This free magazine can be found in outdoor retail shops, coffee shops, hotels and in the lobby of backcountry lodges. Coast Mountain Culture Magazine is a favourite amongst those who live and breathe the mountain lifestyle because this publication helps to bridge the gap between people and mountains. This magazine doesn’t focus only focus on Whistler but highlights the west coast mountain region of North America. One of our favourite features in each issue is the stunning photography.
