Issue 15 of Cooler is the first winter issue of the season, and it's a corker.

The cover star is the queen of Euro snowboarding, Anne-Flore Marxer, shot on location at her summer surf pad in Biarritz.

With Barack Obama set to regain the Whitehouse (fingers crossed!), we remember why America is great and head off for a California road trip - where else can you snowboard, ski and surf top quality waves and mountains in the same day!

We also preview the best snowboards and snowboard dvds for this coming winter, head to Russia with the Roxy girls for a skiing and snowboarding story, and find out why dynamic yoga is perfect for snowsports.

Travel features include an insider's guide to Munich and the lowdown on alternative snowsports, including snow kiting and snowbiking.

On the surf tip we feature the planet's most famous surfer Lisa Andersen and the Czech-born surfer and artist Dashenka Prochazka.

Plus, the usual blend of snow, surf, life & style. Don't miss it!
