Happy Sunday ♥ So the winter season is well underway and all across the Northern hemisphere, from Norway to the Alps, that also means it’s ski season. If you’ve been following me for a while you probably know how much I love to hit the slopes and that I use every single opportunity I have to snowboard – even in the summer – and since christmas is around the corner I therefore thought it would be the perfect chance to share a “Ski Goggles Guide” with you since it also could turn out to be the perfect gift to give away to someone you care about. For this post I’ve collaborated with Smartbuyglasses and I’ll be giving away a pair of the Oakley Flight Deck googles to one of my lucky readers! How exciting?! These are by far some of my favorite goggles! The giveaway will be active until December 20th and all the information on how to enter will be at the end of this post.
Since I spend a lot of my time on a snowboard I know how important it is to have the right googles, so before you pack your bags for a “white week”, you’re going to want some top notch goggles to protect your eyes on the slopes. So what are the most important things to look for when you’re choosing a pair? Whether you’re a newbie or a pro-skier, there’s a lot of choice and it can be difficult to decide which goggles to buy. Join us as we take a look at the top ski goggles to buy this season;
Ski goggles come in every color of the rainbow, but unless you’re a professional, you probably don’t want to break the bank buying goggles of varying colors for different conditions – so what’s the failsafe all-rounder? Yellow or orange lenses enhance contrast and increase definition, blocking out blue light to give you a clear view even on foggy days. The Oakley A-FRAME can be found HERE.
Inevitably, sooner or later, even the best skiers fall over. It’s all part of the fun! But you don’t want to risk smashing your goggles with your first tumble, so you want to make sure they’re up to the task. Lenses made of polycarbonate or trivex offer the best protection. The Cebe Origins can be found HERE.
The last thing you want when you’re whizzing down the slope is for your lenses to fog up, obstructing your vision and potentially putting you in danger. Some of the top models, such as the Oakley AIRBRAKE come with great snit-fogging capabilities, to ensure optimum optics all day long, no matter the weather. Find The Oakley AIRBRAKE HERE.
There’s nothing worse than ending a day on the slopes with red marks around your nose – usually the result of poor padding. The Bolle Mojo are some of the most affordable goggles on the market and with the cushy padding, you won’t be itching to take them Find the Bolle Mojo Goggles HERE.
UV Protection is not something to take lightly and whilst frequent ski goers are aware of just how much sunglight you are exposed to, for newbies this is worth noting. Aside from good quality sunscreen, the right ski goggles are probably the next most important item to avoid sunburn and ruining your ski holiday. Top on our list is the Smith I/O which reduces UV intrusion and at a mid-price point has all the basics and nifty added features of the premium price ski goggles. The Smith I/O can be found HERE.
One of the beauties of skiing is taking in the breathtaking views as you reach the top of the hills and speed down to the bottom of the piste. For maximum visual acuity, goggles which offer widescreen coverage are you best bet. The Oakley Flight Deck is our top pick. With a greater lens surface area, the spherical shape of the goggles allows you to see more above and below you and on the sides. Find the Oakley Flight Deck goggles HERE.
Smartbuyglasses have some great deals going on – so don’t miss out – be sure to check out the whole collection and shop a pair of ski goggles for yourself this season!
