Cool goggles can lead to great style and your own flair on the mountain, but as a critical piece of gear they are also important for both safety and comfort. Why a select few choose to cruise the mountain sporting sunglasses is beyond us, as it would easily be a recipe for tears, runny mascara, and then injury when you can’t see where the heck your going.
For most of us goggles, like gloves, are a no brainer every time we are on the mountain, and the day’s conditions determine which of our gogs we choose to wear.
Let’s face it… a blue bird day on the hill with sunny skies and great visibility requires a different set of goggles or at least lenses, than what you may use on a low light day, during night skiing, or even a day that is partly cloudy.
We asked our Cover Bunny Alexi Micinski what her favorite pair of gogs were, and then went and watched her flip around on a tramp for awhile.
Alexi’s favorite pick is the Oakley A-Frames because “they’re stylish, fit my face well, and do the job on the slopes. I can look good and feel confident while I’m shredding and I never have to worry about flat light or foggy lenses.”
