Altitude Sports is a Canadian online outdoor gear and technical clothing retailer based out of Montreal, Quebec.

History[edit | edit source]

Altitude Sports was founded in 1984 as a local outdoor and ski shop on St-Denis street in Montreal. In 1999 it launched its online store which was the first online outdoor retailer in Canada. New ownership in 2011 shifted focus away from brick and mortar, and closed the St-Denis store in 2014 to concentrate efforts on online retail.[1] Today the store located in Mont-Tremblant is the last remaining physical location, with 98% of its commercial activities taking place online.[2] Altitude Sports has since re-branded as an online retailer for technical, urban fashion and high end outdoor apparel and gear.[3]

Ownership[edit | edit source]

In 2011, Altitude-sports.com was purchased by employee Alexandre Guimond and Maxime Dubois.[4]

Achievements[edit | edit source]

  • In 2016 Altitude-sports.com collaborated with Quartz Co. and Monark™ to produce the first-ever milkweed insulated winter coats.[5]

  • In early 2018, BDC Capital became a minority shareholder of Altitude-sports.com.[7]
