Now that there’s snow in them hills, it’s high time to unveil a sneak peek at the second issue of the third volume of Canada’s fun-filled ski magazine, Forecast.

We’ll begin with the cover, which features freeskiing’s man with the plan in Japan, Tatsuya Tayagaki, taking advantage of home turf in Shimamaki for his first ever cover, as shot by the always brilliant Bruno Long.

Here’s a preview of what’s inside…

HIDDEN TURN
Kade Krichko explores the tax-free, over-the-top microcosm of a ski culture sandwiched between France and Spain that is Andorra. Propped high in the Pyrenees Mountains, a homegrown Iberian park scene takes flight, while the Freeride World Tour settles in.

Also on the docket are some snow-filled exposés on Kicking Horse Mountain Resort and Valhalla Moutain Touring, insightful interviews with big mountain goddess Christina Lustenberger and style maestro Jarrad McCarl, a behind-the-scenes look at Whistler Blackcomb’s Magnetic, a review of Level 1 Productions’ Habit, a chance to win a trip for two to Whistler and a $5,000 shopping spree from MEC, and much, much more.

Look for it to make its debut at this weekend’s iF3 Festival in Montreal and the Toronto Snow Show, and on newsstands and in ski shops across Canada.
