    I have cases of them in my attic, maybe they will be worth something someday of the silverfish don't git them.
    Can someone post up the last "intro"?

    We can discuss the changing of media, online influencers, instagram, etc. which are all legit trends that are reality of today, BUT I think the real story behind this, is one of corporate shenanigans, and likely tax related. Why would you buy 14 titles only to shut them all down within 6ish months. That doesn't just happen because of the internet... https://www.foliomag.com/american-me...rts-magazines/

    Then to not even field or listen to offers for the titles from perspective buyers says its about more than declining profits for that title. They are taking a loss on the purchase to offset revenue somewhere else or some other sort of financial/tax engineering exercise. Sad...

    I look forward to Powder 2.0! There's gotta be a way to make it happen!
    Good post. Definitely changed my life. I distinctly remember picking up the 2000 photo annual at a grocery store in Truckee when I was a kid. I kept it for many years and was a subscriber until the end.

    I think you're absolutely right as to the demise of these magazines.

    As for 2.0, plenty of great options already available: Backcountry, Freeskier, Ascent Backcountry Journal, The Ski Journal, etc.

    Pocket Outdoor Media is rebooting a quarterly magazine with the main staff from Bike magazine. Not sure if anything similar might happen with the remnants of Powder.

    Breakout always was better than Surfer or Surfing for those remember. Kind of like Couloir minus the editor.

    Weak intro for the final issue. Wow, what a disappointing way to wrap it up.
    I remember a bottomless freedom...

    Backcountry has been solid lately, especially since they changed their approach a year or two ago.

    Agree to disagree. They’ve done some great long form pieces of late. The one on the history of the Sierra was really well done, for example.

    Yeah, Backcountry has been excellent. I really like those in-depth articles about iconic bc ranges. And Biff, of course.

    A(fucking)men brother. Though with the covids, there may be some dialing back on the aspirations, I for one intend on taking shitty pictures, ranting semi coherently about them and my friends and then posting them up. AMIRITE!

    Go get some!!! (utilizing proper covid protocols and logical objectives).

    Historical TRs fed my fantasy’s of Taos/Santa Fe, which proved even better IRL.

    People have tried. They won't sell it. This is a write down loss for tax purposes. Maybe next year they'll let the brand go, hopefully.

    I would usually buy 3 or 4 issues a year, typically the first of the season with gear reviews and a couple others. One usually ended up in my stocking at XMas.

    Growing up in London, Southern Ontario, very flat land indeed where the local hill advertised 180’ of vertical but I think it was more like 100, Powder mag was a connection to bigger mountains and dreams of better turns ahead.

    One article in particular kinda summed up the whole ski bum culture. I can’t recall who wrote it, but it was written by a guy who upped sticks and moved to Jackson to ski bum for a season and his challenges getting to know locals, the mountain, drinking and smoking too much and having a legendary winter. It was, to my mind at least, funny as hell and make me want to do the same.

    My one trial at ski bumming was in Banff as I finished high school in Toronto in January. Got a seat on the train from Toronto and landed in Banff three days later. Horrid ride. Seat only. Any time I tried to sleep, the conductor would push my feet off the seat across from me.

    Anyway, it was early 80’s and Banff was in the midst of a massive drought. No jobs at all. So I bussed to Kelowna and skied Big White for a week, then bussed to Vancouver, where my family had moved the previous summer. Got a job on the pipeline tank farm in Burnaby, and university....jobs, no ski bumming. But I always had an issue of Powder while at school in eastern Canada to keep me in contact with the real mountains.

    Ski bum failure here, too much of a type A personality. But Powder always kept me connected, at least a bit.

    RIP, until maybe resurrected.

    Why am I still getting spam-ish email from Powder?
