As a sponsor of the event, the team at Amplid would like to wish all the competitors at this year's Val D'Aran Freeride Contest in Baqueira Beret the best of luck. May your lines be smooth and your landings soft!
This weekend Amplid is shipping a handful of splitboards to the Backyard in Austria's Zillertal for the first "Go Snowboard" camp of the season. Spaces are very limited so if splitboarding in the Zillertal and lounging in a beautiful renovated farmhouse sounds like your cup of tea then click here.
Other commitments and illness meant that Amplid was unable to attend this years Vintage Snowboard Days event. The event, which was held last weekend at the Living Room at Hochkoenig, drew together a big crowd of legends, oldies and young rippers for a banked slalom event to remember.
We've teamed-up with The Freeride Center Stubai, where you can now rent an Amplid Morning Split for the bargain price of 35 Euros a day. So, if you want to try before you buy and you can't make it to one of the many splitboard festivals that Amplid will be attending this winter, then here's your chance!
Last weekend the Amplid Demo Tour was at the Stubaier Gletscher with a whole quiver of test skis and snowboards. The winds were a little gusty but the pistes were in fantastic condition. Here are a few pictures from the test.

Last weekend Amplid welcomed another retailer into the ARC. Com Nou Freeride, by summer a mountain bike and outdoors hardware store and by winter a freeride focused ski shop, opened a new shop location in La Massana, Andorra. Amplid's Fernando was there to enjoy the flowing drink and canapes.
Pre-season on Europe's glaciers can be unpredictable. You might be greated with epic storms and 100mph winds, or you could luck-out and have warm sunny weather and mild temperatures. Fortunately for the Amplid demo tour "Enjoy the Glacier" event at Les Deux Alpes was blessed with the latter. Hundreds of testers flocked to the event and many of them stepped on an Amplid deck for the first time.
This weekend, October the 25th and 26th, Amplid will be at the "Enjoy The Glacier" event on the Les Deux Alpes glacier in France. So if you're in the area, get yourself and your buddies up to L2A and make use of the 23Eur ski pass and Amplid's free to use demo fleet.
While the UK is being battered by the remnants of Hurricane Gonzalo (quite possibly the coolest name for a Hurricane yet), and the majority of the Northern Hemisphere's population sob and moan about the increasingly cold weather, we snowboarders and skiers have something to be happy about. There's snow on the horizon... tons of the stuff!
Last weekend the Amplid Demo Tour was at Hintertux glacier for the official kick-off of the European Snowboard Calendar, the Hotzone Park Opening. This coming weekend the Demo Tour will be at the Kaunertal Glacier for the legendary KTO with a vast selection of skis and boards for you to try.
This weekend the Tirol's winter season kicks-off with the Hotzone Park Opening and Amplid will be there with a whole stack of 14/15 test boards. With sunny weather on the cards, a park jam packed full of jumps and jibs for all levels of rider and one of the best parties in snowboarding, you'd be a fool to miss it.
