Best Photo of the Year

To make pure alcohol, start with a batch of raw ingredients. Distill it, and you’ll get a more refined batch. This is how we compiled this best-of-the-year photo gallery. We started with thousands of images. Gradually we selected the shots that illustrate skiing and photography in new and different ways, along with an explanation from each photographer. Please enjoy responsibly. Then we asked you, our readers, to vote for your favorite image. Introducing the Readers' Choice award for Best Photo of the Year.

Top Five Seth Morrison Look Alikes

We asked for your Seth look-a-like photos to win two pairs of Seth Morrison Pro Model gloves. Here are our favorite five, including the winner Daniel Loots. Daniel says he had to dye his hat, borrow his girlfriend's hair extensions, and pierce his eyebrow. We are sure the Hestra gloves will be worth the effort this winter.
