Gnu Park Pickle 09




PTX is in the house. That is correct, Alpine is the proud owner of 4 new Pickle technology decks from gnu. What makes these different from the lib skate banana you ask? It's the heel side edge. There is a defined heel side edge on this deck that has a deeper side cut, so it's easier to hook up turns. Only available in a 156 for the moment, this deck is pretty sweet. Stop in and check these beauties out. They will not be around for long.

Boot Dryers

We have experimented with different boot and glove dryers over the years and we always fall back on this one. It plugs into a wall and is easy to pack in your luggage. They only retail for $30 and I never have anyone come back and tell me they broke, or they didn't work. Buy one for the rider in your family this Christmas. It's money well spent for happy,dry feet.

What happens in Italy....




These pics were sent to me from my Union/Capita/Coal rep. He is in lovely Italy right now getting line presentations from the head honchos. That is one hell of a stocked bar.
This time of year is when reps from all over the country gather with their respective companies to see the direction the company is heading.


Union is now entering year five, and have a ton of steam behind them. They are possibly the fastest growing binding brand in the country, and for good reason. The product works, the team rocks, and they look DOPE. So here's Martino talking abouut year 5.Could we be seeing a Flintstone themed binder??? We'll have to wait and see. Be prepared, because in the upcoming weeks, we will be seeing all of the 2010 product leaking it's way onto the infoweb, and I will do my best to get you great shots of what Alpine plans to carry next season.


Until then, go ride. Enjoy the winter. Liberty opens Friday.






Circa 99 Vulc


This is by far the best looking Circa shoe Alpine has ever offered. Amazing color for winter and the orange laces set it off. Comes with back up chocolate laces. This shoe is a must see. Full size run available today. This shoe is going to be on a lot of Christmas lists.

Circa Allie 208 vulc


This shoe is part of the Thrasher Collab with Allie. Tongue and side says "Skate and Destroy". Sick colorway with the orange stitching. It also has lace covers which helps laces last at least on kickflip longer.

Circa Allie Cobra Orange

Winter colors and higher shoes are all around. The new Circa Allie Cobra in black/white/orange in stock today. Mid skate shoes are all the rage and this is one of Alpines best sellers. All sizes available.

Gnu Park Pickle 09



I must say that I like getting my info direct from the rep and feeding it out, not the other way around. I heard of this deck a couple of months ago from my rep. I kind of forgot about it until I saw it on Shay's blog post. I called my rep immediately and told him I needed this deck. He was allotted 50 to sell along the east coast. I was able to procure 4 of them. They will only be coming in one size, that is a 156. Since it's BTX, it can be ridden a little smaller.

This board will also utilize a steeper side cut on its backside edge; something Santa Cruz has been using in its twins for years. This board should be in before the first of the year. I will keep everyone posted.

Salomon Idol 8 Ladies boot

This is a great ladies model. I ordered this boot after I looked at our boot wall, and noticed I had nothing for my wife. This is a light performance boot with a tight heel pocket, and a 100mm lasted toe box. Perfect for the advanced lady skier who seeks a cushier ride, but can still throw it down a mogul slope.

Ride DFC DH LTD




Here it is in all of its glory. The limited edition "Shop Only" DFC DH. That sure is a lot of letters, but this board is amazing. By far the premiere freestyle deck in the ride line-up, this deck has tons of snap and pop and is super stable flying down the hill. Only one in stock in a 159. It matches the limited Contraband binders perfectly. (See Below)
When Ride makes a limited board, they spare no expenses. Alpine is the premiere Ride dealer in the Northern Va area. Stop in to see this and everything else ride has to offer.

Ride Contra Band LTD First Peek


Here is the much Ballyhooed 4th colorway in this years new contraband from Ride. This limited colorway is available only to shop employees and is much sought after. It ties in with the limited DH deck. It has gold and red tones, and the toe strap is all red. Only 1 pair of these in stock.

Emerica Francis Suski Collab

Holy Hotness! Do you feel the heat emanating off of this great shoe? I do. The Francis is one of Emericas best selling shoes, and this colorway is super sick. All sizes available.

Emerica Jerry Hsu Skate Shoes



Jerry hsu's new shoe is in stock, and it looks great. We love collab shoes, and this is no exception. The tongue says enjoi skateboarding, and the panda theme runs across the back. The pandas are also on the footbed. Sole of the shoe is a bright yellow. Mid cut shoes protect against ankle bite and are super comfortable. All sizes available.
