My sister is a terrible gift giver, and she drew my name this year. I used to (25 years ago) subscribe to a magazine of two on skiing. What is/are the best subscriptions out there? I am a course skier and ski onto 35/38 off. Thank you for helping me not get a "shirt and a tie in a box".

Waterski magazine is what I have always read.

"The Waterskier" is the USAWS publication, and by far better to keep you in touch with the competitive skiing world.

Those are good suggestions. I got "boating" a few years as well, but I could care less (other than dreaming) about somebody's 75 footer. The only 75 footer I would be interested in is "footin behind my 75 Stars".

Wakeboarding is pretty good but it seems to skew to a MUCH younger audience than I am. Haven't looked at "Wake" yet. Are there any surfing mags out yet? Not sure.

My wife got me a subscription to Boating World Magazine (claim:leader in trailer boating) a couple years back and I really like it. I was skeptical at first because I had Boating in the past and I hated it. Boating is more focused on off shore and large boats which was nothing I could relate based on my type of boating. Boating World is good. They have some great segments on gadgets, maintenance, and other stuff related to our boats. I really like WaterSki too. At first they were focused only on slalomed skiing but the last couple of years they have changed it and includes sports and boats outside of just slalom.

Waterski magazine got a facelift when Todd Ristorcelli took over as editor. He didn't reinvent the wheel but he is breathing new life into that publication. Heck, I think it's worth it just for the cool photos.

Suggest a DVD of Edged in Water. A great thing to watch with a buddy in the winter.

Of course. It's probably ONLY in print. Who wants their keys stuck together?

Yes, skidog has had some good avatars. I preferred the one 2, or 3 ago though. That gal had some lungs.
