We have a pretty simple philosophy...we'll take care of you. If we can't, we'll find someone who can. Our first goal isn't to get your money. Certainly, we want to make a living. Who doesn't? We won't do that at the expense of pushing you into the wrong gear in order to make a sale or clear out inventory. Our first goal is to make sure you leave our shop happy. If that means just stopping in to pet the pups, great. If that means leaving with an entire ski package and outfit, great. Relationships are more important than a bottom line. We're extremely confident in the idea that if we take care of our customers, they will in turn take care of us. It's what has propelled us thus far. Stop in. We're always up for a beer and gear talk.
Tygart Mountain Sports is owned and operated by Patrick and Angela Ross and Paula Hall. The name Tygart (pronounced "Tiger" with a "t" at the end) comes from the Tygart River and Tygart River Valley in WV where Patrick and Angie spend their summers at the summer camp they operate. In January of 2014, Patrick and Angela saw the opportunity to purchase the business (what was then The Great Outdoors Ski and Sports), and worked with Phil and Paula over the next several months to secure ownership. In July of 2014, ownership was secured and Tygart Mountain Sports officially opened on August 29, 2014.
