Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports, Bristol
Our Bristol store sells all ranges and brands, with some seasonal variation, so ski and snowboarding clothing and equipment are available from September to April. The store also has a ski and snowboard servicing workshop, which can get quite busy in the height of the season so make sure you book in advance. It’s located on Whiteladies road, just outside the city centre, in between Bristol and Clifton.
Euan Cameron - Store Manager
Snowboard & Trekking Expert
Euan has been passionate about the outdoors from an early age: camping, hiking and snowboarding in the West coast of Scotland - Glencoe and Nevis Range being local resorts.
“I spend as much time as I can in the mountains, I love snowboarding and discovering new places to ride. Camping and walking is my favourite pastime in the summer, relaxing and fun. I also enjoy mountain biking - taking advantage of the great local trails around Bristol.”
Glencoe “I love riding in the Glencoe resort, It`s just like a natural fun park with natural hits, drops and technical terrain to push yourself. Camping in Glen Etive and the lost valley is just stunning, with breathtaking walks and scrambles all around you.”
Ellie has been hiking since she was a child, thanks to her parents’ love of the outdoors and the fact that they took her to many of the UK’s National Trust Parks from an early age.
She went to University in North Wales, where she joined the climbing club and was able to regularly enjoy the spectacular scenery and walks of Snowdonia. Since then Ellie has completed the Queen’s Scout Gold Award and recent trekking holidays have taken her to Switzerland, France, Northern Italy, The Cotswolds and Exmoor.
Snowdonia. “I know the area really well and it’s got everything; mountains, sea views, a solid climbing history and the highest peak in Wales. Plus, if you can’t face the hike up Snowdon, there’s always the train!”
Andi started climbing as a child in Urkut - a large gorge in her home country of Hungary - before having a break for a few years and starting again in earnest around 2 years ago.
She visits local climbing spots like the Avon and Cheddar Gorges as often as possible, but also loves the fact that the The Climbing Academy is based in Bristol, where she goes twice a week to scale the indoor walls.
Portland by Weymouth. “Portland just really has everything as well as being one of the prettiest sights in the South-West.”
Rachel started snowboarding over 5 years ago, and since then has completed a season in Morzine. She originally learnt to board on the dry slope in Gloucester, and now gets out to the real snow at least once a season.
Recently she went to Colorado for a backcountry trip with snowboarding brand ‘Dragon’, thanks to winning an Ellis Brigham competition. Rachel particularly likes riding fast mountain slopes and snow parks.
Portes du Soleil in Morzine. “I’d always go back to Morzine. You can’t beat it for size and variety. There is a run to suit everyone, from beginner to expert, and there is some really good off-piste terrain, especially if you’re prepared to hike. Nothing beats a nice cold Mutzig either after a day on the mountain. However, if I got the chance to go back to Colorado, it would be a no-brainer.”

"Just wanted to congratulate Mark…for his help on getting a new buckle for my Son’s Full Tilt ski boot that we purchased last year from the Bristol Store. All sorted out by last Friday just in time for the School Half term ski trip. Quality and Professional Service and now that I have just found out today that my son has lost a ski whilst skiing in powder I imagine that I will return to the Bristol Store once again to buy a new pair of Ski’s and Binding’s towards the end of the year. All because of the quality service received from Mark and the manager at the store recently. Thanks once again and keep employing quality staff, it does make a difference."
"I'm just writing to say thank you for the excellent way I was treated in helping me to resolve the problems I was having with my ski boots. I'd like to single out your staff member Will for special praise for the time and effort he took to ensure my replacement boots were fitted properly."
