Vans Aura Mens Snowboard Boots 2010


Remember when you would walk into a store just to pick up a 32 boot and "wow this is light". No longer will you be doing that just with 32. vans has come to the plate with ridiculously light boots. the new Aura model is no exception. Notice it is also Focus Boa. SICK! The price tag on this boot is ridiculous as well. Only $239 for an Uber light focus boot. Both colorways look great.

Vans Encore 2010

It looks like Vans actually tried with this boot this season. For the past couple of years they made this boot and it sold well. it was comfortable, and it had Boa. This new model is about 2/3 the weight of last years and has the new boa lacing system on the front. the liner is better made and is wicked comfortable as soon as you put it on. not saying the old models were bad, just saying that there are great improvement son this seasons model. The price did increase this season, but once you try it on, you will be hooked. We got in 40 pairs of these today.
I got sick of running out of this model each and every season. Both colorways are sick. you need to come in and try this boot on. You will be amazed!

Gost Clothing Now Available


When I first saw this clothing line, I wanted it for the store. knowing it is Arlo Eisenberg's company made me work harder to get it in. The designs and the colors are great. it is a small line that is only available at select retailers throughout the US. Stop in and check out all the great styles Alpine has to offer.

Almost Cut My hair......


After hearing all the great one liners like..."1984 called and want its hair back", or "how old are you? 16?". I broke down and cut my hair. Oddly enough, as I was sitting here debating on whether to do it, CSN came up on the Itunes library with "almost cut my hair". It made me think that I really don't need to be like david Crosby, and it also reminded me how much I loath Neil Young. So take that CSN, I did cut my hair, and all for the price of $13 plus tip. Ahhhh Feel my freedom!

Dakine Block Hoodie

I have always loved Dakine hoodies and tees, I just never ordered them for the store. Times have changed, and now we have some cool new hoodies from companies we've been dealing with for years. This hoodie is super cool, and it stands out. Dakine doesn't just make luggage, stomps, and gloves.

686 Plexus Axis Soft Shell

Matt jumped at the chance to model this new soft shell from the people over at 686. This jacket is 10,000 waterproof 8,000 breathable. Perfect for everyday wear, and for riding on those not so cold days we get out here in the mighty state of Virginia. Colors on this just POP! Only $150. Size run available.

Flow Era Freestyle Deck 2010

Flow did some fine work with this Freestyle deck. Coming fully rockered with a rad graphic, the era is a price point jib machine. Nice buttery flex, with actual edge grip at higher speeds, this board not only slays in looks, but slays some terrain as well. Feel free to come by and give this deck a sweet "donkey flex"

Flow Rift Focus boa Boot 2010

Focus boa boots are quickly taking over Alpines boot wall. With the ease of entry, and the performance, you cannot go wrong. This is Flow newest entry into the dual zone boa line.

Times new Balance 580 Shoe 686 Collab

Look what arrived on Alpine's doorstep today. The Uber limited times 580 shoe from new Balance. These kicks tie in nicely with the matching outerwear and the snowboard boots. new balance is making some great strides in the snow industry as they have done a collaboration with the strongest outerwear brand on the market. 686 always seems to be 2 steps ahead of everyone else, and this tie in with new Balance proves this point.
This is the first color of the shoe to drop, and will only be available at select accounts throughout the country. be one of the few to own a pair of these, because when they are gone, they are really gone.

Another old friend stopped in today to pick up some new xsjado skates. Dave Dinnison threw down on the box as I tested out this new 50mm lens. It's always great when you can pick up some new skates and test them out immediately in the back of the shop. Enjoy



Damn, it looks like all you did was negative tricks. haha
