Ride DFC Delta Movement


What you see is what you get ... no gym-sock bulge and no gimmicks. Delivering the ultimate in freestyle performance, the minimalist Delta removes all unnecessary materials for an ultra-light binding that offers super mobility and flex in every direction. This binding is super sick and super limited. Check out ride's DFC site for info on DFC product.

Ride Delta Movement


New Ride Delta Movement in The sunburst red colorway. This binding is simply fantabulous. Yes, I did just make that word up, but it is the truth. In the mobility line of bindings, it comes in 3 sizes. This is because of the new,lighter weight baseplates. Comes with the new and improved ultralight quick draw ratchets, and the landlite footbed for even more comfort than before. The minimalistic design of this binding has removed all unnecessary materials and it offers super mobility and flex in every direction. Check out ridesnowboards.com for info on these and other great binders.

Burton Mens Esquire Jacket

Burton's new Esquire jacket looks good. This colorway,True Black, has some great pinstripes. This can work with black,grey, and even white pants. The jacket is fully seam sealed and 10,000 mm waterproof. An extremely functional jacket at $200. New Anon goggles are adorning my face. The model is the Helix, and that amazing color is green. We love the Helix goggle at Alpine because it is super comfortable, it looks great, and it is only $50. Yes we also carry it in black, but come on. The green colorway is sick.

Fischer RX Pure Heat


Fischer doesn't just make nuts, they make sick skis. Sure their marketing sucks, but they still know what they're doing when it comes to making airplane parts and skis. They are dubbing the heat line,"RX on Steroids." Well, we all know that steroids aren't so good and can make you small in certain manly areas. So Alpine prefers to Dub these, "The first good looking skis Fischer has put out in a while." That being said, These heat skis ski well too. This ski is 72 under foot with a 14 meter turn Radius. Pretty much a do everything, go anywhere, all encompassing intermediate ski...Whew. That's a lot of words. It is coming with A FS 10 Railflex Binding with a DIN of 3-10.

Nordica Speed Machine 8 Mens


The Speed Machine 8 was overlooked by Alpine last season, and I am still kicking myself. This boots fit is incredible. It has a flex index of 100, Full micro- adjustable buckles, a big beefy power strap, and the salt and pepper colorway is great. This is a perfect mid to upper level performance boot. Treat your feet right this ski season. Boots do not have to be uncomfortable, and Nordica definitely proves that with this speed machine.

Salomon Falcon 9

Salomon Falcon 9 is back in stock. This boot sold out extremely fast last season. Its fit is on the narrow side and it has performance that is through the roof. It has an ultra light shell and a wicked comfortable liner. Last year, Salomon was sold out of these boots by early November. We doubled our order from last year to keep up with the demand. If you hav a narrow foot and crave a performance boot, this is the one for you!
Its performance last offers optimal driving precision along with the reinforced energyzer that provides a more progressive and responsive flex. The Falcon has all new features such as second skin shell, second skin last, sensitive liber, reinforced energyzer, and spaceframe shell profile.

Again with the green. We can't get enough creature wood in this store. The new cab board is sweet, especially at 8.26. I put the Strubing in the pic even though it is a Santa Cruz. It's green and amazing. All hail Rob Roscopp.

Ride DFC Deuce

Ride has a new DFC edition boot this season for men, and it is the Deuce. Call me a sucker for Kelly green, but I love this boot. It has a great fur lined upper and the inner liner is made of Body Active Foam. Ride says "no oven needed, the boot forms naturally with body heat. We tried this on, and the more you wear this boot, the more comfortable it gets. This, of course, is a limited edition boot. Grab them while you can.

What kid doesn't want to be rocking out this winter in Spyder apparel. These guys are loving the new Mini challenger jacket. Alpine is carrying this jacket for kids in both the blue and red colorways. Matching pants are also available for these ensembles.
