What kind of of ski mask can you buy online that is non-itchy and that has breathing holes for mouth and nose? I’m going on a ski with some friends in a few months and I’m looking for ski mask or something similar to buy online that is non-itchy, comfortable to wear, will keep my face warm, and that has breathing holes for the mouth and nose. Please help!

I’d suggest a neoprene mask. This is the material that wet suits are made from and is non itchy and totally windproof. There are lots of styles etc that will give different amounts of coverage depending upon what you want. These will usually have a velcro closure at the back and are convenient to take off when you get off the lift if you decide to just tuck it in a pocket while you ski.
You can also consider a microfleece type of material. This is not like wool or the cheap acrylics than can be scratchy. Any fleece material will not be as windproof as neoprene but may suffice. Many times these fit like a pull over and are less convenient to take on and off.
Here is one source to look at.
