December Issue of Off-Piste Magazine

backcountry skier's magazine issue 51As backcountry skiers from Alaska to New England and beyond get in the rhythm of winter, the December 2011 issue of Off-Piste Mag, Issue 51, is at the printer and scheduled to ship next week. Issue 51 includes features that range from a profile of Brian Cross – aka the Bald Bomber to confessions of a couloir junkie and the continuation of our four-part regional skier interviews. The December gear feature takes a look at  five new three-antenna avalanche beacons, and the Avalanche 101 article discusses when to dig.
