As the first snow starts to fall in the European Alps and the glacial chairlifts start waking again from their summer slumber our second issue of the 2014/15 season is just about to hit shelves.
And what a way to land! Our very own Olympian hero Jenny Jones bagged the cover shot with this peach of a back three tail shot at Nine Queens where she came joint third. An absolute monster and a banging shot made all the better as we didn't actually tell her she's made it until just before it hit subscriber's doormats!
You can see her reaction as we gave her the good news below (she had the flu bless her, but look how stoked she is!):
