When snowboarders think of Burlington, the Burton company usually comes to mind when shopping for their boarding gear and insulated jackets and pants. I don't know about you, but I can't afford $400 jackets to keep myself warm when I go up the mountains, so I choose Alpine Shop if I need a new season replacement for my boarding needs.
They have a second floor full of merchandise on sale where I bought a snowboarding jacket for $80 cut from the original price of $250. I also scored when I found a nice pair of snowboarding pants for $95 versus $169.
Sure you have to do some scouring and the clerks are not as pretty as those who work at Burton, but for a good price on snowboarding essentials, who needs all that fluff?
