Over the last 35 years it's fair to say that Amplid's Peter Bauer has mastered the art of carving. A couple of weeks ago Peter and film maker/athlete Stefan Filzmoser were granted early access to the north face of Fiss in Austria's Tirol region to do as they pleased with thousands of acres of virgin corduroy.
ACT Magazine, French purveyor of great snowboarding content, put a good number of Amplid's 18/19 collection through its rigorous board test last spring.

We've translated the reviews into English for your pleasure. Be sure to buy a copy of the magazine if you want to read the original French reviews.

This April a low-tide spring in Alaska’s coastal mountains forced Amplid’s man in AK, Ben Reynolds, to head deeper into the Chugach Mountain range in search of un-ridden faces and fresh snow. Journeying in to the backcountry with their snowmobiles, Ben and his crew discovered a world of huge mountains, enormous hanging glaciers, extreme danger and incredible potential.
If you’ve watched one of the many edits emanating from Australia’s Perisher resort this summer, you’d be excused for believing that freeriding in Australia is a little limited and almost totally flat. However, if you’re prepared to hike deeper into the backcountry then the fruits are for the picking. Antony Von Chrismar and Lachlan Humphreys recently went in search of Euro-style lines at the fabled Crags.
