To make life at the mountain easier for all the family amidst a global pandemic.

Like it or not, snowboarding won’t be the same this year, just like pretty much everything else in our lives. It’s all good though, we’re learning how to deal with it and to be honest, we’re pretty good at finding ways to have fun no matter what. Our first suggestion to make things easier this season: Get your hands on some MFI facemask compatible ANON goggles!

If you didn’t know already, the face cover will become mandatory in all ski resorts in Quebec and will have to be worn everywhere on the mountain where physical distancing isn’t possible. That means inside the chalet (if allowed), during the chairlift ride, in queues, etc. So yeah… you WILL need a mask at the mountain this Winter.

The good news is that regular seasonal face covers will be tolerated by your local ski resorts. Since you don’t have to ride with a N95 or a blue surgical mask, might as well get one that has been created exclusively for snowboarding! In that department, Anon has the best face cover/goggle technology on the market, the Magnetic Facemask Integration system (MFI).

Anon has been making googles, facemasks and helmets for years and we could safely say that their magnetic integration system is one of the brand’s signature trademarks. Aside from being super comfortable, breathable, anti-fog and able to act as a covid face cover, the MFI mask is the easiest thing to put on or to remove; ideal for our new on-mountain realities. If you’ve been thinking about trying some ANON goggles, the MFI facemasks integration system alone should definitely convince you to go for a pair this Winter.


The MFI technology (Magnetic Face Mask Integration) uses magnetic connection to quickly clip your face mask to your goggles without obstructing ventilation for a gapless setup that seals out the elements while keeping your face protected and warm. To be more precise, Anon goggles have four magnets on the outside of the lower frame that interact with a small (also magnetized) frame integrated into the facemask to allow you to take it on an of in a matter of seconds and without even using your gloves.

This will come in handy this year, especially when it’s too hot to wear a face cover at all times. You’ll be able to easily take it off when you can distance physically from others, but will be able to put it back on just as quickly and not lose precious snowboarding time because you need to figure out your face cover situation every time you hit the chair lift.


More than making your life on the mountain easier with the new restrictions, it appears that using the integrated MFI mask also helps avoid fogging. hyper breathable fabrics and design of all MFI masks ensure proper evacuation of hot air away from the inside of your goggles. Less time complaining about fogged lenses, more time shredding!

Keeping the fog away while waiting at the chairlift with your mouth and nose completely covered by a regular neck warmer is something that can be hard as in order to fully cover your face, you will need to keep your face cover under your goggles, allowing air to flow into them and creating fog. Thanks to Anon’s MFI technology, we will be able to respect restrictions without any worries or concerns.
