Ski Goggles – How to Choose Ski Goggles and Lenses

Choosing Ski Goggles
Learning how to choose ski goggles and lenses is one of those things that can be greatly overlooked. This is surprising to me but there are heaps of people out there that base their choice of snow goggle purely on looks, which although important; isn’t going to give you the best result.

There are a number of factors that should be taken into account when choosing ski goggles, Firstly, you need to decide on the shape of the goggle lens. There are 3 main choices:
Flat- Flat and Basic
Cylindrical- Rounded with slightly improved vision
Spherical- Contoured to be optically correct (recommended)

At Snowcentral, we highly recommend using a spherical goggle lens as it provides the widest range of vision possible, making it easier for you to see what’s in front of you (Duh!)

picking a lens for your ski goggles really depends on what kind of riding you will be doing. Low alpine typically suits an amber, copper/brown, and rose type tint whereas high alpine is usually better suited to rose, yellow, and blue tints. But remember, different parts of the world face vastly different light conditions, this should be taken into account when choosing a lens.
