What is the best and worst time to wear a ski mask?
By Andrew Rafferty and Mike BohnAssociated PressA ski mask can be the most effective, or the worst.
And the best time to be wearing a ski cap?
You never know.
While it’s safe to say that a lot of ski resorts have decided that wearing a cap is no longer an appropriate time to go skiing, there are some good reasons why you might want to consider a ski helmet instead.
The first is that, for many people, a ski-mask is more comfortable than a mask.
A ski-cap can be uncomfortable to wear, and there are a lot more bumps on a ski than there are on a mask, so you might be less likely to get your head bitten off by a loose, gnarly rock.
A ski helmet also protects against frostbite and is less likely than a ski to catch fire.
In addition, a mask has less friction, and can wear for longer periods of time on the slopes.
Lastly, a skier can be more protected in an avalanche by wearing a helmet, since a ski skis faster than a snowboard.
If you’re looking for a better value, we also have a few recommendations for other skiers, skiers who want to keep their equipment out of the snow and those who want a more comfortable ski mask.
