There's a story about this in my March-April 2017 issue of Skiing History magazine, which I can't quickly locate online to share. Here is an op-ed written about it last February in Outside Magazine online.

After nearly 70 years of publishing, Skiing magazine printed its final issue this winter—ultimately consumed by its milquetoast longtime sister title, the bigger and marginally more profitable SKI magazine.

If you’re confused about the difference between SKI and Skiing magazines and why a series of publishing houses would have bothered carrying both titles for the past 20-plus years, you’re not alone. I was the editor of Skiing magazine for six years, in the early 2000s, and even I was never clear on the reasoning. But for most of its long history, Skiing offered a unique and, at times, vital take on the sport.
