what they loved in life. For Jim and John this was not just skiing, it was being on the forefront of the technology that empowers them to truly push themselves to the limit in the sport they loved. From there their mission was born, their destiny defined. They wanted to sell the best outdoor gear there was, and be the best at doing it. Backcountry.com is a household name in the world of outdoor lovers, from year round ski bums chasing the endless winter to weekend warriors pushing it on the mountain trails. From climbers to snowboarders, mountain bikers to mountaineers, they flock to Backcountry.com when they want to find the best selection of top gear for their outdoor pursuits.
