Mountain Hardware Pyxis jacket 2011 Berry


Soft and Buttery is the only way to describe this jacket. Once you put it on, you don't want to take it off. Morgan is wearing this in the Berry Soda colorway. This is a great everyday fleece that looks good with anything. You have to feel it to believe it. Only $100 at alpine and all sizes available.

Union DLX Binder 2011 red

The wait is over. Alpine now has received its allotment of Union Binders. Here is a shot of the New DLX in red. You can't beat this binding at a price tag under $130. It has a stage 1 base, injected EVA bushings for comfort, and aluminum buckles and a steel cage. So if this is the season for new binders, do not wait. These were the first to sell out last year and we expect the same for this season.

Say Goodbye to my little friend


You know those things that sit around your house for years and years and even more years. You don't know why you keep them but you do? Well this old vacuum is one of these items. I remember using this at the old Oakton Shop back in the mid 80's. For some reason it has stuck around and made it to this shop probably in 2001. Well I just found it in a corner I was cleaning and it's time has come. I know if dad is reading this he's saying, "Don't throw that out. It's still got plenty of life". Yep, it probably does. Just not here. So here is the parting shot of the vacuum that has been taped and re wired and kicked around for 30 years. They don't make things like they used to. That' for sure.

Flow Rift Focus Boa Boots 2011

Flow makes Boots? Yes they do, and they are some of the best fitting boots on the market. The Rift focus is one of Alpines best selling models for one reason and one reason only. The FIT is amazing. It hugs the foot and it is extremely comfortable. It also looks great this season. Be sure to come and grab a pair of these before they are all gone. More Flow to come....

Set up of the minute with Rigo

Rigo was due for some new Skates. He killed his last pair of K2's in the span of 4 months. What can we say, the kid skatesd hard. So he stopped in and we set him up with these sweet Valo Bailey's and some featherlite frames in yellow. Super Sick. He is stoked and on his way to the new Herndon park as I write this. So enjoy the new skates, and I hope these lasty longer.

Full Tilt Mary Jane Boots 2011


Well, here they are. Full tilt ladies boots that are now available at alpine. These are coming with an new intuition liner that is super light and extremely warm. Ladies love warmth. The full tilt flex tongue is all the rage. Come in and try on a pair to see how they feel.

Herndon Skatepark is open, and It's amazing

A huge thanks goes out to the town of Herndon for building this amazing skatepark. They did it on a shoestring budget of $175,000 and they job they did is just short of amazing. Thanks to everyone who helped and came to all the meetings to make this park possible. So take care of this spot and enjoy.



Let today's matchup begin


For those of you that know me, I am a loyal Tampa bay fan from back in the day. For those of you that know Matt, you know that he is a die hard Steeler fan. Today's match up of the 2-0 bucs and the 2-0 steelers is going to be one to watch. These 2 teams only play each other every couple of years, so we are pretty pumped for the game. Wish we had it on TV, but we got the updates at least. I wish I could say good luck to Matt, but all I got is "Pewter Power"!

Set up of the minute with Brandon

The Never Summer Descent is out on the pavement as I write this. Brandon has been saving up his money all summer so he could buy a flex deck. One spin around the store on this model, and he had to have it. So now look for him out cruising and smiling. Never summer makes some of the best longbboards in the business. Think Alpine Ski Shop for all of your Longboard needs.

Full Tilt Das Booter is here

Alpine Ski Shop is now proud to offer Full Tilt ski boots to all of its customers. The Booter shown here is an all new design from Full Tilt. It offers a 102 last which is wider than the traditional boot offering from the past couple seasons. It still has the amazing Intuition liner that is wicked light and extremely warm. The flex is like none other ans was perfected back in the 80's when this boot was called the "Raichle Flex On". I should know. because back in 1986, I skied this boot in a red/white colorway, and absolutely loved it. So stop in and give these boots a try.

Set up of the minute With Alex

Alex has been wanting a longboard all summer. He was going to grab some wheels and trucks and put them on an old deck, but he decided to just grab this Gold Coast complete. So now he has his regular deck and a longboard for transportation. I like how he represents the ASS with his sticker. Thanks Alex and Enjoy
