The original outdoor equipment store in Revy, FSS has been here so long that we know more about where to go, what to do, how to get there and what you'll need, than anyone else.

We are a small team who have mostly been in Revelstoke for a pretty long time. Elmer, who started the store, has been in town since 1980. Eric our sales associate was born in Revelstoke & Elmer’s wife Liz moved from England to Canada in 2002, then to Revelstoke in 2003. Our latest import to the team is Remi, who headed out West a few years ago and never left!


Elmer is the old guy who rules. Our original free spirit; he crewed on a Norwegian fishing boat, travelled the world, is a pilot of a 1966 Cessna 150, a long distance biker, and became a dad for the first time at 57! Committed to community and living life with an active family, he has a passion for helping parents and kids get the most from outdoor experiences. As a snowboarder and skier, kayaker and hiker, Elmer has extensive knowledge of brands and products, providing customers with the right selection for Revelstoke conditions.


Our expat from the UK had dreams of Wimbledon but settled for adventure in the mountains, growing a passion for mountaineering and rock climbing, skiing, rafting and hiking. Addicted to freedom, she would always rather be outside.

After Elmer sold Liz her first snowboard, she married him and has become the maestro behind the scenes who makes S%#T happen. Liz and Elmer are committed to life as active parents and to providing great gear for children and active families.


Sam has been on the open road in one form or another since 5 months old, securing many miles under his belt at the tender age of 6. Admired for his prowess in the playground, Sam is a lover of the outdoors who would rather sleep in a tent than a house any day.Sam’s favourite pastimes include climbing, snowshoeing, skiing and hiking and can often be heard saying: “Go faster Mama!”


Sam was our tiniest product tester, but was joined by brother James in 2012 (nicknamed ‘Bam Bam’ for his toughness on gear). James learned to walk, by doing one giant leap for babykind out of his toboggan and onto the snow. ; James’ favourite activities..eating, trampolining and getting muddy!


Born and bred in Revy, Eric was fed raw jalapenos as a child, which may explain why he moves so fast, everywhere, all the time. For Eric, the outdoors is just a way of life. An avid skater and snowboarder, he has 2 fake front teeth, makes movies, is a drummer and jumps off cliffs for kicks. He also has locals-only knowledge about sweet powder stashes. Can be bribed with jalapenos…


Remi couldn’t help but spark his passion for the outdoors after getting a rad snowboard with plastic bindings at age 8. That was it, the hills of Quebec soon weren’t enough! The lure of the bigger mountains out west were too tempting and so he rolled into Revelstoke, land of the powder dreams. Quote “I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere, the genuine and unique personalities, breathtaking landscapes and of course, the legendary Revy powder!!”. Remi loves to splitboard, climb, hike, camp and tell people all about the great gear available in Free Spirit. His goal is to share his passion for adventure in Revelstoke as one of the most beautiful places on earth!
