Backcountry Magazine is proud to announce its recent partnership with longtime French snow-sports journalist Mathieu Ros Medina to bring the 2022 Gear Guide to the French audience. Collaboration will feature Backcountry Magazine‘s renowned Editors’ Choice Gear Selects, plus original material in French.
The first issue will be available in mid-December and is exclusively for purchase on Backcountrymagazine.com, through its Ulule crofunding page and on select newsstands throughout France. Beyond the gear reviews, features and photos the commemorative first French edition will be a little different than the American version.
“We feel the French version needs to really reflect the tastes of our community here,” Ros says. “So, Backcountry France will feature long-form articles from the best French and European snow enthusiasts. Our way to explore mountains has shifted more and more to natural means, and I think the backcountry style of enjoying the snow has never been more relevant here in France. Regarding the format of the magazine, we believe having a (much) more compact small is beautiful format and a very nice thick, Italian paper will appeal to our target audience, who looks for a magazine they can keep on their coffee table for months. “
Backcountry hopes that there will be enough interest in the first issue to build a subscriber- and industry-supported three-issue series in 2022 featuring the best stories translated from the American edition along with original French content.
