They said that all good things must come to an end, so it’s time to unveil the fourth and final issue of the third volume of Forecast.

The cover features Chad Sayers slashing his way through phallic snow formations at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, B.C, as shot by the brilliant Mattias Fredriksson.

Here’s a look at what’s inside…

With media pushing self-propelled backcountry like never before, hordes of North Americans are now gravitating to ski mountaineering. But are young people influenced by sexy new images of an old practice rushing to the high mountains unprepared? Matt Coté visits the sport’s birthplace, the Alps, to find out.

An exhibition of the delicate dance between light and shadows, mountains and motion, and the distinguishing eyes of the world’s best ski photographers over the past year.

Also within the issue is a journey to the backwoods of Silvertip Lodge, a look what makes Cypress Mountain, Grouse Mountain and Mount Seymour on Vancouver’s North Shore so special, profiles on Kylie Sivell and Guy Fattal, reviews and rundowns on The Big Picture’s Lite Years and Birds of Feather’s Finding The Line, a chance to win a jacket from Under Armour and Mark Abma, and more.

Look for Forecast’s Volume 3 finale to make its debut in ski shops and on newsstands across Canada next week, and we’ll see you on the slopes this winter!
