Ski mask brand Airhole was founded in 2006 by professional snowboarders Kale Stephens and Chris Brown. Mixing a bold aesthetic and technical fabrics with the all-important breathing air hole, these eye-catching designs might even capture more attention than your skills on the slopes.
Airhole's scarves are designed to cover your nose and neck for warmth. For extra coverage opt for styles that also protect your ears, or snoods that can be pulled over your head. Vivacious patterns add a striking look to these practical pieces, but if you like to have even more fun with your alpine fashion, opt for a witty photo-print design. Team with baby blue salopettes and a matching snowboard jacket for a slick look on the black diamond runs. Don't be afraid to clash prints, either; the catwalk’s current love of eccentricity applies in the snow too, so go for even more colour and personality with your choice of hat or boots.
Airhole face masks are known for their humour, so keep the rest of your outfit just as upbeat with a funny T-shirt. Thick faux fur or high-shine snoods nod to some of the latest trends, but if you prefer yours on the subtler side, opt for an understated lightweight design that will fit easily into jacket or trouser pockets once you're relaxing with an après-ski hot cocoa. Colour-block masks can still make an impact, too. Go for bright hues that pop against your ski wear and the snow, all while keeping you cosy and protected in chilly conditions.
