Winter issue of Route 3 arrives

The latest issue of Black Press’ quarterly lifestyles magazine is now available on newsstands and in coffee shops throughout the region.

The winter 2015 issue of Route 3.

In the latest issue of Route 3, Black Press’ quarterly lifestyles magazine, you’ll read about a freeride skier living his dream, an aboriginal sculptor, the role credit unions play in our communities, winter fishing on area lakes, and how local martial artists are having a global impact.

In the cover story, Tyler Harper profiles Trace Cooke, a 20-year-old Nelson skier set to make his debut on the Freeride World Tour in January in Europe.

Joan Thompson writes about David Seven Deers, a Grand Forks sculptor and member of the Sto:lo Nation whose work references Greek myth, new archeological theories, Mayan traditions, and Vedic Brahman beliefs.

Chelsea Novak looks at the history of four local credit unions Heritage, Kootenay Savings, Nelson and District, and Grand Forks and how they give back to the communities where they operate by supporting organizations and events.

Jim Bailey takes to local waterways with guide Kerry Reed to learn about the many winter opportunities for anglers and what it takes to catch a giant rainbow or bull trout.

Finally, Betsy Kline examines how a taekwondo instructor is motivating his students and other martial arts schools to be “champions of freedom and justice” and fight poverty and oppression around the world.

Route 3 can be found on newsstands and in coffee shops throughout the region.
