Organization Description: 
Backcountry.com is an e-commerce specialty retailer founded in 1996 with a $2,000 investment by lifetime friends Jim Holland and John Bresee. Since its founding, the Company has had 14 consecutive years of growth and profitability. Backcountry.com was acquired by Liberty Media in 2007 and is operated as an independent company. The founders are no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the business but do continue to stay involved in board and advisory roles.

Backcountry.com specializes in premium outdoor gear and clothing for skiing, snowboarding, climbing, kayaking, hiking, trekking, trail running, snowshoeing, cycling & powersports. The Company has grown to include eight brands that target four industries; Specialty Outdoor, Bike, Action Sports & Powersports. They sell using three sales formats; Retail, Closeout, and Flash.

Backcountry.com's customers are passionate about outdoor activities and finding the best products that support those passions. Backcountry.com's growth has been fueled by doing an outstanding job understanding their customers' passions, building brand loyalty and a sense of community. A key differentiator and value proposition that has emerged for Backcountry.com is the breadth and depth of its user-generated content. There is simply no other place on the web that a consumer can learn more about outdoor products.
