Facemask Friday: Pom Pom

10 Feb, 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.  Since I slacked and missed Facemask Friday during SIA, I’ll be giving away two facemasks today! 

Steps to win the Pom-Pom Facemask:

1.  Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):  What’s your favorite mountain to snowboard at?

2.  You have till midnight tonight, February 10 to enter for this facemask.

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

4.  A winner will be announced soon after. I’m at Mt Baker for the LBS, so it might be Sunday when I announce the winners.

Thanks to Pom-Pom for being part of Facemask Friday!

    Vail, back bowls. Usually lots of fresh powder, even days after storms. You can just cruise endlessly.
