​VIDEO: “Un Skieur en Feu” Is A Stark Visualization of Climate Change

Leave it to the French to be dramatic about this kind of stuff… No really, Hugo Manhes’s project “Un Skier en Feu” (A Skier on Fire) is a stark and important visualization of climate change and its impact on how we play in the mountains.

These athletes have an uncanny ability to link up lines that only mountain goats would climb, and we’re always wondering how they do it. Take a peek at this year’s best drops, which are spicier than your favorite 5-star curry.

To award-winning TGR photographer Nic Alegre, countless different ingredients need to come together to create a shot that truly has the power to inspire. For him, the goal is to create the best art possible, and that requires athletes to perform, conditions to line up, and gear he can rely on, like f-stop’s camera bags. When composing a shot, his first priority is capturing light - and capturing it in a way that makes the athlete secondary to what’s going on in the environment. Ultimately,
