I envy the photographer’s who also covered the Rio De Janeiro carnival. I hope to cover some of the matches during 2014. If an agency is willing to look at my images.

How can we get a copy of this image to use for our promotion of this race?? Thanks

You didn’t mention the biggest “challenge” of all… batteries don’t last long at those temps.

Last season I was covering an event held in Thunder Bay, Ont. It was so cold… the skiers were coming down the hill with their faces completely covered (windchill was -35c).

As a swiss guy this is my favorite sport to shoot.
I just want to add to difficulty to stand with spikes on your ski boot on a deep blue frozen slope and the wind in your face (a killer). I usually take a thermos of tea with me just in case …
