Facemask Friday: Airhole

15 Apr, 2011


When it comes to keeping your face warm on the mountain, facemasks do the job.  On the deep powder days, they keep you from breathing in the snow.  On the sunny days, they keep you from getting burnt.  On windy days, they keep your face from going numb.  Gone are the days that you have to wear a basic black mask and look like a bank robber, now plenty of companies offer bandanas, tubes, balaclava’s in an assortment of designs and colors.

Today is the fifth Facemask Friday of many!  Facemask Friday is my new contest to give you guys rad facemasks to wear on the mountain!  Check back every Friday I’ll be giving away a facemask in a different brand/design/style.  To enter the contest, read the directions below and leave your comment by midnight tonight.  I’ll announce the winner in this post tomorrow morning.

This Airhole Facemask (seen on right) is L/XL and features Airhole’s signature design that eliminates condensation on the inside of your facemask and fogging of your goggles. The one large airhole at your mouth opening makes inhaling and exhaling easy as if you weren’t wearing a mask at all.  The airhole also acts as a hydration point, allowing you to drink through camel packs or water bottles.

Steps to win the Airhole Facemask:

1.  Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):  What has airhole done to help out the disaster in Japan?  (check out their website and you’ll see some of their latest updates regarding helping Japan)

2.  You have till midnight tonight, April 15th to enter for this facemask.

3.  All the correct answer comments will be written down and one winner will be randomly drawn from a bowl or kitchen pot ( you know like the lottery).

4.  A winner will be announced in this blog post after midnight.  I like to sleep so I will probably will pick a winner tomorrow morning.

Thanks to Airhole for being part of Facemask Friday!

    They made some blankets from polar fleece fabric and sent them to their Japanese distributors Fusion who are then donating them to help out. They have also held the Jib for Japan jib contest to raise money to help.

    Airhole used extra heavy polar fleece to make blankets that they then sent to their Japanese distributor, Fusion, for relief assistance. Airhole also sponsored the Jib for Japan Rider Relief Project at Bear Mountain on April 3, 2011.

    They made blankets from extra heavy polar fleece and shipped to Japanese distributor. Also had Job for Japan donating 100% of the proceeds.
    I hope they adjust sizing for next year. I am far from large and L/XL barely fits.
