Grassroots Outdoor Alliance welcomes The Mountain Air to the organization as a Retail Member.

The Mountain Air was established in 1975 in San Luis Obispo, California. A locally owned, specialty outdoor retailer, they specialize in hiking, backpacking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding and travel and offer excellent customer service and only the highest quality outdoor apparel, equipment, footwear, and accessories. The Mountain Air has long been a member of the San Luis Obispo and greater Central Coast of California communities. For over 35 years, they have served their customers and the community with the highest standards of quality product and outstanding customer service.

Wayne Patterson, founder and owner of The Mountain Air in San Luis Obispo, shares why he chose to join Grassroots. “The Mountain Air strives to be as professional as possible at all times. That is why we look to the industry (outdoor industry) for ways to improve our business practices. We look at suppliers and industry peers for that knowledge and expertise that will enhance our business plan.”

“With that said we are so pleased to be a part of the Grassroots Outdoor Alliance. I feel that the association with this organization falls in line with the philosophy and business practices of The Mountain Air and look forward to a growing relationship.”

Staff from The Mountain Air will be attending the Grassroots Summit to be held in Loveland, CO from June 9 – 12, 2014.
