Whether you are flying through the trees at 20 mph, sending Corbet’s at Jackson Hole, shredding Carinthia at Mount Snow, or setting a new PR on a super-g course, ski and snowboard goggles are an absolute necessity, and not all are created equal. Some spherical lenses may offer improved peripheral vision, but they may not fit the shape of your face as well as a cylindrical shape. The best thing to do is try on a variety, and these 12 goggles represent the best on the market. Some are geared more towards style, others pure performance. Whether you are a two-planker or one, everybody needs a solid pair of goggles.
