Shipping + Returns Policy


In most cases, the expected delivery date provided at checkout will reflect a delivery estimate between 3-7 business days and is based on date and time of order placement and package destination. This estimation is not a guarantee that the package will be delivered by the date provided, but rather a prediction regarding the expected transit time. The expected delivery data does not come with a money-back guarantee.

Estes Park Mountain Shop strives to offer the best possible shipping experience for our customers, and as such, we recommend choosing UPS at checkout for a more reliable delivery. Weather delays and other unforeseen circumstances may impact delivery time.

If you aren't in love with your online purchase, you can return almost every item for an exchange or refund at any time as long as it's still in "sellable condition." This means, the item should be unworn (aside from trying it on), unwashed, devoid of any stains, scuffs, tears, or mysterious smells, and needs to be in its original packaging with the manufacturer tags. Discounted/sale items are eligible for return as long as they meet the above conditions. If you're returning a pair of shoes or boots, we need the shoe box back, too. Please DO NOT treat the shoe box as the shipping box. The box we shipped with will be perfect because we like to reuse and recycle.

We believe in a simple return process. You can either hand deliver the unwanted items to our Estes Park store location (2050 Big Thompson Ave, Estes Park, CO) or request a FREE prepaid return shipping label from our customer service representatives. Refunds and/or exchanges will be processed as soon as the original item is received at the Shop. Any original shipping charge is not refundable. Offer valid for online purchases only. One return label will be provided per order.

Non-returnable items include, but are not limited to: gift cards, food items, and load-bearing climbing equipment (harnesses, ropes, and supportive hardware including carabiners and cams).

Proof of purchase is required for all returns or exchanges. A receipt, packing slip, or anything referencing your order number will work, and no return merchandise authorization is necessary.
