Facemask Friday: Pom Pom

08 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 fourth 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.

About the Facemask:
Fleece lined Necktube are designed with the help of riders Raewyn Reid and Robin Van Gyn. Dry-tec® Moisture wicking fabric on the outside and breathable Polartec® fleece on the inside. Perfect for those freezing, cold days and nights.

Steps to win the Pom-Pom Facemask:

1.  Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):  How can a facemask make your day on the mountain better?

2.  You have till midnight tonight, April 8th 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 Pom-Pom for being part of Facemask Friday!

    Facemasks rock because they keep you from getting a raccoon tan.

    A facemask will keep me warm and let me avoid windburn. Also, I’ll be able to stop using that ratty old neck warmer from like 10 years ago. Thanks!

    A facemask will give me that flash of flair in my boring, fashion-deprived face.

    Facemasks are clutch so if you play hooky you don’t look like you have raccoon eyes

    Facemasks are basic on snowy, cold days, facemasks help keep your face warm & protected from windburn & powder slashes, I don’t think I could ride on powder day without one. And on sunny spring days it protects your face from the sun. 🙂
