When photographer Hansi Heckmair returned from his latest trip to the Faroer Islands, he was speechless. Was it the weather, the solitude, the light, the people (is in "no people")? We had to look up the www, and what we found is quite simple, and can be put down in 20 points...

RIDING JAPOW

We have shipped a Test Pilot Board to Boris Anthony, who is currently spending the winter in Japan. Next to very constructive inputs he has sent us this little clip. Attention: If you didn't get to ride pow in a winter wonderland this season - you'd better not watch this, as it might be too beautiful!
It’s very simple: This was the deepest day of the season! Watch Amplid founder Peter Bauer and teamrider Stewart Orr, snorkeling through serious pow. Big shout out to BK (www.mediaproductionbk.com) for filming in such damp and cold conditions and the excellent editing job. And to Pez at Hochkeil Resort for switching on the lifts, only for us.
Fjord Lines is a web series about splitboarding in Norway´s most spectacular mountain ranges. In this series snowboarder and Native Adventures guide Tron Dyb shares some of his adventurous days in the mountains with riding of both unnamed and classic lines around Norway.
Catboarding in Georgia is an absolute must. Georgia, the country on the Black Sea, nestled between the Greater and Lesser Caucasus Mountains, gets heavy snowfalls every winter and is still quite undeveloped except for a few areas. We first developed Bakhmaro with our partner and last season moved on to a completely new region behind Bakhmaro's mountains, Adcharia. We found perfect free freeride terrain, perfect for catskiing, in a cosy little mountain hut with an unforgettable panoramic view.

BOARD MEETING

There are days (=and snow conditions) when you simply have to turn off your computer, cancel your meetings and go out for a ride. Nothing beats a good day out in the pow with the crew you work with. Two days ago was one of those days, with 40 cm of fresh and no other tracks except ours.
In snowboarding you have park kids, groomer fans, sidecountry riders, backcountry shredders, and "only a few" guys like Lauri Hilander (=yes, that is his real name!) from Finland, who have higher aims. Higher as in "above 8.000m". Follow Lauri during his prepping phase to splitboard up to Cho Oyu - and obvously ride it down along the tibetian side. Really cool and mellow vlog, reflecting Lauri's personality a 100%.
Renowned outdoor photographer Roman Königshofer's website starts like this: I live and breathe what I shoot and want the viewers of my work to emotionally connect to this vision, take them on a journey and inspire them to seek adventure for themselves. Authenticity is key in my life and work.

POWGUST 2020

Imagine riding waist deep powder in August! You thought you have to travel to the southern hemisphere to do that? Not when the weather goes crazy like this summer in the Alps. Follow the Amplid x Pally'Hi crew on their little road trip to the Hintertux Glacier…
Summers spent on the coast and winters in the mountains has its benefits, but Australian Mikey Stacey works long hours in Serfaus Fiss Ladis' busiest ski hire store to fund this lifestyle. Mikey has a plan, he's a talented artist and his work is gaining some attention, he wants to turn his hobby and God-given talent into a profession.
How would the outdoor world be without photos and videos, stimulating our day dreams and catering food for our neverending hunger for freedom. But who is taking those images? What kind of people are on the other side of the lens? How is their everyday job routine? What equipment does it require to get those beautiful shots?
May 29th, 2020. First day resort riding after the lockdown, and that with one foot of fresh powder. Kind of a historical day for some of us. Is the border open? How many people are allowed per gondola? Do we need a mask? Will lunch be served inside the restaurant? Many open questions…
If you are planning to be "on the road" for a year and want to be prepared for all weather conditions and activities, putting together the wardrobe is not so easy, especially when the storage space in the camper is very limited. We soon realized that we primarily wanted to use merino, especially since we can't wash all the time.
James Woolston is the text book definition of surfing addicted. Jim's fortunate, he's found a way to balance his addiction with everyday life. Having migrated down the Atlantic Coast over the past decade, Jim and his family now reside in Portugal, just north of Lisbon, where a subsistence, family focused lifestyle, entrepreneurial endeavors and endless hours in the water can coexist.
Stefan Filzmoser's passion for technical climbs, untouched snow and capturing the perfect shot of his escapades have made him a top contributor of stories to Pally'Hi over the years. With a recent career change and more time than ever in the mountains 2019 is looking like an exciting year for Stefan.
Pally'Hi ambassador Stefan Filzmoser travels to the Fanes Mountains in Südtirol, Italy, to scale the famous limestone slabs of the Dolomites. Its unique pitch and rock surface make the ascent of 2,968m high Neunerspitze (Sas dles Nü) a memorable climb.
Introduced to photography by his father as a child, Georg Lindacher has developed into a true talent. Still young, but with years of shooting behind him, Georg is in demand, working with credible brands on incredible projects. He's passionate about being outside and photography enables him to enjoy countless beautiful moments in nature.
Not afraid to put his mountaineering skills to use, Austrian Stefan Filzmoser, scales some the Dolomite's most spectacular peaks to access a pair of the Alps' finest couloirs. Steep, narrow and, for Stefan at least, loaded with snow, these descents look like they were worth the hours of boot packing.
Hoping to get a little early season ice climbing under their belts before winter, P'H ambassador Stefan Filzmoser and his buddy Merlin venture south to the Austrian state of Carinthia to climb Hochalmspitze, the region's tallest peak.
In February, for the second consecutive year, Pally'Hi's in-house graphics man, Mr Michi Hanauer, packed his splitboard and headed east to Romania's Carpathian mountains for an adventure. Having seen the potential on his previous visit, Michi was eager to catch Romania at its best.
Pally'Hi's Peter Bauer and handful of buddies made the drive last weekend to Laax in Switzerland to join the SuddenRush Banked Slalom. Organised by snowboarding legends Nicolas Mueller and Terje Haakonsen the Sudden Rush Banked has quickly become an unmissable event in the European Snowboard calendar.
Tim and Val, owners of the legendary Nomads Bus, an old US school bus turned hostel on wheels, spend the entire year enjoying outdoor pursuits and then cozying-up with their guests in the evening. They're the perfect ambassadors to prove that when it comes combining comfort, warmth and smelling good, Merino wool has no equal.
Hiking in the Peak District is something I never thought would appeal to me, but at 34 years old the thought of a jaunt through the countryside with spectacular scenery, questionable company and great beer at the finish line, sounded great. So I packed a waterproof jacket, some hiking boots and a few merino layers and caught a flight to Manchester, UK, to sample the Pennines' famous footpaths.
Do you know the difference between Wool Felt and Felted Wool? Didn't think so. At Pally'Hi we use Felted Wool in our Boreal Weight fabrics, here are the reasons why.
