FORECAST ISSUE 8.2 PREVIEW


Now that the tap has turned on for winter, and snow is beginning to blanket the hills, it’s a perfect time to preview our second issue of the fall, which is currently en route to ski shops across Canada.

On the cover: the studious Tom Peiffer casting shadows at Whitecap Alpine, B.C., as shot by one of our senior photographers, Reuben Krabbe.

Here’s a look at what’s inside…

2023 OUTERWEAR GUIDE
Now that fall is in the air and winter is right around the corner, it’s time to box up your bathing suits in favour of some toastier attire. So to help you prepare to embrace the elements, we’re pleased to offer our annual look at a selection of the year’s best jackets and snow pants in our 2023 Outerwear Guide. Because bikinis and board shorts won’t cut it when you’re snorkeling in pow.

On top of that, we profile the unique journeys of unsung heroes Yu Sasaki and Adrien Grabinski, provide humourous proof as to why ski patrollers are the hottest skiers on the mountain, offer you the chance to win a pair of planks from Fischer’s all-new and revamped Ranger line of skis, and delve into the history of one of the most fabled places to ski on the planet, Whitewater Ski Resort, along with much, much more.
