December 2023

What it is:

A full-service, specialty retail ski shop.


Where it is:

Located on Chestnut Street in Warwick, right off I-95’s exit 31C/Jefferson Boulevard, look for the big gondola with skis that hangs off the sign from the highway.   


What makes it a Rhody Gem?

Alpine Ski has been serving generations of winter sports enthusiasts for over 60 years, a legacy of which co-owners Fran Gould and Rick Sceery are very proud. “The best part of being at Alpine is seeing families and customers come back year after year that are growing and evolving with the sport,” says Gould. By “sport,” she’s talking about skiing, snowboarding, and après. Customers can find all sorts of equipment to shred snow, from skis and snowboards (with the option to rent) to outerwear and accessories, seasonal leases, service and repairs, and even custom boot fittings. Gould and the Alpine team personally demo all equipment to ensure customers have all the information they need, making the shop a must for both experts and beginners alike. “There’s no better satisfaction than hearing a customer say ‘Thank you for putting me in the right equipment. I had a blast – the gear was perfect for me,’” Gould professes. Follow along for special events like their Tent Sale, VIP Night, and Customer Appreciation Day; gift cards are available, too.
