Following are some of the items we will have on our booth to shop for in person. Many of our items make great Christmas gifts, so be sure to shop early!!!

USA Pro Cycling Challenge comes to Telluride! Get your Cowbells now!

USA Pro Cycling Challenge - Colorado

On August 20, 2012 the Telluride community and Alpen Schatz Boutique will welcome Olympians, World Champions and Tour de France podium winners as they begin a race through the Colorado Rocky Mountains, enduring more mountain passes than any other race in North America.
Historic Telluride
Ajax Peak and historic Main Street will provide a striking backdrop for the Stage 1 finish of the 2012 USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

Arriving into Telluride via the only FREE Gondola in the World...
a Swiss one to boot!
Referred to as “America’s Race,” the second annual USA Pro Cycling Challenge will take place August 20-26, 2012. More than 1 million spectators are expected to line the route to see if Levi Leipheimer will defend his title as winner of the 2011 USA Pro Cycling Challenge.

So get your COWBELLS now to cheer on these amazing athletes as they make their way along the gruelling mountain course and over each finish line.

Every year the New York Stock Exchange ring in
the opening ceremonies of the World Economic Summit
with Alpen Schatz Swiss Cowbells
 There is nothing like a cowbell to enhance
the excitement of an event!

Did you know that cowbells and racing have gone together for centuries, beginning in the Swiss alps during winter ski events. Some athletes say that cowbells give them that extra excitement and are less distracting than individual cheers.

Alpen Schatz will be fully stocked for on-line or in store purchases of the cowbells in anticipation of the race!

Just hangin' out in Telluride awaiting the US Pro Cyclers!

DaVinci, a beautiful, Bernese Mountain Dog puppy, has recenlty come home with us to live in Telluride, Colorado and carry on the legacy of our amazing Alpen Schatz Bernese that have passed: Schlappi and Smokie Bear (RIP). His big brother Valentino Schatz is much happier to have a sibling in the household again, following the tragic death of Smokie Bear back in February, who he so loved and admired.

DaVinci was born from a fantastic Fort Collins breeder, Stacy Temples, whose kennel is called "Wagontale". He was one of 10 in his litter. His Mom is Wagontale's Yureka "Rikki" and Dad is Berntiers Sunshine Boss- "Viggo". He was born on 3/26/2012.

Baby "Vinni" has already been hanging out at the Alpen Schatz Boutique and loving all of the attention he is getting. He is very smart and already comes when called and knows "sit", "down", "wait", and is very enthusiastic and curious about everything.

Valentino, myself and Alpen Schatz welcome you into our family, baby DaVinci! We love you, Mr. Big Paws!!!!
