About | Tahoe Mountain Sports


Welcome to Tahoe Mountain Sports - Where Quality Gear Meets Outstanding Adventures

At TMS we're all about our community, environment and our customers. We're a community driven, family owned and operated local business based in Truckee, California, a small town filled with great adventures. At Tahoe Mountain Sports, gear isn’t just something we sell, it's our passion, our hobby and our livelihood.

We don't just want to sell you a backpack, we want to educate you about your newest outdoor passion and hey, if your newest thing includes a quality backpack, then we'll help you get the right one for you. You can't get to desolation wilderness without quality gear, education and help from a few guys or girls who have been there.

While those big box shops might throw you a deep discount, we think you'll appreciate our approach to good old-fashioned customer service. At Tahoe Mountain Sports we're with you every step of the way. Instead of dealing with the hassle of call centers and online claim forms, when you call us Dave, Jackie, Christian, Todd, or Pam, or another great staff member will answer the phone and tell you what's up. We’ll also personally answer your emails, posts on our facebook wall or anywhere else you try to get in touch with us.

Community is at our core

We support our local community by working with great nonprofits like: the Sierra Avalanche Center, Tahoe Backcountry Alliance, Auburn Ski Club, Sierra Business Council, Tahoe Food Hub, Mountain Area Preservation, Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue, Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe and the Tahoe Rim Trail Association.

We even get in on the fun of event planning with our Annual Avalanche Education Series, the Truckee Running Series and hosting the annual Tahoe Mountain Sports Disc Golf Tournament in Tahoe Vista. We belong to the Truckee Chamber of Commerce, North Tahoe Business Association and North Lake Tahoe Chamber of Commerce. TMS owner, Dave, is a board member with Mountain Area Preservation, the Outdoor Industry Association Recreation Advisory Council and the Tahoe Backcountry Alliance.
