Compound Equipment Service and Sales

Make no mistake about it, High Altitude Archery does sell and service compound bow equipment. For new equipment, in addition to the exception Xpedition Archery bows, we offer releases (thumb, back and index finger), sights, scopes, peeps, stabilizers, stands, arrows, broadheads, and more.  Our expert staff will help you identify which equipment will give you the biggest bang for your buck.  Are you trying to decide between a new release or scope?  We invite you to come and inspect the equipment first-hand and talk with the experts.

Need Compound Bow Maintenance?

Whether you are looking for a new custom string and cable set to be installed for the season, or looking for a tweak to the draw length or weight High Altitude has you covered. Along with strings, we can install new string peeps, D-loops, drop-away arrow rests, and any other accessories you might need added. If you just need a tune-up we can help there too.  We can verify and adjust draw weight, draw length, nock location, center serving and more. String, cable and safety inspections are always free. Once you're satisfied your equipment is in good working order, our technicians can rough-in any remaining tuning items, or you can work with one of our instructors to fine-tune your shot from the archer forward. If you have any questions, feel free to drop us a note using our contact form, or call us at (720) 491-3309.

The Mind-body Connection That Archery Provides

When people want to find a sport that benefits their mind and their body, they look at yoga, kickboxing, and martial arts in Longmont. Sometimes they look at competition sports like a martial art for kids, but what happens when they want a sport in which the entire family can participate? That is where archery comes into the picture.

Archery Is a Competitive Sport for the Whole Family

The nature of archery is very much a mixture of team sports and solo sports. For that reason, archery is a perfect sport for everyone. The archery community is very welcoming to everyone, even people with special needs. It offers a great mind-body connection that adults seek and teaches life lessons that kids need. Because the focus of competition in archery is on the individual, everyone competes at their own pace. Archery, however, is more than competing. It is a sport that teaches us about ourselves. It requires discipline over mind and body as form is a critical aspect of being an accurate archer. It also requires that we think about what we do. That process shuts out the rest of the world and allows us to be one with our body. By connecting the mind to the body we free ourselves to succeed.

The Mind-body Connection

Archery is not just a physical sport. It is also a sport that makes you think about what you are doing and how your body is reacting to what you do. Accuracy, in archery, is a mixture of perfect posture
