Ca$h for Clunkers Set Up of the Minute with Jonathan

Jonathan had a problem.  He's a good snowboarder...been riding a long time...but has been feeling a bit jealous of other people on the slopes and how "fluid" their riding seemed to be compared to his.  We fixed that for him with a new outfit of Ride gear.  Out with the stiffness of a 164(.5!) Old-School Custom and in with 158cm of pure Machete power with some Revolt binders!  Slime Walls...Low Rize...Pop Rods...Carbon Array3 (whaaaaat?!?!?!)...everything to make riding more comfortable and fun!  Jonathan also lost about 4 pounds of boot when he upgraded to a Jackson (Boa) to give some better feel and performance.

He also took advantage of our Ca$h for Clunkers promo we have going on, now, taking an extra 10% off the whole kit-and-kaboodle!

Have fun out there, Jonathan...enjoy the new set-up!  See you out on the slopes!

Blizzard Magnum 8.0 Carbon 2013

The blizzard Magnum Carbon 8.0 is a versatile all mountain ripper. It is wider than most carving skis, but not as wide as the big mountain powder crunchers. With a wood "flip core", and sidewall construction, this ski can hold an amazing edge on the groomers, but still be extremely playfull in the heavier stuff. Be sure to check these out on your next visit.
Blizzard says... Spaceframe 3D and carbon construction. The Flip Core 3D Rocker design also helps you glide effortlessly over off-piste terrain. The perfect combination of versatility and performance makes this ski the ideal partner in all situations.

Icelantic Shaman Skis for 2013

With its unique diamond shaped shovel and tapered tail design, The Shaman optimizes the skier’s center of gravity, allowing for an aggressive, powerful powder turn unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. The Shamans 160 mm tip rivals the biggest powder skis in floatation and stability but don’t be fooled this tool rips the groomers thanks to its aggressive sidecut and unrivaled torsional rigidity.   We think the Shaman is pretty much the only ski you need, but that’s for you to decide.
The Shaman is available at alpine. Grab a set today and you will be stoked. Perfect for all that snow dropping in the northeast and the west. Grab a set at alpineskishop.com
