As well as reviewing over 140 pairs of skis (the number does go up every year), we're showcasing all of this season's hottest boots, clothing, clobber, gadgets and accessories, covering all the best brands, styles and budgets.
We understand that the best part about gear is not the buying part, but the using it part. So, we're combining our gear coverage with a good dosage of inspirational features to get your toes twitching: we're clocking up miles in Steamboat, Colorado, and we're plotting our Alpine excursions with a special budget carriers feature, showing readers the quickest and cheapest ways to reach their favourite resorts.
There is so much in this issue, we've had to extend the magazine by 48 pages. It's going to be a good'un!
