It’s that time of year again. The weather is cooling, the leaves are turning, and the excitement is rising. Winter is right around the corner, and while going skiing this winter will without question look a bit different than normal during these abnormal times, go skiing we shall.

To help increase your stoke, we’re pleased to offer a preview of our first issue of this fall, which will begin arriving in ski shops across Canada and your mailboxes this week. First up, the cover, which features Blake Marshall embracing a feeling that we’re all looking forward to at Callaghan Country in Whistler, B.C., as shot by one of our senior photographers, Guy Fattal.

In addition to those two centerpieces, we also share our thoughts on what going skiing this winter will be like; turn the mic over to three underrepresented skiers in an effort to advance a conversation on how our sport can be more inclusive; offer ode to ski lockers and the origins of pole whacking; serve up a profile on the high-flying Austin Ross; give you the chance to win a pair of all-new Blackops skis in conjunction with Rossignol and Logan Pehota, and a whole lot more.
