About the October 2012 cover:

Portrait of Sarah taken at Squaw Valley, CA (2005) by Nate Abbott. Nate says about the shot, “Over the past 12 years I had the occasion to make pictures of a very special woman. On this day—in May of 2005 at Squaw Valley—Sarah Burke and Michelle Parker were sharing laughs and trading tricks in the park. The sun was high overhead and the snow of Siberia Basin was reflecting it back on Sarah from almost 360 degrees. As with every time I met her, took pictures of her, watched her compete or dance the night away, Sarah enhanced and inspired the light to seem more brilliant. She is missed, but the memories and joy of her company will always be cherished.”
