See the Mountain Better Through These Top-Rated Ski and Snowboard Goggles
Mother Nature is unpredictable, especially on the slopes. Mornings can start sunny and beautiful, but afternoons can turn dark and stormy before you know it. Wearing a pair of quality snow goggles is a crucial part of your skiing and snowboarding setup, as they can completely make or break your day.
Goggle technology is ever-changing. Lenses are becoming bigger, clearer, and more durable. Quick-change systems are pretty universal, allowing you to swap lenses to adjust to changing conditions. And with the mask mandates in place, fog-resistance is more important than ever before.
How We Chose
We had the opportunity to personally test (most of) these ski and snowboard goggles this winter. To give you a well-rounded opinion, we wore every pair in varied light conditions (from bluebird sunny to mostly cloudy) and in multiple temperature ranges (well below freezing and warmer days). We placed the most importance on lens quality and its effect on optics. After that, our priorities are chosen based on fit, ease of lens-changing, breathability and fog-resistance, and of course, style.
