Alpinist Magazine announced today that it has received Print Magazine's 2004 Regional Design Award for the cover of Alpinist 6. Print Magazine's five editors, two art directors, and six regional writers selected the recipients for the annual award, who were chosen from a field of more than 20,000 entries from across the country. The award, presented for Issue 6, was designed by Niki Celine and features a climber on a spectacular snow ridge on Mount Hunter in Alaska.

In April 2004, Alpinist received the Maggie Award from the Western Publication Association (WPA) in the Quarterlies/Consumer category for its winter issue (Issue 5). The March 2005 issue of Outside Magazine featured Alpinist as the subject of a seven-page article called "The Purists." In December 2004 Reinhold Messner called Alpinist "the best climbing magazine in the world today." "The Print Magazine award is a welcome nod," says Alpinist Publisher Marc Ewing. "It's quite nice to be receiving so much attention after less than two and a half years of publication. And we're only a quarterly!"
