Now that the lifts are spinning and ski season is officially underway, it’s time for a look at the third and final issue of Volume 8 of Forecast, which is currently shipping to ski shops across Canada just in time for Christmas.

First up, the cover, which showcases Colter Hinchliffe getting his yin-yang on in the Whistler, B.C. backcountry, as shot by one of our senior photographers, Guy Fattal.

Here’s a preview of what’s inside…

Whether you’re looking for gear to protect your eyes, skin or brain, or warm your feet, fingers or face, our annual Accessory Guide, which showcases 60 of the year’s most essential products for skiing, has you covered head-to-toe.

In addition to the above, we get personal at the unsung Okanagan gem of a ski hill that is Baldy Mountain Resort, delve into the making of Zoya Lynch and Nat Segal’s beautiful and thought-provoking new film, Beyond Begbie, profile diverse figures such as Kenny The Snowblower, Isabel Coursier and Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, offer an ode to the history of Momentum Camps, and much more.
