What makes a great magazine cover? What combination of images and words is seductive enough to make you put down your phone when the mail comes in and start reading right away? Well, you tell us.

For our May/June 2021 issue, we’re asking Active Pass and Backpacker Pass members to weigh in on our cover.

With the immense weight of Covid-19 finally starting to lift, this summer is fixing to be both an escape from the reality of pandemic life and a make-up session for the lost summer of 2020. Now is the time reacquaint ourselves with the spirit of outdoor adventure and roll out the welcome mat for new hikers to explore deeper into the wilderness.

Won’t you help us choose the most inspiring message for the summer after the pandemic?
