Feb. 4, 2013
The University of Minnesota athletic department launched Ski-U-Mah this week, which is the new official magazine of Gopher Athletics.
The magazine will be published bi-monthly and was developed exclusively for Minnesota stakeholders and fans. The 44-page magazine contains feature stories, photo galleries, behind-the-scenes access and exclusive content only available in Ski-U-Mah.
"These are exciting times at Minnesota," said director of athletics Norwood Teague. "We want to be as transparent as possible and look forward to using Ski-U-Mah to communicate our vision, tell our stories, recognize our supporters and take our fans inside of Gopher Athletics."
The inaugural issue contains seven feature stories, which includes in-depth profiles on new volleyball coach Hugh McCutcheon, basketball star Rachel Banham and donors Bill and Kay McReavy. The issue also takes a look at generational Gopher athletes, introduces women's soccer coach Stefanie Golan and welcomes back women's tennis coach Chuck Merzbacher.
Photo features in the premier issue depict the 2012 football season, new Siebert Field, Williams Arena, Mariucci Arena and also congratulate coaches Pam Borton, Don Lucia, J Robinson and Tubby Smith on their recent milestone wins.
The first issues also features a guest column by voice of the Gophers Mike Grimm, an aromatic interview with Gopher hockey equipment manager Lee Greseth and a one-on-one discussion with director of student-athlete affairs Peyton Owens.
In addition to providing editorial content, Ski-U-Mah will also be an important facet of communication that the athletic department will use to present key initiatives relating to facilities, finances, season tickets and other special offers.
The magazine will be distributed to select donors, but will also be available at Minnesota's on-site athletic facilities. A robust online version will also be available on http://www.GopherSports.com/SkiUMah.
