Wishing for winter

Posted by Scott On September - 22 - 2011

This fabulous cover from SKI CANADA almost makes me wish winter would arrive soon.   The annual Buyers Guide issue (SIP) retails for $5.95, $1 more than the regular issues of the magazine.

Featuring a bold, oversized cover slash concept to highlight the primary selling feature, this cover also quatifies the benefits with the 1000+ ski stats hook, and uses the upper right real estate to push a 40th anniversary contest concept.

The cover is not shy about what it is selling.
