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%.
Amplid have, for most of their 15-year history, catered to those with more refined tastes. To those who value the finer things in life. To those who don’t simply equate good value to low-cost. They are, to an extent, the connoisseur’s choice of snowboards. But who says you need to be a world-class sommelier to get completely shit faced off a bottle of Chateau Lafite...
Amplid's "Between the Lines" wants to shed light onto the unknown stories happening in the backstage area of our snowboard life. What does it take to run a snowboard company? RnD to get the product right is one important task. Marketing as in "getting emotion into the brand" is another one. But one of the most important job is "sales". Have a look at this episode and listen to Amplid's "Big Wig of Sales" Gregor Common...
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.
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...

Deep in the Chugach Mountains, a peak stands isolated from every other mountain, rising to 7,188 ft. Prominent. Iconic. The North face of this peak holds a line that is revered among steep skiers. It is listed as one of the Big Five of Valdez and holds a spot among The Fifty Classic Ski Descents of North America. Pontoon Peak.
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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
