This is a nice blog about figure skating.  Several of the posts include Figures information and links I hadn't seen before.

I intended to add "Skater's Edge".

  http://www.skatersedgemag.com

which I never subscribed to, but often saw quoted.

But they've ceased publication! Now the website says they intend to publish the Skater's Edge Sourcebook, which might sort of fit your criteria.

I didn't know the ISU had a magazine, but they do and it's available online!
