FORECAST ISSUE 4.4 PREVIEW


In case you’ve yet to score yourself a copy, we wanted to take the time to encourage you to do so by previewing the fourth and final issue of volume four of Forecast

In an effort to do something a little different, and to complement this year’s Photo Annual and his T-bar-focused feature on non-profit, community driven ski areas, the cover is a self portrait of Bruno Long at Salmo Ski Hill, B.C.

Here’s a look at what’s inside…

DEATH OF THE T-BAR
Bruno Long heads to the Kootenays’ quaintest slopes with the Treadway family to examine the past, present and future of skiing’s first mechanized mode of upward transportation.

In addition to the above, we also provide profiles on the climate consciousness of Greg Hill and the photography of Steve Shannon; a family oriented exposé on the storied history of Silver Star from one of its most legendary locals, Josh Bibby; a dive into the steep and deep at Snowfall Lodge; a behind the scenes look at the making of Blank Collective Films’ Before Blank, a chance to win Sammy Carlson’s Signature Series backpack and gloves from Dakine, and much more.
