The Nomads is the ultimate shred hostel. In 2014, with the help of a successful crowd funding campaign, owners Tim and Val started converting an old US School Bus into a hotel on wheels. Now almost four years later, the bus spends its winters chasing fresh snowfalls in mountain ranges throughout Europe with up to six guests in-tow. This spring, from the end of February until the middle of May, the Nomads bus will be based in the Arctic Circle, accommodating avid ski-tourers and splitboarders. The bus is now equipped with a fleet of Amplid touring skis and splitboards.
Amplid's Peter Bauer chats with Blister Review's Jonathan Ellsworth to talk about snowboarding, how he discovered the sport, its culture and what contributed to the sport's meteoric boom in late 80ies and 90ies. A real insight into the history of the sport and why being "anti" skiing was essential to its growth.
Late spring is the perfect time to explore the incredible mountains of the Lyngen Alps. Towering above the Fjords which separate them, these Norwegian gems hold great snow until early summer, and the long days of the Arctic Circle’s summer make them the perfect place to splitboard. Amplid friend Juergen Haider is leading an expedition to the Lyngen in late April and there are still a handful of spots available.
It's that time of year again... you know, when the internet reduces all the gear that won't sell to rock bottom prices! This year Amplid is doing things a little differently. Instead of discounting our super awesome hard goods, we're offering some next level freebies like touring skins, our Codex freeride backpack and Pally'Hi Merino base layers.

This weekend the Test To Believe Tour is at the Kaunertal Glacier in Austria's Tirol region. The snow on the glacier is in prime condition after some great early season snowfalls and with the terrain park already in operation, Kaunertal is a great place to demo every type of ski and snowboard, from park cruisers to backcountry missiles.
It's been a long four years since California had a winter worth shouting about. Friends of Amplid, Buell Steelman and Henning Schwalbe, have been making the most of the great conditions on their Amplid shreds.
Join Amplid and a large number of other ski brands this weekend (12th and 13th of March) at the Freeride Testival at Kaunertal Glacier and demo the 16/17 collection. Great conditions and beautiful blue skies are on the cards!
If there's anything that will void your Amplid product's warranty, it's riding down an active volcano. Thrill-seeker Keow wee Loong doesn't care though. Equiped with a gas mask and an UNW8, Keow scaled to the heights of Mt Bromo in Indonesia and got radical.
Between January the 29th and the 31st Amplid hosted the Blank Plank Weekender at the Backyard in the Zillertal Valley, Austria. The weekend was an opportunity for powder addicts and wannabe shapers to design and shape their dream powder shred from Amplid's Blank Plank products.
From Friday the 29th of January until Sunday the 31st Amplid will host its first Blank Plank Weekender at the Backyard in the Zillertal Austria. The weekend event will give ten people the opportunity to design, shape and shred their dream powder ski, board or splitboard.
This weekend The Rock On Snowboard Tour rolls into the hight altitude resort of Val Thorens, part of the world famous Three Valleys. For the last week the heavens have opened and delivered plenty of fresh snow, so get yourself to the Amplid tent and test some of our legendary pow boards!
