Exactly. Why would I want to wear my mask when I can wear a pair of snow goggles that are vented correctly and are polarized, providing actual UV protection? Plus I could wear a warm facemask with my snow goggles instead of having some open grills blowing in air. And why would you wear paintball pants on the mountain? I have a pair of inverts and they are basically pads and mesh, good for getting hit with paintballs and keeping cool, while my ski pants are insulated and windproof, good for the cold. While I'm sure some paintball equipment originally came from skiing equipment, the two are mutually exclusive now. You look like a dork using the wrong stuff.
