SMP’s print magazines, Freeskier and Snowboard, distribute 840,000 copies annually to 2.5 million readers. Our websites are market leaders in skiing and snowboarding, and reach over 2 million unique skiers and snowboarders every year.
Storm Mountain Publishing was founded in 1997 by skiers who recognized that skiing was about to embark on a radical evolution and needed a new generation of media to tell that story. Freeskier magazine, SMP’s first media property, was born of the desire to highlight a youthful, passionate community of skiers and to document the lifestyle and progressive skiing that were changing the face of the sport. In 2004, SMP purchased Snowboard magazine, adding a second title to its fold.
Today, SMP has grown from a two-person start-up into a thriving media company with 25 employees, two magazines that produce a dozen issues a year, two websites, and a full multi-media team.
