Our FRAMED photo feature finds a new home at the front of the book, providing you with stunning images of some of the best female snowboarders in the world within the first few pages of the issue.
We headed out to Sun Peaks Resort last March to test 30 women's specific boards that are now available in stores. If you're looking for a new board this season be sure to check out the top ten women's specific models as selected by our testers.

If you haven't seen the P.S. webisodes you are definitely missing out! This crew consisting of Robin Van Gyn, Hana Beaman and Leanne Pelosi are not only amazing female pro riders that showcase the highlights of their season in each webisode, they are also incredibly fun and when they are traveling together the antics are endless. The P.S. feature recaps their 2013 season in the form of a high school yearbook. From Goth to Geek to Glam, check out the hilarious alter egos of these ladies within these pages.
Ashley Barker is an incredible talent behind the lens of a camera. When she told us she would be heading out on a heli trip with the likes of Annie Boulanger, Laura Hadar and Helen Schettini we jumped on the opportunity to have her capture the trip for this issue. Little did we know the story that would accompany the images would be such a powerful look into the life of a snowboard photographer, and the risks they take working out in the backcountry documenting the worlds best pros. It's not just about being a talented photographer and capturing the best shots, it's staying safe and shaking off the heart pounding moments that accompany witnessing terrifying feats of nature that can potentially result in losing your friends right in front of your eyes.
