‘Tis the season — the season for winter sports that is. Which also means the season for: dry skin, cracked lips and those infamous half-burnt ski mask faces. While we cannot help you with the first two (well our fabulous Beauty writers may have an answer) we have an answer to combat those obnoxious problems that seem to come with traditional ski masks.


Phunkshun Wear, is a winter facemask brand headquartered in Denver, Colorado. Phunkshun facemasks and balaclavas maximize warmth without sacrificing breathability or comfort, using moisture wicking materials that repel water and control odor.  Each mask is hand-sewn in the US and comes in a variety of fun colors. Not only do Phunkshun masks protect against the harshest conditions, but they also block 99% of harmful UV Rays.

Ranging in price from $14.99 – $44.99, a portion of every mask sold is donated to the High Fives Foundation, a Tahoe-Based National non-profit dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that suffer a life altering injury while pursuing their dream in the winter action sports community.

“They were super warm and versatile” Compton said. “The mesh really lets you breathe.”  

Colorado girls know the importance of staying fashionable on the slopes.

“A lot of my winter is spent on the mountain, so it’s cool to have a mask that is both fashionable and functional at the same time” McDaniel said.
