Along with the recent shift in the weather comes the first issue of Off-Piste Mag – The Backcountry Skier’s Magazine for the season. The October issue features the 2011 Ski Review with over 50 backcountry skis included. We also debate the merits of ski quiver, pay respects to dedicated backcountry skier Mark Nelson, profile the stereotypical Northwest skier and more. The cover image comes from Grant Gunderson.
The October issue is our 50th printed mag and marks the start of our 13th year of publication! It is hard to believe that we have been publishing the mag for so long. Thanks for all of your support in helping us make it happen. If you are not a subscriber, fuel the stoke for the upcoming ski season with a subscription or set yourself up with some of fine swag – hoodies, ball caps and voile straps.
It is also ski movie season. Be sure to keep an eye out for the various ski films headed your way the next few weeks. The Powderwhore crew will be here in Hood River on October 12 – 7pm at Dog River Coffee. Come on down and get fired up for winter. Here are few backcountry ski movies you should look into:
