It was Bob Dylan who said, “Time passes slowly up here in the mountains.” And that’s true when you’re out there on the ridge line watching the sun sink away after another fine day. But after a decade of Mountain Life here in the Coast Mountains we think it’s safe to say time also flies when you’re having fun. And it really hauls ass when you’re producing a magazine and making it up as you go.
But we made it. The Ten Year Anniversary issue of Mountain Life: Coast Mountains is starting to trickle into the Sea to Sky’s finest shops and stops. It’s our thickest issue ever and features a mix retrospective highlights, fresh perspectives and jaw-dropping imagery from surf to slough.
Whether it’s passing slowly or zipping by, we’re hoping you find this issue to be time well spent. —Feet Banks
