History[edit | edit source]
Altitude Sports was founded in 1984 as a local outdoor and ski shop on in Montreal. In 1999 it launched its store website marking it as one of the first online retailers in Canada. New ownership and a shift towards e-commerce lead to the closing of its flagship store on St-Denis in 2014. Today the Mont-Tremblant store is the last remaining physical location, with 98% of its commercial activities taking place online. Altitude Sports has since re-branded as an online retailer first, specializing in technical clothing, outdoor apparel and gear.
