I actually just got a copy in the mail so I am in the process of reading it.  It'll take me a few more morning poops to get through but I like it so far, especially the piece on Dave McCoy.

Wow, only 2000? That's a crime but I guess more people are interested in the upcoming season than seasons past. Skiing History is the only ski magazine I subscribe to. I get Ski along with it but really, the internet kinda killed topical magazines. Much more timely information here than in a magazine that went to print last month and distributed next month. You cannot find the kind of content you find in Skiing History online. The journalism is first rate and I find most of the stories fascinating. It is about the only publication I read cover to cover.

Seth, I haven't really seen your mag, so take my comments with a large grain of salt. What would I like to see? Really great, thoughtful, almost literary articles... certainly more than 500 words sitting on the pot type of stuff in Ski and Skiing.  Great photo repro's, old adds, etc..., interviews with some of the folks that are still living that brought classics like the Look Nevada to market, etc...  And graphically beautiful. Ski Journal is beautiful. In a nutshell, a high quality (both visual and content wise) bi-annual or quarterly. And yes, I think there's room for a great print magazine IF the content and quality are sorted out. Powder's 40th anniversary issue is a case in point. The print copy is a collectable. The on line is a glance and a headache, and I'm not even close to needing bi-focals.

I think my late friend Hans Wolf subscribed and I saw a few of his copies.

Mark, I guess you'll just have to see the magazine. That's exactly our formula.

 

Also, since we publish year-round, we can actually cover what happened at the tail end of the competition season.

 

Here's the table of contents for the last issue:

Didn't even know there was a ski history magazine, but it sounds interesting; I will subscribe. Say, are you the Seth Masia? As a hard core ski enthusiast growing up in Ohio, Ski magazine was very important to me in the 80s, and I was a big fan of your writing. If you are involved with this publication I'm sure it will be of the highest quality.
