It started in October 1993 with a ski accessory mail order catalog called Sno-ski. The offices and warehouse were located in the basement of the owners home. In the summer of 1995, Alpine Accessories started their first web site called Sno-ski.com. On-line sales quickly out sold the catalog sales so catalogs were discontinued at the end of 1996. From1997-1999, we expanded product selection to include snowboarding and other winter accessories.
In 2000, we changed our name to Alpine Accessories which reflected the products we offered. In October 2003, we opened our first store in Algonquin, IL. It was small and could hardly fit our customers. So in the summer of 2005, we moved into our current location in Lake in the Hills, IL. With the larger store, we were able to increased our product selection and quickly found us growing again. We did some remodeling in the summer of 2008, but knew we needed more room.
Our biggest expansion came in the summer of 2011when we doubled the size of our store and warehouse by expanding into the building next to us. We took down the wall between the two units and remodeled to make it look as one store. Our expansion gave us the room we need and allowed us room to start our Stand Up Paddleboard summer business. In the summer of 2015, we erected the Board House for stand up paddleboarding and sailboarding. The Board House is the largest stand up paddleboard facility in NE Illinois for rentals, lessons, and more.
