Mountain Life exists to connect people from all walks of life to the magic of the mountains.
We’re an independent, niche-media group comprising a small but passionate team of individuals, driven to tell meaningful, relevant stories. We produce award-winning content that connects our readers to the fascinating world of the mountain kingdom and beyond. Thanks to intelligent design, creative art direction and stunning photography, our publications, website and events are among the most well-respected in the industry, and the key to our success as a brand.
We seek to showcase the extraordinary characters and epic adventures from Coast to Coast to Coast in Canada’s vast and varied wilderness, and all throughout the world, shining a bright light on the rich culture that the mountains represent.
Mountain Life publishes high-quality, full-colour glossy magazines created with enthusiasm and integrity, printed on post-consumer-waste recycled paper and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a non-pro fit organization that supports appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable management of the world’s forests. We carry the FSC-certification logo with pride, because we support the highest environmental standards in an industry that uses paper. Also a member of the much-respected 1% for the Planet initiative, we contribute to conservation, responsible management and community-level benefits for people near the forests that provide our paper.
For the Love of Mother Nature
In an effort to offset the carbon impact of the paper products we use to tell our stories, Mountain Life has planted more than 10,000 trees in British Columbia and Ontario, which roughly equates to almost 10 years worth of ALL the magazines we’ve ever printed.
It’s a team effort — publishers, photographers, writers, editors, bookkeepers, interns, and assorted young’uns all roll up our sleeves and get dirty for a few days of planting. The aim is to make our offering every year, so eventually we’re responsible for a surplus of trees and have planted more than we’ve cut over the years. We aim to do more, and knowing we’re actively contributing to the life and vitality of the local environment gives our team crew a renewed sense of why we do what we do.
We’ve also joined forces with PrintReleaf, a patented software platform that empowers businesses to sustain and grow our global forestry system—one print job at a time.
All of our publications are proudly printed in Canada.
