Best Store for Mountaineering Equipment

Pipestone Mountaineering

Readers' Pick

Unfortunately, this write-up serves as more of a remembrance than a celebration of Pipestone’s position atop this category. A mainstay in downtown Missoula since the mid-’90s, Pipestone’s new owners announced a liquidation sale just last month. Long-time customers and bargain seekers started scouring the store’s inventory immediately, and yet there’s still more to find. Better get your deal before it’s too late, and this perennial winner closes its doors for good. Pipestone Mountaineering: 129 W. Front; 721-1670;


2. The Trail Head: 221 E. Front; 543-6966;

3. REI: 2230 N. Reserve #300; 829-0432;
