You know I was at my friends house, and I'm flipping through his mags, and im thinking whoa, these are pretty sick, tons of information, realyl long and interesting articles about travel comps people and opinions. then i go home and look at freeze and im thinking whoa its really just alot of humor and shots. i mean sure its sweet mag but you know compared to what liek Snowboarder and Transworld put out its squat. We get short stories, often filled with random stuff. I just wish that we start to get thicker and more quality publications. don't go eliminating brad though, you know just improve the general quality of the mag.
btu then again, freeze has become a transworld publication so maybe things will change... till the snow falls.
FREEZE was always a Transworld publication, just kept separate. Every once in awhile they have a great long article, which is what I like. But what I hate is stupid segments talking about who Simon Dumont wants to bang.
They need more words. Right now it's a giant picturebook.

I havent gotten freeskier since the 01-02 season, but when I did get it, it had some pretty long articles and stuff...is it still the same?
eh, I agree with Freezy, yea there were definately some good articles, but we need some more words. to me freeskier is more a glam mag. (though they did put out that sick issue paying tribute to east coast unknowns - congrants hood, grunow, legare, etc) id like to see some more 'core' stuf come out. like some awesome travel stories, not just crazy pictures, and stories that go like 'and we were all drunk sooo...' not to label freeze like that. we just need some more quality quantity.
the problem is there are not really any journalists in skiing. Just a bunch of guys who couldnt make it as skiers trying to stay in the industry cough jaquet cough. Also, the mags dont make that much money, so they cant pay writers as much as photographers, so there are a lot of photos, and small little sections that are easy to fill. Also, the majority of people in this industry dont like reading 10 page articles. That is slowly changing...
Somtimes I just like to sit back and allow all the ignorent people in this world easily ammuse me. Other times they just piss me off.
the mags like powder and the ones not focused on newschool as much as freeze have good articles
one one two.... tha one tweezy
Bitchin, truly Bitchin
i like reading small articles. I dont usually take the time to sit down and read one of the long articles. Freeze is just too short though. Transworld stuff has waaaaaaaay to many ads.
My girlfriend told me to shove my skis up my ass
powder is awsome the best artical was north British Colombia or something I read it 3 times
