  • My friend and I were camping at Lake Louise and on our first of four nights we discovered our MSR camping stove would not light...not good. I'd never had this issue before and after messing with it for a while with no success decided to see if there was a mountain shop in town. We brought the stove to Wilson Mountain Sports and the staff could not have been more helpful, offering tips and suggestions. One of the staff members (did not get his name) offered to let us set it up outside and help us get it working again. We did so and he was able to unclog the fuel line with a makeshift tool and it was good to go. We felt bad because we didn't need to buy anything at the store but he was genuinely just happy to help, and I can imagine this applies to paying customers even more so. Thanks Wilson Mountain Sports for saving our camping trip!
  • Great store in Lake Louise for hiking gear. The prices are reasonable considering where it's located. I've rented mountaineering axes and crampons from this store twice and the rental rates are very reasonable. The gear also worked well and I was able to rent it for a few days.
  • My hiking boots broke the day before, so I had to bite the bullet and buy a new pair in Lake Louise. While the staff was very friendly, they weren't very helpful in the selection process. I ended up buy boots that turned out to be too wide in the front, causing pain on the downhill parts of our later hikes.
  • We rented bikes. Friendly staff. Bikes were carbon and in excellent shape allowing our group to bike up to Lake Louise and back. The store itself was pleasant.
  • The staff there actually knows what they are talking about. It was nice because I had never been on a snowboard when I bought my board. But they advised me something good and not too expensive. And it really worked at well even when I reached an advanced level. I bought my snowboard and boots there before the season started they had a good sale that apparently they do every year a week before the start of the season. I got my gear for a really good price in the exchange rental section. Everything lasted for the whole season. They heat mold the boots for free as well. And if you buy skis and binding they mount the bindings for free. One of my glove broke on the second day. They exchanged it straight away no questions asked even though the glove was bought on sale. I bought a backpack at the retail store at the lake Louise ski resort and a part of it broke the same week. I went to the retail store and they said they couldn't help. I went to Wilson they contacted manufacturer and got me something to replace it. So Wilson>Lake Louise ski resort retail store. I also rented x-country skis there a couple times 25$/day. Really happy with the skis I was given. I just wish they would do half day rentals as well as full day. But oh well.
