    Does anybody get Mountain Gazette?

    How is it delivered? No way it's fitting in my mailbox safely.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    I subscribe....it comes via US mail in a shipping bag. The magazine is supported with cardboard if I remember correctly so it doesn't get bent or damaged in shipping.

    Our mail carrier leaves it on our front steps.

    Yeah, mine comes to the POB and they put it in a locker iirc. Your delivery person may vary.

    What do you think of it so far? I want to subscribe to support outdoor journalism/writing but it looks really pricey

    I think the format is great for photography, but a bit cumbersome for reading.

    Fair assessment.

    I dig it. I picked it up after the death of Powder.

    With the consolidation of media, and much quality content going to die in shit-ass social media; I'm all about supporting quality, focused journalism. Along with Mountain Gazette, I also picked up Adventure Journal, and kept with Ski Journal.

    ^^ I'd throw Ascent Backcountry Snow Journal & Backcountry Magazine into the mix if you're into the backcountry at all.

    They are different magazines. Backcountry Mag is a little bit more sponsored content and ads, but reads a lot like a Powder of the backcountry. Ascent is an independently produced mag about BC skiing and splitboarding with three issues per year.

    Always been a fan of High Country News. Political, but well done.

    This. They become coffee table items in season.

    More visitors pick up a TAR than our autographed photo essay on Luciano Pavarotti.

    Of course this may reflect the class of visitors we have…

    Glad to hear that you prize your copies of TAR. They are sized to fit on the back of the toilet. Ping me if you run across anything interesting.

    It's 9:30 on Friday night and I'm now going through the house with the latest issue of TAR, setting it on top of each toilet to check the sizing. In other words, it's party time here.

    I had some beers with John Fayhee a couple of times, once at the jaw, and once at some bar in Silver City. We got along like brothers.

    I miss that kinda juice.

    I know Fayhee pretty well. I'm quite familiar with many of the characters in his writings too, haha. Not sure he is still involved with the MG at all though.

    I wish these guys all the best and I'll probably pick up a few mags if I see them laying around, but it'll be tough to match the original and Fayhee versions. If they come close I'd consider subscribing. Life has been lacking in quality reading material lately.

    You made me laugh out loud before coffee.

    And back to the original topic, I love the old MG, have a stack of issues from 1977 on, but I cut some of the covers off for a wall collage years ago in Park Service housing. Dorworth's Night Driving blew my mind, btw.

    Michael Moore’s 70s MG introduced me to Dorworth, and had the first except of The Monkey Wrench Gang, and countless other great writings and photos. For some reason I never got into Sibley’s long contemplations.

    The format of Mountain Gazette is rad, and there’s some excellent topics and photography. I’m glad I subscribe. I will say I was a little concerned when the first issue I got had a long article by the editor’s wife about fires in napa or something like that…decent article but still

    Night Driving and TAR are both killer. Got to spend a fair amount of time with one of the guys who makes a cameo in Night Driving and was blown away by the contrast w today’s ‘ski culture’

    ^^ Are fires not a concern for mountain communities? We just had one in South Tahoe.

    (also the Sonoma / Napa fires were in the mountains)
    I ski 135 degree chutes switch to the road.

    I love MG, or I did the old versions. I haven't seen the new ones. I also have a stack from the mid 2000's.

    When I was young I really loved Powder but the bro brah skin thing gets old imho. MG was a great alternative with a little bit of this and a little bit of that with a lot more on the true dirt bag mountain lifestyle instead of skiings rock stars being sent on dream trips. I liked that.
