Winter 2019 Tami Knight Wrapper

Each October we produce a special edition of our winter Gazette to be distributed at events around the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festivals. This year we were fortunate enough to have Tami Knight design the cover image for the wrapper. For those who weren't at the festival and want to check out Tami's work, here it is. Enjoy.

Advertising in the Gazette

Give your business a competitive advantage by advertising to dedicated mountaineers. Advertising makes consumers feel positive about your company’s commitment to its products and services. Perhaps most important is staying at the top of buyers’ minds when purchase decisions are made.

Our full colour Gazette magazine has an extensive audience across our country, throughout the U.S. and overseas. Together with notices, information and reports on special events, subjects of interest and programs offered, the Gazette provides an up-to-date resource for club members and others interested in mountaineering and climbing. Material is carefully selected to represent the wide range of interests and concerns of our membership and the mountaineering community.
