Backcountry November 2014 – 20th Anniversary Issue


It’s time to celebrate—Backcountry Magazine is almost old enough to (legally) drink! Our 20th Anniversary Issue takes a look at the legends, turns and tech that have progressed our sport over two decades and more.

But before celebrating the past, contributors and editors give the scoop on the future of drones in the backcountry, the golden age of tech bindings, splitboard guides and whether or not we’re safer today.

Then, in a 50-page tribute to 100 issues of Backcountry Magazine, editors, photo editors, contributors and others weigh in on their favorite covers, show their favorite published and unpublished photos, and talk about how the sport—and the magazine—has evolved in 20 years.

And there are big names, too, from Andrew McLean sharing his top 10 favorite adventures, expeditions and descents to remembering Paul Ramer’s legacy of innovation. Read about it all in the commemorative 20th issue of Backcountry Magazine.
