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.
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.
