About Us

Chopwood Mercantile is an  Outdoor Shop in Crested Butte that provides unique gear and guidance to foster experiences in wild places.  We are taking our decades of mountain retail and merging it with the concept of a 'public house' along with a little bit of old-school friendly mercantile.

Founded in 2015 by Travis Underwood and Lisa Cramton

We Believe: 

 - That one must travel wildly and far.

 - Everything we do reflects everything we are.

 - In conscious, conscientious and storied products with a purpose.

 - Being educated, experienced and enthusiastic about our role in the community.

 - Our behavior reflects many currencies, our business is our vehicle to nurture and grow them.

 - Chopwood is our craft, for growth, risk and creativity.

 - Every transaction cultivates a relationship: It’s honest, fair, guaranteed and is no matter what our word.

 - That on which one focus grows.

 - We find our groovy.

 - Lastly, always chop wood and carry water.

"Before enlightenment, chop woodcarry water. After enlightenment, chop wood,carry water." - Zen Proverb
