Ski resorts throughout Utah had opened for business just in time for the holidays and the snow that came with it. Utah had it’s first big storm in early December and Brighton was the first major ski resort to open the season here in Utah back in November. Now with all of the ski resorts open and the snow creating primo terrain for skiing and snowboarding, the lifts are running on all cylinders with visitors and locals showing rather heavy crowds as they spend the holiday riding their way out of 2021 and into the New Year.

But deciding which face covering to where to adhere to Covid precautions while remaining stylish on the slopes is made easier with our suggestions of face masks and balaclavas made below. All of the masks I mention below are not clinically tested to prevent the transmission of diseases or viruses nor are they meant as suggestions to replace the N95 respirators.
