It was a great hockey season this year for team ColdAvenger. They finished the regular season with a record of ten wins and four losses. In the middle of March they went into tournament time ranking 4th overall. They won the first round, three to zero, against the 5th placed team with only six players on the ColdAvenger team. The second round they challenged the 1st place team with only seven players on the CA team and the other team had eleven players. They lead the game one to zero until the last two minutes when the other teamed scored and tied it up. This took the game into overtime were neither team scored so they went in to a double overtime shootout. Team ColdAvenger sent Carl, Health and John as the shooters and they ended up scoring and winning two to one after the shootout! They had the three game series championships round and they came out on top of the defending champions, The Missoula Club. Congratulations to all of the athletes on a great season. Check out the image below of the trophy that team ColdAvenger took home and drank PBR out of.

The O’Shaugnessy Center in Whitefish, Montana was packed with powder lovers on Sunday for the Third Annual Whitefish Mountain Films. Pro skiers Julian Carr and Chris Rubens were on hand to share some stories give some love back to the community.
With great films illustrating mountain culture from a tribute to local snowboarder Aaron Robinson, to meat-hucking GoPro edits, to skiing with the President of the Republic of Georgia, the films offered diverse education and entertainment. Black Star beer provided their signature brew in their new tallboys, and a massive raffle dotted the evening with edge-of-seat fun.
Talus was well-represented, of course, and a lucky ticket holder walked away with a ColdAvenger Classic.
The secret is out! Missoula is considered one of the greatest towns in which to live. We have been saying that for years, but now the whole world knows thanks to Outside Magazine. More than 21,000 readers voted, and Missoula is ranked fifth as the best “perfect town” out of 19. Duh.
Readers took culture, the job scene, stressfree living and access to the great outdoors into account when ranking their city. Obviously not everybody can work at Talus (located in downtown Missoula) but everyone can wear a ColdAvenger Pro when hanging out. Wear one to a Griz game so you don’t freeze your mug of. Maybe someone will get a picture of you and you could grace the cover of Outside Magazine. Or perhaps you can just wear one to scare away the crowds of people who are probably flocking here because of that Outside Magazine article. Who said it could only be worn to protect from cold weather injuries? Buy one and keep it by your side at all times.
We’re proud to be from Missoula!
Spring is fast approaching, and more people are getting ready to ride their bikes to work again. (Of course, there is a large contingency of winter bike commuters–and we commend them!) While the snow is melting, some mornings it can still be quite chilly despite what the day’s forecast may predict. Don’t take the easy way out and simply put on a scarf–that just traps the condensation from your breath and creates an unpleasant damp situation around your face. Solution: a ColdAvenger Pro face mask of course!
A ColdAvenger facemask allows you to breathe evenly without creating moisture, keeping your face dry and comfortable. Plus, it is compact and small enough to pack away in your bag for when the air warms up for your ride home.
No matter the season, there is always a use for a ColdAvenger!

You know it is cold when the local ski resort is telling its twitter followers to wear a ColdAvenger. Whitefish Mountain Resort yesterday reported a temperature, without windchill, at -10.9 degrees, and yesterday was even colder–with the howling winds plummeting temperatures to 50 below. This is perfect for a ColdAvenger. The mountain reported yesterday that 375 brave souls were on the slopes; some of them more equipped for cold than others. Dr. John Sullivan Jr., creator of the ColdAvenger, was one of those well-prepared skiers yesterday, and is back up on the slopes of Whitefish Mountain Resort today! He even had time to get the snow reporters a few masks so they could safely brave the wintery conditions and protect their faces, airways and lungs from the damaging impacts of the cold.
Yogaslacker and ColdAvenger user, Andy Magness, recently participated in the grueling Arrowhead 135 Race in America’s heartland of Minnesota. Last year, he took a very respectable 15th place on the bike and this year took on a bit of a different role in this frigid race. Andy participated in this year’s race as a chaperon to his 17 year old pal and neighbor Tom Fisher. Tom was originally refused entry because of his age, and it wasn’t until Andy wrote a pleading letter to the race director promising to ride with Tom the entire race was he then allowed to race. Both carried their own supply of food, gear and water.
The Arrowhead 135 is a self-supported Ultramarathon through northern Minnesota that draws tough competitors who can choose to race via foot, ski and bicycle–their choice.
Andy recently blogged about some of the gear he used this year for the race. He did loan out some of his best gear to Tom and unfortunately for Andy, Tom really liked the ColdAvenger. So, Andy went without–how generous!
Andy Magness–”I got one of these (ColdAvenger Facemask) for the Arrowhead last year and loved it…I was glad that I was going to be wearing the mask again this year, but in the end gave it to Tom since after all I wanted him to have the best chance to make it, and that means the best gear. Besides, I wasn’t really sure how big of a difference it would make. It makes a big difference. My face and lips were frozen just riding the mile to the start line. I ended up making it to the finish with just a regular neoprene face mask and lots of vaseline and chapstick, but my face was always cold and I always wished I’d had two masks, one to lend and one to use myself. Next year Tom better have his own damn ColdAvenger.”
Yeah, you said it, Andy! Thanks for your support–sometimes seeing how bad it can be WITHOUT ColdAvenger is the best way to see how great it is WITH ColdAvenger. We’re proud of you for taking one for the team and helping Tom in this intense race.

Check out Talus CEO, John Sullivan III with Salt Lake’s big man about town, Big Buddha. This was filmed during KSTU’s product showcase from the floor of the Salt Palace during Outdoor Retailer Winter Market 2011.
We had a great time with Buddha and he taught us a valuable lesson, A Cold Avenger has many health benefits, but it’s no substitute for good oral hygiene!
