With its 20th Anniversary issue, Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine celebrates two decades of distilling amazing content. Open ‘er up and let ‘er breathe.

Since our first issue rolled off the press 20 years ago, the Kootenay mountains maven’t moved much, the rivers still flow, and residents still recreate all year long. But the world has changed in so many ways. In this issue we look at our connections to the environment, culture, and to one another. And we also show a lot of amazing photos of snow connecting with skiers’ faces. We recommend you connect your hands with a copy immediately.
