A Tale of Three Tests

Jan 17, 2014

Yep this year the snowboard industry decided (or didn't) to run the three biggest retailer demo events on the same weekend. Amplid represented at Avant Premiere in La Clusaz, France; the Shops 1st Try in Landeck, Austria; and the Davos Retailer Test in Switzerland. Getting product to the test may have tested Amplid's logistical skills but it was worth the effort. Many thanks to all of the team riders and distributors who made the events happen. Here are some shots taken over the course of the events

The third and final day of the La Clusaz test was blessed with bluebird conditions and 40cm of pow.

Amplid's owner Peter Bauer was in Davos for the weekend and managed to take a few laps on one of the new boards for next winter.
