There’s a difference between being cold, being cool, and being chill. And we dig into all of those in the newest issue of Mountain Life: Coast Mountains. Featuring an ultra chill Jimmy Martinello cover of Tim Emmett scaling an ice cave, this issue kicks winter off with deep pow shots, inspiring local stories, and at least one dude riding a snowmobile with a twelve gauge on his back. Find it in your favourite Sea to Sky spot and let’s get this winter going!
