A recent launch of the limited-edition Advanced Shelter x Renan Ozturk splitboards and skis will see 100 per cent of proceeds going to Protect Our Winters (POW).
“Advanced Shelter is an experimental creative alliance that exists for the love of nature, art, and adventure,” said Advanced Shelter collaborator Jeremy K. Spencer. We’re driven by a desire to make objects that dovetail art and science to empower some of life’s greatest experiences—active pursuits outdoors—while preserving our natural playground: Earth. The gear is just one piece of it. Our adventures fuel the creation of art, film, photography, and stories as well, and we’ll see where the future takes us.”
Advanced Shelter’s new limited-edition skis and splitboards are custom built by legendary Swedish ski company Åre and longstanding Vancouver-based snowboard brand, Wired.
The high-quality planks are combined with amazing graphics that feature a painting of Meru by adventure filmmaker and conservationist Renan Ozturk. He’s won multiple awards for his other projects including being named National Geographic Adventurer of the Year in 2013.
POW was founded in 2007 by pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones and the organization has been working tirelessly to help ensure that we can continue to experience the skiing and riding like we do today.
