    The Sea Cadet kids were doing tagging outside this for fundraising for their cadet core. Cadet kids raising fund is very Canadian traditional event for kids raise fund for veteran, for their sports, or for their cadet. We were surprised that the two store manages of this location request the kids to move out and go to other stores. Other big chain stores like Canadian Tire, Save On Food, Superstore, ... are very welcome for the kids to tagging at their store. This Store manages seems to need more training understanding the Canadian culture and tradition and need more understanding about Sea Cadet.

    Great gear, some send really over priced! Staff really knowledgeable which is very helpful. Nice that they offer workshops on outdoor navigation, bike repairs etc- that is a great way to engage with the community! But a friend of mine said she cannot get size 14 there, that seems weightist and not helpful, lots of people do activities over the size of 10!!

    OMG, climbing gear heaven. Awesome range of ropes and shoes. I had to stop looking because I would have maxed out my credit card. Just thinking about the range makes me want to go back and I am home in Australia now! Thanks Henry. PS Henry goes there for the Ski stuff and there was tons of that too.

    MEC is great. Besides the fact that I never remember to bring my membership card with me. Their clearance sales are always a great deal, they carry everything from socks to kayaks. I have purchase plenty here over the past 2 years. The tent I have is an entry level 2 person tent that has treated me very well on numerous overnight hikes up and down around the whistler area. I purchased a sleeping bag as well and was thrilled with the selection they offer - being mildly allergic to down, they offer synthetic materials that more than met my needs for warmth. Shoes, shirts, coats - all are top of the line. I buy these products because I know they will last. The advice I receive from the associates in the store is always honest and very helpful; most of the employees have extensive outdoors experience and know their products well. On my most recent trip, I was talked OUT of buying a product because it did not meet the reps personal standards of satisfaction. Very impressed with the location - will definitely continue to shop here.

    Great store with wonderful customer service! I go to MEC regularly to purchase backpacking food and hiking gear, as well as for recommendations from the staff. In addition, I had a parking issue with the EasyPark and worked with one of the managers, Cory, to find a solution. Wonderful store!
