Face freezing? Grow a beard (or just buy one)

Jesus. Leonardo da Vinci. Chuck Norris. History's greatest men have sported face curtains. But we know, beards are no picnic. They frustrate women, they accumulate wayward food particles and they require more maintenance than an antique car. Most of the time, they're simply a nuisance. In cold temps, though, they sure do come in handy. Santa knows.

Essentials gloves
All gloves are not created equal. Neither are the hands that wear them. Here’s how to size up the perfect fit.

Thanks to their small size and distance from your heart, your fingers and hands are usually the first extremities to feel cold. Ironically, they’re often an afterthought for skiers, who pay relatively little attention to their gloves. Until recently, so did manufacturers, who spent more energy developing and marketing equipment and outerwear. But that’s changing. No longer the ignored step-siblings of higher-priced gear and apparel, gloves are getting their due, especially when it comes to research and design.
