There’s more to the shots we handpick for our Photo Annual than meets the eye—like a whole lot of sweating, skinning, planning, suffering and adventuring. So this year, in addition to featuring a massive, 24-page photo gallery, we’ve profiled five of its contributing shooters. Also in the December issue, we’ve blown open the annual Apparel Guide, devoting 19 pages to the outerwear that BCM editors rely on and the latest trends and styles. Then, David Rocchio finds a lost mountain culture in Slovakia’s High Tatras, Andrew McLean visits Alaska’s Ruth Amphitheater and Lance Riek checks out Montana’s newest bc hideaways.


The Photo Annual
Twenty four pages of the best backcountry images the bigger magazines didn't print.

Dark Star
In Central Europe, on the border of Slovakia and Poland, lies a forgotten mountain range. In the High Tatras, Vysoké Tatry in Slovak, razor-edged peaks rise more than 2,000 meters out of steep glacial valleys. And while Slovakia may appear bleak and old-world, the mountain culture in the High Tatras is alive and evolving.

Apparel Guide
Out with the old and in with the new? Not quite. This year, we're reviewing our favorite time-tested skiwear, from beat-up gloves to well-loved puffies. But the Apparel Guide isn't all about the old. Alongside each of our favorite pieces of gear, we've picked a handful of next year's freshest items that may just become our new favorites.
