Razors Aragon 5 is here

Prince Aragon has a new skate and it looks different than all the other models that have come before. The SL boot has a great canvas covering that gives it a shoe appearance. The frames are a ground control pro frame and his Razors wheel is 57mm. This is razors top of the line skate and it fits amazing straight out of the box. These are available today at alpine. Supporting rolling since 1995!

Razors Iain McLeaod Pro Skate is here

Well I haven't done one of these posts in a while. A new skate is up on Alpine's aggressive wall. The Razors Iain McLeod pro Model. This is a Genesys boot with Feather light frames and Undercover pro wheels. The boot is a milky grey with a black cuff and white soul plates. It also comes with Hockey laces that really pop. The skate is super light, and of course the fit is right on.
Alpine will be bringing you more skates soon, so stay tuned. Look for new and exciting things in the underground skate culture. Alpine has been supporting rolling since 1995.

Powell Peralta Re Issue Wood

4 great new decks arrived today from the vaults over at Powell Peralts. More Mountains, a new Cab, A new freestyle Mullen, and a white Mcgill. These things are going fast, so if you have been waiting for some great wall art from your youth, stop in and snatch one before they are gone. Ebay is buzzing with these things, so we know they will only increase in value.

Rome Set up of the Minute with Daniel

It's a great time to buy a snowboard. Daniel was tired of his old 07 k2 and needed some newer technology. So we got him on this sick Rome Reverb rocker. It has the latest rocker camber technology and is going to ride effortlessly down the hill. Add some new rome mob bindings and this guy is set to take on  any hill. Now is a great time to peruse Alpine Ski Shop's excellent snowboard selection.
Looks like winter is hanging around for a while, and there will be plenty of great riding through March. Snow expected again this weekend in the mountains, so get in and get yourself set up. Alpine matches all competitors prices, so before you buy online, come and see us. You'll be stoked!

Orangatang has a great new wheel. Introducing the Moronga

Wahpow! The newest wheel from Orangatang is in stock and it looks awesome. The Moronga is coming in the standard 3 hardness's and is a new 72.5 mm size. The design of this wheel is  a centerset bearing seat and a symmetrical shape to allow for complete flexibility in flipping and rotating your wheels to promote even wear. A narrow 35mm contact patch balances the wheel’s long sliding potential with a crisp and definitive hookup.
Lots of these are available today at alpine. Be the first to have em!

Set up of the Minute with Travis

OK, so it's not so much a set up as it is a sick Mcgill reissue. Travis has been collecting boards for far too long, and has been waiting for this re issue since he knew it was coming down the pike. Just back from Fayetville, he rushed over after seeing the pic on facebook and scooped up this deck. So enjoy the wall art and we'll see you for the next McGill. Lets hope they do a newer shape for you. HA!

Set up of the minute with James

James has been riding on some old 145 for the past couple of seasons. He hasn't had a new deck since he was 15 years old. So right before he went on a trip to Colorado, he got this super rad new Never Summer SL snowboard. We put on a great pair of Burton Custom Snowboard bindings, and now he is going to be riding in style with Rocker/Camber goodness from Colorado.
We also found out that James here ran the Lake Placid Iron Man and finished just a couple of minutes ahead of my wife. Congrats on doing an iron man, and good luck in your future endeavors.

Happy 50th Birthday Salba


Video featuring The amazing Salba. As I get older, I can only appreciate the way this guy kills it even more. Enjoy the 30 Second clip.

Set Up of the Minute with Maya

Maya came in with this super rad pair of roxy skis that she has had for 4 years. It was hard for her to let them go, but once she saw these k2 missconduct skis, she all but forgot about the polka dots on her old model. We paired this up with the white/green/blue jester from marker, and she has a great set of skis that will do her well out west.  So thanks, and enjoy the ride. We know you'll love these skis right after your first turn.

Burton Hooks up with Marvel for 2014


Yes, Burton has teamed up for a limited pant in the juniors line with the Mighty Avengers. This looks to be a long term deal and could replace the Star wars graphics on decks for 2015. let's hope. The pants and jackets are absolutely amazing and kids are going to be stoked. Adults will have to wait. Maybe a Mid season release? Who knows. More pics soon.
