Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I’ve done this but used the metal studs that are used on Jeans ( denim). Put mine on the rearmost strap give enough pull to ensure a good mask fit.
You can get the studs from Amazon.

I use these for my masks at work so next skiing trip I will bring one out with me especially as these FFP2 masks are much stiffer and tighter than the blue surgical ones.

Very interesting thread. I have been thinking of getting a 3D printer - though I would need to think to put it in the workshop.

I'm thinking of returning to the Alps for the first time since 2018. Are masks regularly worn on the slopes? I had been hoping avoiding wearing one by using chairlifts.

Yes in Austria anyway we are wearing FFP2 masks on the chairlifts as most of them have bubbles so it’s an enclosed space.
It’s fine once you get used to it, I wear mine over my Buff actually a little bit because it’s quite rough material on the ones I’ve got. There are people who don’t put it up on their face or they are a ‘nose dangler’ like we get in Britain but it’s not policed. Yet!

That looks like a good solution if they work. Better than drilling holes in your helmet or its straps!

Can you imagine the faff factor that will happen as the High Season family arrives at the bottom of the lift and parents then have to make sure all the kids have their masks on, and then take their gloves off to fit the masks on the little ones etc etc

Though don't know if kids will have to wear them?

Queue waiting times will also increase because of the above I'd surmise.

The only thing with that is will they stay on when it’s damp and snowing. Or keep pinging off. Time will tell so yes do report back! Very Happy

That’s why I like my extender idea, no interfering with the helmet or its straps, no sticking anything to the helmet. Nice and comfy on the back of the neck and simple to get rid of when all this is over (if it ever is)

Depends on how heavily they police it.
I think all this will put a lot of people with kids off going anyway unless they are really really committed and keen.

They would be no good if they later bring in the FFP2 requirement like in Austria and Germany though and also if they are going to check people (doubt it) before getting on the lifts then they look similar to ordinary ski masks some people wear (when they’ve got the helmet on you can only see the front bit) whereas with these FFP2 masks it’s glaringly obvious you’re wearing one!

Once I’d sorted the ear pulling nonsense it was actually quite nice wearing it in the gondolas. No more smelling people reeking of booze or what they ate last night!
Not sure I’d want one on when it’s warm mind but of course at the moment it’s quite cold.

@tarrantd, I've got a couple of packets of these from doing the Christmas decorations, will give it a go, might be fiddly with gloves, but at least no damage to helmets
