Last season the owner of a local ski racing shop  gave me a copy of the November-December 2015 edition of "Skiing History". The articles are well researched and written and I found them very interesting. It also has a lot of great photos and skiing art. The magazine issue that I read covers a wide span of time linking the the present to the past. This has the effect of giving the publication a topical feel as well as paying homage to the history of our sport. Anyway, I was impressed and have subscribed to it for the upcoming season.


Is it possible to order back issues specifically the November-December 2015 issue with the great art by Elsa Beskow on the cover? I'd like to frame it but my copy has become somewhat dog-eared. Whatever the case, best wishes for further success with "Skiing History".
