One night at Snowbird, as I stumbled across the bunny slope on the way back to my hotel from the bar, I saw something small and dark on the snow in front of me. I had to close one eye to focus, but I saw that it was Forrest's wallet. I returned it to him.
Erin, I'm the editor of Skiing and I feel your pain. I grew up reading Skiing, too. I'm sad about just doing two print issues—it's certainly the end of an era—but I think you'll find Skiing Interactive pretty cool. Not a substitute for the print mag, but something new and different. Yes, you do obtain it online, but it's not an online product. It's a downloadable file, essentially an app, that lives on your laptop and functions offline as well as on. Think of it as a great way to waste time at work. Meanwhile, look for the 2011 Gear Guide on newsstands around 10/26. And hit me anytime with questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for sticking with Skiing all these years. —Sam Bass
Hey there, I'll admit we certainly could have done a better job. Here's how it went down:
Subscribers for whom we had email addresses were notified that Skiing was ceasing publication as a print subscription magazine and were offered Skiing Interactive or SKI. The balance of subscribers received the first issue of the season from SKI with a wrap that explained that Skiing was no longer being published as a print subscription magazine and that, if they wished, Ski would be served to them for the balance of their Skiing subscription. A refund on all unserved issues is always available to our subscribers.The two issues we are going to publish in print will only be sold on the newsstand (no subscriptions). That decision was made in part because we can't mail at periodical postal rates unless you publish at least four issues a year and mailing in other postal classes would be cost prohibitive.
Not saying it's the ideal situation, but it's the situation. Feel free to email me at email@example.com with any questions.
editor, Skiing Magazine
No problem. Dialogue is good (at least that's what my wife tells me). Ski subscribers and those Skiing subscribers who have indicated that they'd rather receive Ski should have received the first Ski issue already. If not, email firstname.lastname@example.org and let our subscription folks know.
Pat, thanks for the support. Yes, right now that Dendrite clip is the frontrunner for our cover clip. I gotta say, watching it has really made sitting in my office behind my computer (and not skiing) very difficult.
To a snowy season,
