Facemask Friday: True Ninza

28 Dec, 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 Mask:
High Quality Face Mask. Great for Skiing, Snowboarding, Snowmobile, and All Outdoor Winter Sports. Warm with Moisture Management and Anti-Microbial Spray. Made in USA.

Steps to win the True Ninza Facemask:

1. Make sure to leave a comment (with your correct email address) with your worst snowboard injury:

2. You have till midnight tonight, December 28 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 True Ninza for being part of Facemask Friday!

    Broke my tail bone twice! Once after sitting through a park safety class that emphasized making a lap through the park before you hit anything. I proceeded to hit the first jump right out of the class and I overshot the landing by a mile. Second time was preseason on a box in my back yard, first trick of the year… Caught my edge and tail bone hit the corner of the box. I couldn’t hardly even move for two weeks! -Nate

    First couple seasons of learning to ride-Broken wrist..landed flat on a tabletop jump I had no business even looking at. Years later, I got plowed over by a dude on a snowboard which left me with a jacked up knee and a permanent dent in my quad. And so many more…

    Luckily I haven’t broken anything other than my ego. However I face planted once but somehow ended up with only a sore bum for weeks.

    I have been lucky and haven’t broke anything. I did sprain my ankle when I lost my balance going down and skidded on my ankle to a stop :/

    Broke my tailbone jumping away from the wall on my first run down a pipe and dropped 15feet straight onto my bum. At the time I was unaware of the existence of the tailbone (being young and ignorant) and described it to my friends as having broken my arse. They though this was hilarious and spent the rest of the holiday spanking me at every unexpected opportunity. Needless to say that tiny boney nugget is now permanently flattened to the right.

    I was working as a liftie. One bulletproof morning I straightlined to the chair I was working at to set up. I reached the chair and as I was trying to stop I hit a death cookie left by the groomer and flew 15 feet to my face. I worked the day with a black eye and a concussion. At least my friends saw it and I didn’t waste a good laugh.

    Fractured Scaphoid – worst bone in your hand to break. Hard to diagnose – hard to heal. Bone marrow from hip used to repair decay caused by cyst – permanent titanium pin and 12 months in a cast.
