Facemask Friday: Wrong Gear

06 Jan, 2012

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.

This Wrong Gear Warrior mask (seen on the right) is deeply inspired by the Shemagh Arabian head scarf to bring the WARRIOR out in you!!! Recommended for warmer/clear riding days when you just need to keep the chill off, the Warrior Mask is a sure hit! The Warrior Mask sits nice over the nose with no sag due to the contour fit, and features a Velcro closure at the back for easy adjusting and no bunching under your beanie.

Steps to win the Wrong Gear Facemask:
1. Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):  What’s your New Year’s Resolution for snowboarding?
2. You have till midnight tonight, January 6 to enter for this facemask.
3. All the 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 Wrong Gear for being part of Facemask Friday!

    My resolution is to keep shredding as much as possible while still being there for my wife and my new baby girl. I plan to do that by putting in the extra effort to make sure that all of their needs are taken care of before heading up to the mountain and then picking up the slack when I get home. Gotta work.

    My snowboarding new year’s resolutions are to learn how to rise switch, be able to keep up with my boyfriend (he’s very fast!) and push myself to take those jumps (the big ones!) and land them! (most important). I’d also like to plan a trip to Tahoe but in planning a wedding for 2013, it all boils down to the budget! Thanks Shay!
