Now that summer vacation has come to a close, us old timers are slaving away at work and you youngsters are back to the books, it’s time to start thinking about winter. And to help with that, we, your friendly neighbours at Forecast, are beyond excited to offer you a look at the first issue of our fifth volume, which is arriving at your local ski shop and newsstands across Canada as you read this.

The first order of business is our first female cover shot, which showcases Nat Segal holding the line at Whitecap Alpine, B.C., as photographed by the always reliable Bruno Long.

Here’s a preview of what’s inside…

It’s that joyful time of year when the mountain calls to all its creatures. And by creatures, we mean the season’s most magical skis, boots and bindings, courtesy of our animal kingdom of a Buyer’s Guide.
