Escarpment® Magazine prints more
With an annual circulation of over 90,000 copies, Escarpment® Magazine reaches more potential customers.
Escarpment® Magazine connects with more weekenders and visitors for two reasons:
1. We distribute to Private Ski and Golf Clubs.
With seven Private Ski Clubs along the Escarpment, our area has a unique ski culture unlike anywhere else in the world. When the snow melts our area is a mecca for golf, with numerous private and public country clubs. Members of these clubs come from urban centers throughout Southern Ontario and many own second homes in our area. With membership costs upwards of $30,000 – $40,000, these clubs attract wealthy, active families: the target market of Escarpment Magazine.
2. We distribute IN ROOM in all Blue Mountain Hotels including the Westin Trillium House..
Blue Mountain Resort is one of the largest 4-seasons tourist destinations in Ontario. Not just a ski resort, Blue Mountain also has a thriving Village with award-winning restaurants, trendy bars and pubs, and world class shopping. Blue Mountain Village businesses advertise with Escarpment Magazine because it works.
Escarpment® Magazine publishes 4 issues a year, allowing our advertisers to tailor their marketing campaign toward the seasonal demographic.
A four-season destination, Southern Georgian Bay’s demographics change with the weather. We always cater to our local population, and during the slower Spring and Autumn months we gear our content even more so to the permanent residents. The Summer and Winter months see an increase of weekenders and visitors. Escarpment® makes sure to include exciting content that highlights the activities and interests that attract visitors and weekenders to our area.
Escarpment® Magazine uses the best quality printing and paper stock
Throughout the evolution of our publication, we have experimented with different printing techniques. Ultimately, we chose to use only the best paper, ink and binding method to give our magazine the finest possible upscale presentation. Escarpment® Magazine uses a quality weight, satin-finish paper with superior ink retention, giving your ads and our photos the best possible reproduction. We then wrap our publication in a heavy UV-coated cover that is “perfect bound” with a hard spine — creating a superior product, with staying power, that readers are proud to display on their coffee tables and in their guest bedrooms.
Every issue of Escarpment® is read cover to cover
With interesting, informative articles and incredible photography, we present a magazine that is both visually stimulating and entertaining, ensuring that each issue of Escarpment® is devoured by our readers.
Strategic ad placement—connecting our readers with your business
We make sure that your ad will have the utmost impact by strategically placing it within relevant content. Escarpment® always includes a wide range of topics from fashion to epicure, home and garden, arts and events, recreation, real estate market and beyond. By placing your ad within an editorial feature that is relevant to your business, we make certain that readers who are interested in your field will see your ad.
Escarpment® Magazine is the original magazine in Southern Georgian Bay
Originally ‘Condo & Chalet’ our publication, which is now in its 27th year, began as a real estate and home magazine. Escarpment® has gone through many changes and has evolved through the years, but we have not forgotten our roots. We feature a stunning home in every issue, highlighting some of our area’s top builders, designers and trades. We also always include the most recent updates and information about the Real Estate Market with our popular feature: “Marketwatch” written by local expert, Des von Teichman, followed by numerous pages of Real Estate listings offered by the top producing agents in the region.
