Facemask Friday: Pom Pom

18 Nov, 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 Facemask:

Fleece lined Necktube is 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):  Have you already started snowboarding this season? Yes or No.

2.  You have till midnight tonight, November 18  to enter for this facemask.

3.  All the answer comments will be written down and a 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!
