Ski goggles are an essential piece of ski and snowboard equipment. Goggles protect your eyes by creating a seamless wrap across your face to protect your eyes and face from the sun, wind and snow. No one wants to come home from a day in the mountains with sun spots, wind burn or frostbite. Whether sitting on a chairlift or charging the backcountry, the surrounding snow reflects the sun’s rays harshly meaning your eyes and face need protection. Aside from protecting you from the elements, goggles are also your face, or image, while you are skiing so it is also important for you to select ski goggles that will give you a sense of style.
Make sure to get goggles that fit your face. The fit should be snug (not tight) and comfortable. Some models are best suited for smaller or larger faces. Mens goggles come in a variety of frame shapes, sizes and styles. Women’s specific goggles have a narrower and smaller frame for a better fit for a smaller female face. Kid’s goggles are designed for smaller faces and are usually equipped with simple lenses to improve their durability. We offer also OTG frame goggles, which are designed to have a deeper, taller and wider frame to accommodate skiers who choose to wear their prescription glasses underneath their goggles.
There are different options to accommodate the light conditions you plan on skiing in as well as the lenses that best suits how you want to see the mountain.
