Ski mask?

    I've been looking for a mask to wear on those really epic days when it's snowing sideways. Something that doesn't get wet and freeze, suffocate me, fog my goggles, doesn't look shitty, and doesn't leave skin exposed?
    Any suggestions?

    Mons Royale (New Zealand) and Phunkshun (local CO) are my go-to's on those cold/snowy days. They've got thin layer masks with SPF to block those rays as well, unless you dig the goggle tan.

    @Evanp The most important thing is to stay away from cotton and fleece. Look for synthetic materials that will wick moisture, dry quickly and be less bulky. These materials also breath well and prevent hot air from rising up and fogging your goggles. Polyester mesh and merino wool (like the Mons Royale) are great options. Armada also has a good looking one called the Scooby Neck Tube that uses Polartec and works really well.
