Last week Julien Lange and Kevin Salonius were hanging-out with Swiss Cartel rider Alex Neurohr and filming for a video series in his home resort Vercorin. While they were there, the crew took a day off filming backcountry jumps to join Ambush rider Jeremy Rudaz for the Gangs of Thyon contest.
For the last month Amplid Cartel skier Alex Neurohr has been a busy guy. With a lack of fresh snow to play in, in his native Switzerland, Alex headed east to the Polish Freeski Open in the High Tatra Mountains in search of glory.
There are lots of good park riders. There are lots of good freeriders. There aren't so many skiers that blend these two disciplines seamlessly. Alex Neurohr is one such skier and people are starting to take notice... including his local newspaper!
It was the second week of December and four weeks of warm, sunny weather had taken their toll on the many ski resorts of the Alps. In a desparate, last-ditch attempt to secure photos for the 15/16 catalogue, Amplid's team manager invited a handful of riders to Pitztal in Austria for a weekend photoshoot.
Cartel Nationals rider Alex Neurohr was hanging-out with a handful of international pros in La Plagne, France last week for the Shred It Kevin Rolland Invitational. Kevin and his crew built an enormous step-up jump in the La Plagne backcountry and Alex was one of the riders invited to session it.
Two weeks ago Cartel National Rider Alex Neurohr was in Samoens, France for the "Bet on Orbit" contest. Alex went home with a fat cheque for winning the "Best Style" award... the award that everybody wants to win!
After Henrik Harlaut's X-Slide rap, we'd assumed the trend of skiers laying down bars on their own edits had died a death. Fortunately for us, the guys at Awone have taken the trend to its pinacle. Truely the wierdest video you'll watch today!
It seems that these days the top freeskiing talent goes to the highest bidder. At Amplid we've always been about finding and nurturing talent, giving young and motivated skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to shine. That's why we've created a new team level... the Cartel Nationals.
