We dedicated the November 2016 issue to northern journeys and snowy destinations. Banff, Alberta, is the largest town in a Canadian national park and reveals the tenuous balance between development, skiing, and nature. In Alaska, a skier hikes for her lines with an Anchorage local and follows a madman into a white cloud at the top of Thompson Pass in Valdez. In Norway, nearly 150 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Narvik is a World War II battleground turned skier's paradise. The issue closes with the deepest story of all—Cascadia. Step one: Pick up the Travel Issue (45.3) at a newsstand near you. Step two: Book the flight. Step three: Go skiing.
