KMC 41 – The 180 Issue

Browse KMC Issues / Browsing Kootenay Mountain Culture Magazine

It’s not about going back the way we came. It’s about looking at something from every angle—spinning it, flipping it, turning it inside out—then leaping forward into the unknown.

As Kootenay Mountain Culture enters its third decade of publication, we shift our focus with this particular issue to help see things from another angle. We celebrate the work of government employees who are busy behind the scenes creating some of our most popular play places. We rethink where our food comes from and consider how to honour death differently. You might not agree with every viewpoint you encounter in this magazine, but understanding another perspective is a form of moving ahead, and that is a beautiful trick indeed.
