Facemask Friday: Pom Pom

05 Oct, 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.

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:
The 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): When does your local mountain open?

2. You have till midnight tonight, October 5 to enter for this facemask.

3. This is lottery style, all answers will be put in the bowl and I’ll randomly select one winner to win the facemask.

4. A winner will be announced in this blog post after midnight.

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