I havent fogged up yet with mine, suprisingly. That under armour one looks legit i might invest in one of those.

I just started snowboarding last season, and after getting a few cold sores from not covering up I went and got and Under armour cold gear hood. Best thing ever, I have a big head and it squishes my noise a bit but no big deal, doesn't fog up the goggles either.

depends what ur riding...

when im at resorts on groomed trails/parks im rocking an airhole facemask thing (like $10) its pretty much just a heavy(er) duty bandana with a litttle hole over your mouth so your goggles dont fog and it wont freeze. (i also like it cuz you can drink through it

but on pow days youre gonna want a more balaclava type thing like an underarmour hood(more like $35) which is what i use cuz your face wont get wet

hope that helped

I picked up an Arc'Teryx neck gaiter for this season. I wear it when it's damn chilly and it keeps the cold air from freezing the back of my neck when I've got my helmet on. I used it this past weekend up over my face, and it squishes my nose. So I just keep it under my nose, but pulled up into my helmet so it doesn't slip. It's warm, merino wool--so it gets damp, but your skin isn't wet or cold, and it's cozy. Balaclavas are nice, too.

Uh... I 5th this. My wife, her sis, and parents all use the UA hood thanks to me. All of them, minus the dad, are serial "I'm always cold" complainers until I got them geared up right. They love the UA hood.

Although some of us find it hard to breathe so we normally put the nose part down. As an added bonus, it is great to use under a helmet

By the way, I just picked up a couple of Ride Qi masks for the wifey and myself to wear over the hood to cover our nose since they are highly breathable. Will also use just the Qi for spring seshes.
