Named after the condition of fresh snow tightly compressing (as opposed to the oft sought after soft, powdery kind), Hard Pack is a new skiing title aiming to 'uncover and promote alternative ways to think about skiing, both new and forgotten.' 

It's an ethos that translates well through the sophisticatedly designed (and almost snow-hued) pages of this niche but necessary, fashion-meets-slopes title. All pairing well with the rather cinematic, alpine photography.

The latest issue is Hard Pack's largest, making up for lost time after missing their winter publishing target. Now on the edge of summer, this magazine invites readers to retain ‘a mind of winter.’ Find inside stories of utopian mountain towns designed by architect Charlotte Perriand, the hubris of artificial snow in the age of global warming, and the ski records and photography of legendary ski jumper Leo Gasperl.

Sorry, not enough stock!
