Mt. Baker, WA - As the days get shorter from Killington to Ketchum, The Ski Journal’s latest edition is shipping just in time. With #2.3 featuring heli-accessed pow missions off coastal Greenland; TGR film star Lynsey Dyer playing “The Manifest Game,” Patagonia’s Volcan Lanin jutting from the mist; classic corn turns down The Big Island’s Mauna Kea—and two of British Columbia’s particularly talented and hellbent film-makers, the Heath brothers from Nelson, The Ski Journal continues to provide coffee table content beyond the clutter of advertising and gear reviews.
Also included is a cutting-edge Gallerie featuring the urban works of rising-star shooter Erik Seo. Handrails, batting cages, abandoned hotels—nothing is safe. We also take a fond look back at American ski legend brand Hexcel and the honeycomb revolution circa 1975. Ski technology in the “me decade” was largely driven by a man named Hub Zemke, who had a thing for pre-preg and hexagons.
Buck Hill, Minnesota, previously only immortalized by an old Replacements song, gets the TSKJ treatment with a personal memoir by Majka Burhardt about skiing with her father, a cold war era Polish immigrant: An ode to bad pants, love and pickled herring. Thus begins The Ski Journal issue #2.3, our much-ancitipated follow-up that gets fall going like a hit from an Ohio State lineman, falling leaves and (hard) apple cider.
Like previous issues (which are now collector’s items), TSKJ #2.3 spans decades and continents, languages and hair styles.
From Blackcomb to Buck Hill, the stoke meter is rising. Make The Ski Journal an essential part of your winter habit.
