On-Snow Demo was held at Copper Mountain February 2nd & 3rd 2014 following the Snow Show in Denver. Rick and Laurie, owners of Alpine Accessories, demoed 2014-2015 skis that will be in shop. This will allow us to give customers first hand experience on how each ski behaves in various conditions.
If you want beige long goat fur boots, Alpine Accessories is the only place you will find them. It has been about three years since the beige 810 fur boot have been available. With so many requests for the beige fur boot, our buyer decided to place an exclusive order to meet the boot makers minimum. The Regina 810 goat fur boot is lined in wool sherpa making these the warmest boots for the coldest days. These super warm boots are made in Italy and will last many winters. The apres ski boot is also available in black and white.
Alpine Accessories would like thank K2 Ski Alliance and K2 Snowboard Alliance for donating a minimum of $50,000 annually to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and other organizations on behalf of all K2 women’s product.
K2 has donated over $1,000,000 to organizations worldwide in the past decade to help women to stay healthy and active. Being sedentary and overweight increases one’s risk for this disease. Being overweight increases ones risk as fat tissue produces estrogen that is linked to cancer risk. In the winter months women can continue to be active with physical activities such as skiing and snowboarding. So follow the K2 Women’s Alliance to find out the latest news and events in skiing and snowboarding.
Then go to your local ski and snowboard shop to get personal service on K2 gear such as the K2 Superburnin skis with the pink ribbon. Many amateur women ski racers use the precise carving Superburnin as their race ski because of the smooth ride and superb edge hold with it’s titanal metal layer.

The first thing that comes to mind is the new K2 ski boots. Instead of taking a race boot and tuning it down, K2 decided to design their boots from the ground up. This gave them more options on how to design their new boots. The big difference is their Y shaped spine on the back of the boots which allows the boots to flex progressively instead of your shin hitting a brick wall like some customer say happen. And K2 is so determined to make sure you get the correct model and fit, they are not allowing their boots to be sold on-line. They selected dealers throughout the states that have qualified boot fitters and the tools to fit their boots properly. Alpine Accessories is proud to carry K2 boots.
The next thing that comes to mind is the Bolle Osmoz helmet. Even though goggles and helmets are compatible, often they do not fit together perfectly and air gaps are created. The Bolle Osmoz helmet intergrates the goggle with the helmet for a perfect fit. And the goggle is included in the price.
Many skiers travel. Some travel a lot. And they want their gear protected. High Sierra designed the Pro Series ski and boot bags for the serious traveler. Tough material, plenty of features and designed to take a beating. So good, High Sierra put a 5 year warranty on their Pro Series. And the color of the bags stand out. Take a look at the High Sierra Pro Series travel bags.
Lime green is muted by black in the new 2013-2014 gear and apparel lines. The High Sierra ski bag and boot bags are made of extra durable nylon designed to last. These ski boot bags have more compartments for your every need and telescoping handles. The skate style wheels makes it a breeze going through the airport and lodging.
K2 ski boots have arrived! K2 built their boots from scratch consulting the experts. K2 makes skis from beginner to expert levels. If you are an advanced to expert skier the K2 Charger is one of the best crusing skis out there. So now you can get K2 skis, boots, poles and a helmet with audio to complete your outfit.
To complete your outfit in black and lime check out the DC Shoe’s Torstein snowboard jacket. So be like Torstein who won a X games medal wearing this jacket. The Salomon fleece zip t-neck is a great layering piece to keep you warm, wick away moisture and the zip allows you to vent when you get warmer. The Banshee pants come in lime green as well.
Alpine Accessories is the first to receive the new 2013-2014 skis and snowboards in the Chicago area. Why? Because we place our order about 2 weeks prior to everyone else. And the first order in is the first order to be shipped. So stop by and see the new skis and snowboard equipment.
K2 realigned and improved their skis this year. It is easier for you to figure out which ski you want because the waist width is now part of the name. For instance, K2 Rictor 82Ti. This model has an 82 waist width.
But the big news from K2 is ski boots. Yes, the largest USA ski company will be offering ski boots this season. They are the first new ski boot manufacture in a very long time and only a handful of shops in the Chicago area will have the new boots. K2 wants to make sure you are fitted properly and have selected certain shops that have a reputation of good boot fitting. Stop by again. We should have the boots in August, 2013.
1)Skis should be tuned BEFORE storing for the summer. This way your bases are clean and waxed for the absolute best protection from the summer humidity.
2)Store your skis standing upright in a rack in a dry area. Do NOT store skis or boards hanging from their tips in a rack over the summer as this can harm the tips. Basements are fine if a dehumidifier is present or basement is dry.See Ski Racks
3)Bindings should be cleaned of all dirt, salt and grime with water. Ski binding heels should be in the open position. DO NOT REDUCE the tension on ski bindings.
4)Boots should be cleaned thoroughly and liners should be completely dry. Then store your boots with soles flat on a shelf or floor. Buckles should be buckled and laces should be laced. A loose fitting plastic grocery bag can be put over your boots to keep out dust.
5)NEVER store your gear in a ski or boot bag. Nylon luggage and bags are designed to keep out moisture when transporting. But they also keep in moisture when storing. This allows edges to rust and boots to mildew
Follow these guidelines and you will get extra years and better performance from your equipment.Read more storage tips
