Union Force Acid Green 2012

The force is back, and this is my new favorite color. Acid Green is sick. It still has the stage 2 base and injected EVA Bushings. But check out the new toe cap design. It's great. The binding is absolutely bombproof. See why this is Alpines number 1 selling binding model.

Full Tilt Booter 2012



I thought last years orange boot was awesome. This one is way better looking. The translucent red shell makes the boot pop! Also this new last is incredible. It's wider than the original and super comfortable. The intuition liner is lightweight and warm. The 3 buckle flex is unmatched. Be sure to check these out. Full tilt is quickly becoming the go to brand in everything twin tip and freeride.

Set up of the minute with Melissa

Melissa is trying out for the NOVA rollergirls, and she was without skates. So today was the day she got herself the very best pair of skates on the market. The Antik AR1. BOOM! These things are amazing. Why not treat your feet to the very best there is. So good luck, and have fun at tryouts.

Set up of the minute with Zach

Zach here had been saving up for a while and finally the wait was over. He grabbed the dregs drop through longboard with Gullwing trucks and luv yo mutha wheels. He was Stoked! Look at that smile. We were super sad to hear that only 2 days after he got this board, that is was completely run over when it went through an intersection without him. So this is the last pic we have of it in good form. Lesson to be learned: Be careful and always skate in control. Longboards have a tendency of getting away from you at times. Sorry Zach, New one is ordered and should be here soon, with a follow up blog post..

Nordica Ladies Velvet Ace Freeride Boot 2012

look at this boot. I mean look at it for real. It is awesome. The colors, the fit, the 3 buckles. All of this says awesome. Nordica did not have this boot last year, and it was a mistake. this year they remedied this with the new velvet ace. The boot has the 100 mm last that is super comfy, and also has a strong foothold.
Here is what NORDICA SAYS:
The newest technology and design brings a 3 piece boot that is the lightest on the market. Dual-Fold tongue design provides progressive flex, making the boot easy and reactive at first then progressive to stiff to support hard landings. Full Shock Eraser technology provides the necessary dampening .
Come in and see it for yourself.

Alpine's Main man, Ed Bunch, Celebrates another Birthday today!

Today we celebrate Edison Bunch's Birthday. Yes the man who founded Alpine Ski Shop is turning 72 . He had a dream many years ago to start a ski shop in the Northern Virginia area. The small A frame building in Tysons corner housed the first Alpine ski Shop in 1971.Through thin and thick times he persevered and made Alpine what it is today. His enthusiasm for the love of skiing was his driving force, and his spirit was infectious. He cared about every customer who came through his door and wanted them to love skiing as much as he did.
40 Years later, we still share his love of all the sports Alpine carries. Customers still come in to this day to tell us a great story of how Eddie Bunch got them their first pair of skis.
So from all of us we wish you a very Happy birthday.

Here is Ed hitchhiking through Europe in his young twenties.
