Our Pickup Point of the Month is Alpine Hut, in Seattle’s Magnolia neighborhood. They’ve been a hub of skiing and cycling for Seattle for more than 40 years. We stopped by to talk to Kyle Fisher, owner and Outdoors NW fan.
Q: What’s your favorite organized ride?
A: The RSVP. I’ve done it about five times. It’s a lot more laid back than the STP. It’s a fun ride for people who might not be super serious about cycling, but want to have a great time.
Q: What makes Alpine Hut so special?
A: The level of customer service and expertise. Everyone who works here is passionate about skiing and biking. We go out of our way to make customers, not just sales.
Q: If you can pick only one for the rest of your life – biking or skiing?
A: Impossible to choose.
Q: What do you like about Outdoors NW magazine?
A: That it is a Northwest-based publication that really focuses on the genre of skiing and cycling that people here really enjoy and partake in.
