Sugar Loaf, Michigan, was once a vibrant hub of skiing. But 10 years ago the lifts suddenly stopped spinning, and the ski area is now in a state of decay. A correspondent tracks down a legend who disappeared in the Pacific Northwest. French ski bum Bruno Compagnet stays one step ahead of the rest. A crew takes a shotgun ski trip to Idaho's Sawtooth Mountains. The February issue, on newsstands now, wraps up Volume 45.
