    Beards are real bummer for the n/95. I could never pass a fit test with growth.

    Beards have been hijacked by the far right movement, they ain't what you want anymore. It's the reason behind the anti-mask movement: facial hair issues. True story.

    the masks I ordered are pretty burley, but make my glasses quite foggy - they've got really long strings that I think I can use with a helmet and goggles and they might be ok outside

    gotta try the OR and Buff filter systems
    I didn't believe in reincarnation when I was your age either.

    Skiing and Covid-19 masks

    I think a regular old buff is going to be the best option, most of the time.
    You donít have to wear it skiing and something you can pull up with one gloved hand is best.
    Anything complicated with strings, is going to be a problem. Lifties wonít let you on, if your mouth and nose arenít covered. Other than that, they donít care.

    But if youíre futzing with your mask and they wonít let you on and Iím behind you! Watch out!

    Womenís bathrooms will be a problem and there wonít be much free water.

    I assume he's prepared a list of 'clever' comments to say to his ski bubble/companions, said loudly enough for the person in front to hear. Lets hope he's ready for a clever retort from the mask-struggler.

    Drama in the mountains. There's nothing like it.

    A old buff is convenient but It doesn't offer much protection. A modern one with a filter might be an option.

    Keeping up my pattern of OR shilling, it looks like they designed a new buff with a filter pocket and flexible nose bridge to snug it up there. And a drawstring thing at the back. If itís the same protection as their other masks but no ear loops to negotiate with a helmet on, thatís a pretty good solution.

    Super happy with my OR masks, and am going to grab the buff as soon as it's available.

    On a more serious note, Voormi keeps sending me emails about their Everyday Mask. It looks like a nice mask, and it's wool and US made. https://voormi.com/collections/gaite...veryday-gaiter

    Mammoth COO said on Monday:
    1) A single-layer buff is not sufficient to comply with Mammoth's mask rules. Need at least a 2-layer buff, or a real mask, etc.
    2) The rules in the lift mazes will be enforced by staff---not just the honor system or mob rule.
    3) No singles line.
    (That long Zoom meeting is at https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=705778490038640 )

    Before I watched that, I had thought ski areas had been leaning towards letting skiers "self-group themselves" before riding the chair lift, so that lifties/staff could stay away from any interactions with the maze people. But nope, this sounds like lifties will indeed be interacting with maze people.
