Tecnica Dragon 110 Ultrafit

This boot is SICK!!! Last season Sam Cook, The president of Tecnica, came into the store and told me some good things were ahead for Tecnica. He talked about how he was changing the upper end of the line and how they would fit and ski better than ever. Well, I hear this song and dance every year, but this time it is 100% true. The dragon boot blows the old Diablo line out of the water. From fit, to looks, to weight, this boot is simply amazing. Come in and try on one of Alpine's new favorite boots today.

Ride Sigma MVMNT 09 Binder

I was organizing the warehouse yesterday, and low and behold I found these gems tucked away in the back. For all you ladies looking for a lightweight,dope looking binding, this is it. Great ratchets, and comfortable straps ,make this binding fit and feel great. Don't just buy it because it's olive and pink. That right there is a great color combination.

Razors Icons 2 skate

Hey look kids, it's a new Razors skate. How can you tell? Well it looks new doesn't it? Maybe not. It looks like every other razors skate to hit the market as of late. Sure it comes with the GC featherlight frames, and a new and improved Juggernaut liner, but it's dark grey and white. Don't get me wrong, I love Razors and they do skate amazing, but seriously with the black theme. It's getting so it's hard to see my skate wall with all the bland.
That being said, they are extremely comfortable and wicked light. If you're looking for a new skate to ask Santa for, this might be the one. Full size run available today.

Rossi Z series skis 09

Rossi's "Z" line of skis is in and they look and ski great. Oversize shapes and big sweet spots make these good in all types of snow. Shown here are the Z10,Z6, and the Z1. Each ski has different levels of VAS (Vibration Absorbing Systems) that dampens the ski at higher rates of speed while still maintaining liveliness. I am a big fan of these models after testing them last season. Stop in and see if one is right for you.

The Josh is doing some tuning.

The wintersteiger is humming as The Josh gets customers skis and decks ready for the snow. All local mountains are opening tomorrow. This is the earliest I can remember. Tuned equipment rides a lot better, so bring it in and let the man in the back make your skis and boots look like new again.

Chris Got a new Kit!!!

Big ups to the mighty Harrison and 686. this kit is little bit ridiculous. Never have I had the smarty outfit, and I must say, it's incredible. The jacket is the Rise above smarty in the grey stripes print. For pants, I went with the Smarty marker in gunmetal pinstripe. DAMN it looks good. And yes, I am wearing Mondrians on the feet. They are rad.

Burton GMP Cartel EST

There are a lot of letters and initialing going on over at Burton. So much that I get confused. 1st there's GMP- Green mountain projects. Personally I like white mountain projects, but I understand that using the word "Green" makes everyone all fuzzy and warm inside.
2nd, there is EST- which stands for (I had to go look it up) Extra sensory technology. This is only found on the binders. And it only works with the 3rd component which is-
ICS-which stands for Internal combustion syndrome. I may have made that last one up, but we all get the picture. Anyway, we were able to procure 3 pair of these new binders and they look dope on a couple if the ICS decks. Remember, if someone comes to me and says limited, I will buy it. I am a sucker like that. The Cartel is one of my favorite Burton bindings. It kind of does it all. Not too much and not too little.

Mechanics work starting early!

Alpine's mechanics are work at a feverishly high pace to knock out all the early mechanics work. Skiers and snowboarders alike are heavily anticipating a good and "Early" snow season. We haven't had this much work early in a long time. Keep it coming! The mechanics love running those machines and making those skis and snowboards run fast on the hill!

Nordica Super charger Jr Boot 09

Kids need good ski boots too. So Alpine is now offering the Nordica Super Charger Jr boot for those kids who need a little bit more power under foot. It is a standard four buckle with a great liner which has the ever popular "Fur" lined upper. Available in small sizes only and sells at $199. Great translucent shell.

Nitro "banana" Sub Pop Snowboard Sneak Peek

Nitro is entering the new "banana" Craze with its new Sub Pop Deck. This deck is an 09/10 model and is shipping as we speak. It is carrying a $420 price tag and is super slick looking. It comes with the combat core which is chemically altered to be soft underfoot and stiff at both ends. It also pivots underfoot,so it's wicked easy to get this deck up on edge.

Arbor Cadence 09 Womens deck

Arbor's premier ladies deck is the Cadence. It's versatile all mountain board for women who take park inspired skills to the whole mountain. It has a structural white erable wood top and inlaid red poplar birds. Progressive directional-twin shape,lightweight core, and softer flex supportspinn tricks,rail sessions, and slope style cruising. You need to see this board! It is absolutely beautiful.

Rossignol J Dub 09 Snowboard

Rossignol brings back the jdub yet again. Still coming with Magne traction and still with the blunted nose and tail, this deck is a park monster. This year’s holds an eerie psychedelic graphic. Rossi has held on to the J dub name even though it was named for John Jackson when he rode for Rossi. He left mid season last year to ride for Forum. Rossi kept the name Jdub and has made this the premiere deck in the freestyle part of the line.

We'll see how much longer Rossi uses Magnetraction after the marriage Of rossi,quiksilver and Mervin is now over. But for now, the J dub is a serious deck at a great price point, and it still has the world famous magne-traction.

New Urethane company..

Looks like Adam Johnson, the man behind Vibralux and the KFC moniker, is bringing a new wheel company to the table. This is actually news, since there really hasn't been a new wheel company since 4X4 3 years ago. Wheels look good, and so does the team.
