Best bet is to stick with the interwebz for that in-between.
This site, and sites like angrysnowboarder might be more of what you're looking for? Or check around online for others that might suit you.
Magazines anymore are mostly glossy-paged vehicles for ads. Not a whole lot of content, comparatively.
Too many ads already on tv, the web, etc that you can't really get away from. I don't like having to pay (directly) for something full of ads, like a magazine.
