With our October issue, we say goodbye to summer, and welcome winter with open arms, while celebrating many of our readers’ second favorite season — fall. We hope you can pick up this action-packed issue for free at one of our specialty retailer partners and pass it around for everyone to enjoy. Keep checking back here often at ElevationOutdoors.com, and heck, you can even order it through iTunes if that’s your thing.
Winter is on the way and we have the beta for where you can make those face-shot dreams come true this season. Plus, snowboarders rejoice! Coach Jeff Brier rates the best mountains for you.
What do you do while you wait for your favorite mountain to open? Invest in shiny new gear! Meet our top picks for skis, boards, boots, bindings, helmets, shells, pants and more to keep you happy on the hill.
