Facemask Friday: Bula

01 Jul, 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.

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 Balaclava:
Bula’s micro stretch balaclava is all weather tested warm, dry and comfortable.  Features printed fabric, lightweight micro polyester with spandex core, 4-way stretch for superior comfort and fit, highly breathable; pulls moisture away from skin, brushed interior is soft, comfortable and warm, smooth exterior surface for high definition prints and rich colors, machine washable.  The print is cherry lips.

Steps to win the Bula Balaclava:

1.  Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):   What is your favorite activity in the summer?

2.  You have till midnight tonight, July 1  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 Bula for being part of Facemask Friday!
