Mountainman outdoor supply company


Christy Murphy

If you’ve been to the Saratoga store and petted Chief, the shop dog, Christy was likely the person at the other end of the leash! Her journey with Mountainman began when she panic-walked into the store in September 2016 with a NOLS packing list, just before heading out on a semester-long Rocky Mountain back-country trip. She survived and thrived, and returned to thank the team who kitted her out so well, and they then offered her a sales associate job.  

Christy worked at Mountainman intermittently while earning a degree in Outdoor Recreation from SUNY Cortland, and became the buyer for the Saratoga gear and apparel store on Broadway in 2020. Christy believes the outdoors are for all and loves connecting people - and their dogs - with the right gear for their escapades. Christy and Chief are an inseparable team and enjoy hiking, camping, paddling, and exploring the Adirondacks.
