Just received issue No. 2 of The Ski Journal, the self-appointed “world’s highest quality ski publication.” But indeed this glossy magazine is pretty, a bright catalogue of deep snow, mountainscapes at sunset, weird ski people, and cliff-hucking fools.
In the company’s own words, the journal is “a coffee-table quality, collectible journal of skiing’s greatest imagery, inspiring powder landscapes, and compelling personalities.”
issue No. 1
In the second issue—which hit stores last week—there are stories on French freestyle skier Candide Thovex; historic Alta; an ode to Sun Valley and the decade of love; and a gallery of images from Hank de Vré, including a classic shot I like of Scot Schmidt hitting a Squaw Valley chute in rear-entry boots. State of the art gear for their day.
The publication comes out four times a year, available by subscription and at bookstores and ski shops. www.theskijournal.com
