Magazine Description

In this issue

High peaks often equate to high consequences, and the Formidable Issue offers a deep look into daunting mountain ranges and the impressive people who thrive when things become challenging. Inside, we explore Colorado’s northern San Juan Mountains, a range where past generations and an unstable snowpack have informed the grit anddetermination of today’s skiers. Also, Durango, Colo.’s resident vert-crushing Simmons family redefines good genes. Later, ski-mountaineering legend Ptor Spricenieks shares how his global guiding, line tagging and dissemination of a special brand of mountain enlightenment have kept him on the sport’s leading edge. Plus: lightweight, spring-focused skis, how to plan a successful multiday traverse and après beers, tasted and reviewed.
