It's that time of year again when European Ski Publication Downdays gathers the public's votes to determine its "Skier of the Year". This year Cartel riders Julien Lange and Noah Albaladejo have been nominated and they need your vote!
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.
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.
Everybody at Amplid is brimming with stoke, because we can announce that French freeskier Julien Lange has joined the Cartel team. Julien's video parts in the Gpsy Feelin movies have established him as one of the most exciting and versatile skiers on the planet. Welcome to the ARC Julien!
Downdays has taken it upon itself to address the serious lack of European ski talent in this year's "Skier of the Year" nominations by creating its own poll for the title of "European Skier of the Year". Amplid's Julien Lange and Noah Albaladejo have both been included in the list of nominees and need your votes!
