Moving Down The Street

Mountain Cultures is coming on 10 years at our current location and has time flown by!  After 14 years in the business of selling fun to our amazing customers it is time to move on to bigger and better things.  Moving down the street to our new location at #2 Royal Vista Link unit 1140 (one block NE from current location on 112th Ave) will enable us to have more space for the services and products our customers are asking for.  We couldn't be more grateful for this opportunity to upgrade our store to serve you better. 

Mountain Cultures had its humble beginnings in our garage in 2008.  We wanted to give our customers more selection and services but were limited with our garage space.  In 2013, with unwavering support from our family/customers/suppliers we moved Mountain Cultures to our first bricks and mortar store in Royal Oak.

Through feelings of nervous excitement we opened our doors showcasing everything we had to our handful of loyal customers, friends and a few folks that happened to be passing by from Tim Horton's.

Looking back on that opening day we see how modest we were in terms of brands and retail experience.  What we lacked in those early days we made up for in customer service, constantly pushed ourselves over every hurdle, diligently training ourselves and striving to make the experience fulfilling and educational for our customers.  

We are so appreciative to have such incredibly experienced staff and a rock star store manager who make it all come together.  Our staff all have a passion for sport and include national ski team members, accredited shop technicians and certified paddle board instructors, giving customers a professionally guided shopping experience. 


From the beginning it was always important for us to give back to the athlete community through fund raising and connecting athletes with corporate sponsors. Mountain Cultures Owner/Founder Jay Vaughan was an ex-national ski team member, world cup medalist, Professional ski coach and FIS freestyle ski judge over the years/decades which naturally connects us to athletes, events and local up and coming talent.  We are so proud of all our Mountain Cultures team riders, who train vigorously to be top athletes and represent Canada on National teams, in the X-games and at the Olympics!

Now we are ready for the next chapter of our journey.  With a selection of many brands/variety of products and a multitude of services we are equipped to better serve our patrons at our new larger location.  Our customers are the main reason we are successful and we would not be moving into our new space without your continued support. Thank you to everyone who offered words of encouragement, stopped by to check out new products, referred our shop to a friend and those who wear their Mountain Cultures apparel around town.  These simple acts have a larger impact than you can ever know.  Thank you!  


We are thrilled to be your NW Calgary ski shop!

Looking forward to seeing you in our new space #2 Royal Vista Link unit 1140 in 2023!!!
