In skiing and snowboarding, a face shot refers to the situation where the snow that is sprayed from the edge of the skis or board during a turn flies up into the face.

Face shots only occur in deep powder snow. They most frequently occur for snowboarders when doing a heelside turn. They can be dangerous due to the way they negatively impact on visibility.
