The Photo Annual is all about lookin’ good. From the 20-page photo gallery to the Apparel Guide—which includes 80-plus reviews of jackets, puffies and pants—the December issue celebrates the awe-inspiring action and locations we love and the gear that gets us there.

For this year’s Apparel Guide, we’ve gone beyond just highlighting the season’s best outerwear, dividing up each category by price and highlighting our favorite bang-for-your-buck options and the crème de la crème. Among more than 80 jackets, pants, puffies, midlayers and accessories, we’ve plucked 25 Editors’ Choice options to help you figure out what’s worth going into debt over.

Also inside the December issue, contributor Megan Michelson takes a look at two skiers who’ve spent a decade spreading the telemark and backcountry gospel—Noah and Jonah Howell, the brothers behind Powderwhore Productions. Plus, contributor Ryan Stuart investigates Vancouver, B.C.’s newest backcountry zone, Martin Maier shares his story of survival above 8,000 meters, and Sasha Johnstone, age 16, skis the Grand Teton.
