2018 APPAREL GUIDE

Are your baselayers breathable for the wrong reasons? Is your partner embarrassed to be skiin' with you? A lot has changed in Nordic apparel over the last decade. And the right kit really does make skiing better. Time for an update?

THE MAGNUS OPUS

Hansi Johnson explores South Korean skier Magnus Kim's rise to the world stage. The parent of an adopted Korean boy, Hansi also questions the future of cross country skiing as a Caucasian-dominated sport. With the next two Olympics occurring in Asia, could the future of the sport be more East than West?
