Backwoods Austin

Made possible by


At Backwoods, Austin, we know that we are lucky to live in such a great vibrant city with a vital outdoor-oriented community, but we also feel incredibly fortunate to work every day with such a talented and knowledgeable team of co-workers! Every single person on the staff has a valuable contribution to make and we all benefit because of the diversity of our interests, hobbies, and pursuits. Whether we are helping a family that is new to camping choose a sleeping bag for each family member, or discussing the finer points of trail running with a local running coach, the chance to share our experience with a customer is what makes the job so rewarding. Part of what makes Backwoods such a compelling place to visit are the various personalities and experiences of our staff. One of the employees is an engineer, another teaches cross-fit and is a yogi; our staff also includes a retired fireman, an Air Force Veteran and a professional photographer. We are all united by our love of the outdoors and several staff members specialize in adventure travel and have visited the following foreign destinations: Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Denmark, North Africa, Thailand, Sweden, Canada, New Zealand, Amsterdam, Mexico, Greece, Austria, Belize and traveled throughout the United States to Hawaii, Zion, Yellowstone, the City of Rocks, Yosemite, Denali, and Glacier National Park.
