WHY?

Why Jackson Hole? Why an outdoor gear store?
What's important to us?

Everyone at Headwall Sports has made the choice to live, work and play in Jackson Hole. We all have our own reasons, but one that we share is our passion for, and belief in, the importance of experiencing the outdoors.  

Situated between two national treasures, Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, Jackson Hole offers a vast playground of world-class camping, hiking, bicycling, fishing, skiing/snowboarding, backcountry, nature, and wildlife scenery. 

Yes we are a store. And yes we have to sell (and in our case buy) stuff to pay the bills. But its not the selling that gets us excited. Rather it’s being part of a like-minded community who love and appreciate recreating in the outdoors.  

Being ‘gear heads’ we have a firm belief that outdoor gear & apparel shouldn’t be prohibitively expensive. And that quality gear with a little bit of ‘lovin’ shouldn’t just be thrown away. We view Headwall as one link in making the outdoors more accessible for more people.

We are very lucky that our work is directly connected to the outdoors we enjoy and love so much. Its why we want people to be inspired to get outside and seek their own adventures and feel a passion for the natural world.  

Our goal is for you to have memorable experiences, not just sell you more stuff. More then just a store, we want to connect & inspire like-minded people seeking to explore, recreate and get outside!
