GETTING YOU ON THE WATER SINCE 2004

We know the area and its waters because we’ve been paddling them for more than 25 years, from the Shoshone River to scenic local lakes, from the Beartooths to Bighorn Canyon and Buffalo Bill Reservoir (to name just a few). We’ve always loved sharing our passion for the outdoors with locals and visitors alike, so in 2004 we opened our doors in a rustic little blacksmith shop-turned-paddler-hangout off Main Street. We've grown and moved our shingle but our commitment to helping you have a great (and safe) day on the water remains the same.

OUR VALUES

We live in and love Cody, and we care about how business is done here. So when we started Gradient Mountain Sports, we identified a few things that really mattered to us:

  • Creating safe & memorable experiences

 

These things continue to drive and influence our operations, and we couldn’t be more proud!
