As TransWorld SNOWboarding’s November issue hits newsstands and mailboxes, snow is beginning to accumulate in the mountains across the northern hemisphere. With our 30th volume of magazines, we seek to honor the heritage that has brought us to the point, three decades deep, while looking toward the horizon for what the future holds.

This magazine truly signals the beginning of winter. Within, we look at the slight maturation of Whistler’s most notorious crew, talk with Josh Dirksen about the longevity of a 20-year snowboard career, reveal the top ten terrain parks in North America, and more.
