Another Canadian magazine, Skier, has the best writing, great photography and interesting coverage of exotic skiing places. It's easier to find at the newstand at least in the PNW. Ski Press which can be picked up free at ski shops and at ski resorts is actually not too bad for what it is.
SKI and SKIING are both pretty weak although once upon a time they were better. I usually buy their equipment quides mostly for the pictures.
POWDER has equipment write-ups but I don't recall that they actually test the skis they write about. They do have nice photos and some pretty good stories too.
