Whistler opening weekend delivers the goods
Reviews on the new TSKJ #2.1: 'Three Thumbs Up'
And from the French title, Skieur :
Translation: ?The second issue of The Ski Journal is out, and it's another success, both in form and content. A coffee table format with images worth fawning over, it's also as dense as a newspaper in weight as well as content. A large article on Shane MacConkey, a return to the madness of the 80's with mythical [director?] Greg Stump, a little on Jackson Hole, a little "east coast" skiing in Vermont, and even an alpine piece on Kitsbuhel. With contributions from experienced journalists (Jeff Galbraith, Grant Gunderson, Kris Kaiyala, etc.) formerly of Powder, Snowboarder, Skier and others, we wish a long life to this American cousin and the format that made The Surfer's Journal great...?
It?s On! Record Early Fall NW Storm

TSKJ releases issue #2.1
Incidentally, on the same day The Ski Journal shipped the new issue, nearly 30 inches of fresh snow fell in the nearby North Cascades. Coincidence. We think not.
Building upon the same high-quality that sold out our premiere issue, TSKJ #2.1 transports readers to an endless global winter. Anchored by a lengthy and revealing interview with Shane McConkey, this issue is all about ski culture. Other standout features in #2.1 include a tell-all on the making of Greg Stump?s classic Maltese Flamingo by cinematographer and long-time Stump collaborator Bruce Benedict Jackson Hole in the post-Vietnam/pre-TGR era the deep soul of Vermont hardcore hideaway Jay Peak Austria?s legendary Hahnenkamm and much more.
The Ski Journal is a publication whose time has come?a collectible journal of skiing?s greatest imagery and compelling stories. More than just another ski magazine, TSKJ is a fresh perspective for the future: The world?s highest quality ski publication. Owned and operated by skiers. In the mountains. Subscribe today before another issue sells out.
Built in the earlier part of the last century on the foundations of German-immigrant estqablished ski camps, American ski developers purchased Portillo and eventually hosted an FIS World Cup in the late 60's
The vista is utterly spectacular with a large lake (Laguna del Inca) directly in front of a stately lodge built in the 1930's. Amazing terrain, and perfect spring conditions. We all gathered to watch Pep, Andy Mahre, and Eric Pollard's new film "Idea" last night in the cine. This film is really, really good and I can see that is has the potential to changes things. Taking progressive skiing from the park all the way to the gnar of Alaska.
Another day, more sun, more turns in Chile's version of March.
Skiing is believing.
