LJSurfa I am air skin and burn on EVERY mountain. So I cover up normally with goggles and a thermal buff.

YetiBstrd I wore a full face 3 hole mask last year in Lake Louise... Got on to a gondola, took off my goggles and there was a look of horror on the Chinese woman sat opposite me. It felt like it was one of the longest gondola rides I've ever been on!

Naturesabre I have a turtle fur thing I bought on the way up to a resort when I realized I forgot a face mask. It was pretty cheap and I like it a lot, way more than my old mask for sure. Just pull it down to your neck if it's not too windy or you're getting warm and pull it back up when needed. Low maintenance and space to breathe too.

Haha... gotta love that. I don't like the masks myself, I don't like they they look or feel so I wear airblaster balaclavas or similar from other brands, they stretch under your chin if you want to cool off, super comfortable.

BurtonAvenger Lets see keep face exposed for 15 minutes on chairlift while it's fighting 65+ mph winds or cover it. Really a no brainer.
