This photo, of skier Brayden Brassey by photographer Steve Lloyd won third place in our Readers’ Choice Awards for Skiing Magazine’s Best Photo of the Year. “This is the most difficult shot I’ve ever taken. I had to guess where the skier would be in the air and point the outside flash to hit the skier and not the ice, so it didn’t wash out the deep blue color.”

The mission starts so early the next morning that it’s not even morning. We meet in the lobby of our hotel at 4 A.M. Amy the weather girl is wearing full makeup at this hour. She’s ready to work. She asks Andy the cameraman if he wants her to do an intro. Andy, barely awake, shakes his head. Jessica, meanwhile, is somehow cheerful. Read the complete story on this mission here.

Heat the iron to about 240 degrees Fahrenheit. The exact temperature doesn’t matter, but you don’t want an iron that’s too hot (the wax will smoke) or too cold (it won’t melt). Wax touched to the iron should flow off freely. Drizzle enough wax to fully cover the ski bottom when you smear it around with the iron. Do a couple of full-ski passes, spending about 20 seconds total. For more tips on waxing your skis, click here.

You don’t actually need studded winter tires. Recent research shows that many studless tires are outperforming studded in wet, dry, and icy road tests. The stud-free Icebears come in a range of sizes to fit most cars. They can handle speeds as fast as 149 miles per hour, in case you’re late for first chair. —Niall Bouzon, Assistant Photo Editor, Skiing Magazine

Given the amount of time I spend outside, I fully expect to be a leathery, wrinkled old lady. But I’m banking on this sunblock to keep me pretty for a while longer. It uses all-natural titanium dioxide to block rays, so you get protection without having to put anything creepy or unpronounceable on your face. [$16 for 4 oz.; beyondcoastal.com]  —H.H.
