1971 was an interesting year. ’71 saw the first glimpse of e-mail come to life, Disney World open gates to the Magic Kingdom in Florida and so did a little ski shop in Northern Virginia. Eddie Bunch thought Northern Virginia deserved a dedicated Ski Shop for a sport that he had fallen in love with. Eddie made it easy for you to fall in love with skiing from the moment you walked inside Alpine’s doors because of his guiding belief that there is nothing greater than a day outside and gliding down the mountain. Eddie put everything he had into it, and along with the outstanding Isabelle Bunch by his side, he built up a community of ski lovers.
