Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Anyone bought from Alpinstore?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi,

Just looking for a new pair of skis and found them insanely cheap on aplinstore.com

£280 including bindings for a brand new pair of Line Sick Day 2020s

Has anyone ever bought from this site?

Theres plenty of bad reviews out there but some say they got the goods. Im half tempted to just buy them on my credit card and see if they turn up, then Im covered if its a scam or they send the wrong items etc.

Anyone with any experience of them?

Looks like a web only shop, but at least there are contact details The initial low prices appear to be excluding tax, as when you click on an item on the homepage, the price increases 20% when you view the item.

Yes,bought some boots off them. Good value, no problems. But, be prepared to wait as they took 3-4 weeks to arrive ( from Spain bizarrely). My brother also bought boots but had to send them back for a larger replacement, again no problems apart from the return postage he had to pay himself. He was also pleased with the purchase

Cheers, I think I might give them a go although I need them for the 14th of Dec so maybe cutting it fine

Just an update, I ordered them last Thursday and they arrived on Monday, the price did go up about £50 from the first time I looked but still £330 including bindings was a fantastic price.

They came from France rather than Spain so I guess they're just drop shipping

I did order them with bindings fitted which they didnt do however but thats not a huge issue.

So if anyone else is reading this, Id give them a go

@medlington, I took a calculated risk ordering by credit card an in stock airbag pack from them on Sunday at what seems to be a ‘too good to be true’ price but not heard anything back other than received confirmation of payment. The item now shows out of stock following my order. Did you receive any communication from them at all in between order confirmation and you receive good the goods? I have a DHL tracking number but I suspect this is allocated automatically at time of order and it’s yet to be collected. I have tried to call but the phone number does not work or at least not from the UK. I don’t think it’s a scam - rather they may be pre-selling stuff that they don’t actually stock.

I got 3 emails from them the same day, just usual order confirmations and one from systempay confirming the payment.

I then got 1 from DHL the next day saying my parcel would be delivered by the Monday, also received a text message saying the same and then they turned up bang on time. Must say I was very shocked after reading the reviews but like you had bought on my credit card so was prepared to make a claim.

I imagine they must be a dropship company who never actually have the stock and luckily for me they're a brand new set of this years skis so I guess the supplier will have had loads.

If I were you Id send an email and then if you dont hear anything back in a week or so Id start the claim with my card company and you can at least show them youve been trying to contact them without reply which should be enough to cancel the payment

As it happens After posting this morning I received an email response from them today advising it will be shipped tomorrow. This is good as I now have intent of delivery which I can show CC company if it doesn’t arrive. I saw this as a punt and hopefully all will be good. My worry was having to wait and then findIng it difficult to source a model quickly in the U.K. to arrive before 19 December.

Just for the record, I bought skis from them. Delivered within 5 days, set up correctly, no problems.

I can happily report I received my 'too good to be true' airbag today and will definitely buy from them again in the future when not in urgent need. Items seem to ship from Germany by DHL and was able top track its week long journey.
