The comment about mags is an especially good one, and no-one's brought it up yet. I'm a bit of a magazine addict, but I only buy the snowboarding annual product showcase mags, because the rest of them are more about attitude than information. Haven't bought a ski mag in a long time, but they used to have useful articles like how-to's, personal anecdotes, yadda yadda.
