A Wealth of Information
Here at the Estes Park Mountain Shop we love the outdoors and get outside as much as we can to enjoy the beauty of our surroundings and lead that healthy, active lifestyle we love so much. To help you enjoy that same great lifestyle, we are here for you, to educate and inform, whether it be a product in the store or a trail in the national park.
The Estes Park Mountain Shop doesn't just have regular employees. Our staff is passionate about the outdoors and that translates to the products they sell. They love the outdoors just as much as you do and can usually be found outside on their days off. You won't find pushy salespeople here, just people who want to help you to find the right gear at the right price and get out there and have fun! That's what we are all about.
Dave buys all the amazing gear we carry in our shop. Thanks to him, we have all the latest and most high-tech gear as well as the awesome bargains for which we are known. On his days off this enigma of a man can be found roller-blading around the lake with his K9 pal Rufus or riding his dirt bike in places he shouldn't.
Zach does it all! He's a high-octane machine - tuning skis, fixing your bike, reorganizing the bargain basement, skiing Longs Peak and mountain biking Crosier... ALL IN ONE DAY! His daily mission is to serve and educate the youth of America, that they might be better at all of their pursuits.
Nate is a jack of all trades! He enjoys snowboarding, fly fishing, rock climbing, mountain biking and getting outdoors any chance he gets. Nate is a bike tech and ski tuning wiz. He is excellent at helping customers find just the gear they need.
Was that a supersonic plane or did I just see Greg's slow-pitch softball slider go past the plate? Greg is invaluable as our inventory receiving chief but more importantly valued for his gentle demeanor, his kindness, and his talent as a musician. Catch him several nights a week playing bluegrass at the Rock Inn!
He hasn’t yet fathered a child, but instead adores his two adopted babies – the climbing gym and his dog Reggie. Andrew’s influence has touched every inch of our gym and we’re oh-so-grateful. He hails proudly from Texas but you wouldn’t guess it when you see him cruise by in his Prius.
Rob Mardock - Our Fearless Leader
Rob keeps the Mountain Shop in line. Without him we might sit around talking about the last alpine route we did, the awesome spring skiing, or the sweet North Face softshells we just got in. Thanks for keeping the shop running Rob! PS: We all know he wants to join in the conversation with his tales of adventures!

Zion is as unique as his name! Full time Mountain Shop employee part time adrenaline junkie. When he’s not on the clock he’s either rock climbing or climbing mountains with his husky Aries.
Hannah Stone is from St. Louis Missouri (Go Cards!) She is an avid summit chaser and climber when not working at the Mountain Shop. After a long day being outdoors Hannah loves to play board games with her roommates, and play with her miniature dachshund Noelle.
A true Estes Park native, ask him anything! Sean has been backpacking + hiking in the Rockies since he was 6 mo. old. Nicknamed "Mtn Man" by his peers, he's always in search of the path less traveled. In the summer he enjoys bagging summits, climbing, shooting, jeeping + backpacking. In the winter he's shredding the gnar in the backcountry on his skis + breaking trail for winter ascents. On rare occasions he isn't outside, he's producing music, writing poetry or planning the next big adventure.
Originally hailing from the mountains of Montana, Jenny is at home in the Rockies. An outdoorswoman at heart, she grew up hiking mountain trails and hitting the slopes on a pair of skis - activities she still enjoys to this day. A wild and adventurous spirit has lead Jenny on many wondrous travels around the world, fueling a passion to never stop exploring. When home, she enjoys spending time with her husband and their trusty sidekick, a miniature dachshund named Zoey.
