In "Love from Above", a short movie by Julien Lange and Gpsy Feelin, Julien proves that an injury plagued season doesn't have to be a wasted season. Armed with his Facelift skis and with help from his crew, Julien ventured deeper into the incredible backcountry terrain surrounding Tignes to film new and challenging lines.
This week the temperature dropped to below freezing in the Bavarian Alps and the heavens opened leaving a blanket of snow for Amplid's ultra-eager office team to poach. Equipped with Facelifts, Ego Trip Evolutions, Milligrams and Morning Splits the team hiked up to the Summit of Spitzingsee's Rosskopf for a quick fix of pow riding.
The Milligram continues its ascent to legendary status by winning a "Selection 2017" award from French ski touring magazine "Ski Rando". The testers were blown away with the Milligram's combination of lightweight construction and killer performance.
Jonnie Merrill shows why he's earned himself a spot on Amplid's Cartel team this winter with a season edit jam packed full of big lines, insane trickery and smooth style.
Working with fellow Amplid team rider Kevin Salonius and Amplid's favourite lens man, Stephan Sutton, Finnish shredder Christian Stromberg has pieced together one hell of a season edit. Christian is one to watch this season as he returns from a season-ending injury.
Last March German freeride skiing magazine Powder-Magazin took the Facelift for a spin on the Kaunertal Glacier. They tested the ski in a full range of conditions and had some great things to say about the ski.
Amplid took the time to translate ACT Magazine's snowboard reviews into English for your reading pleasure. ACT is renowned for their testing crew's in-depth analyses of boards, so we're stoked to have won two treasured "Ace of ACT" awards for the Paradigma and the Morning Glory. Read the full reviews here.
These days German snowboarder Jonel Fricke spends most of his days hunting down powder and creative lines in the backcountry of the mountains that surround Innsbruck. By the looks of this short edit from the Bispingen Snow Dome, located south of Hamburg, Jonel's rail skills are still as sharp as ever!
Exotics Skis' Eric Edelstein knows a thing or two about testing skis, since starting his blog Exotics skis he must have tested hundreds of pairs from small and independent manufacturers. Based on the US' East Coast he experiences a huge range of conditions, so we thought what better ski to test than the Alter Ego? Here's what he had to say after months of testing.
