Facemask Friday: Pom Pom

02 Mar, 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.

About the Facemask:
Designed with the help of team riders Raewyn Reid and Robin Van Gyn, These slouchy neck tubes are perfect for the not-too-cold weather. The outside features dry-tec® moisture wicking fabric and the inside is lined with super breathable fabric. Protects you from the wind while also keeping your face dry. Perfect for the winter bike rides too.

Steps to win the Pom-Pom Facemask:

1.  Answer this question in your comment (make sure to use your correct email address):   Why do you need this facemask?

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

3.  This time, I’m going to handpick a winner depending on the answer. I’d like to know why you need the mask and I’ll give to the answer I like best.

4.  A winner will be announced in this blog post after midnight.  I’ll be with limited internet access this weekend so a winner might not be announced till Sunday night.

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

    I have no lower jaw or face and it really sucks on a powder day because sometimes I get powder up inside my head and then I get a brain freeze.. I was told by a man dressed as an aardvark that a face mask would solve my problem..

    I live in a snow belt in Barrie Ontario, it’s cold as heck here in the winter time and it could also give me the opportunity to advertise for you and Pom Pom 🙂 cuz I bet no one will have one and who doesn’t like to be the first I have something new to the market

    I work on mammoth mountain as a lift operator and it gets pretty cold and windy out there…yesterday we had 80mph winds at out chairlift and I only have a bandana to cover my face…it was also a snowing pretty hard so the bandana froze (like it does way too often) and I had to pull it off my face causing me to get a gnarly wind burn. This happens often. That’s why I need it 🙂

    I need a facemask to protect my facial region from all sorts of natural calamities that are likely to occur as I rip up the slopes of our local hill here in Saskatchewan.

    Ya. So I have a basic black one. Boring as all hell. Alsoooo means that my husband. can steal it. And that’s not cool. If I were to win a cute Pom Pom facemask it would guarantee I don’t look like a bore on the hills AnD that my thief of a husband would keep his mitts off it!

    Thanks for running these giveaways Shay!!

    because without it, there would be no personality and that would just make snowboarding boring, you dont want that to happen do you?

    I need a new face mask because at my home mountain we’ve been getting powder all this week, my face is getting windburned and rugged, I can’t find any facemask that’ll fit my face since I’m a girl and most companies only make sizes for men, I’d be so stoked to win this mask and would wear it for the rest if the season 🙂 love the colors of the facemask too, good luck everybody
