    Ski & Snow Goggles

    Goggles for skiing and snowboarding are a crucial component of your equipment. You're in trouble if you can't see where you're going! With hundreds of goggles available online, Auski can assist you in locating the snow goggle that best meets your needs and price range. Our top-notch snow goggles will shield your eyes from the elements and enhance your mountain vision.

    To make sure we have something for everyone, we provide a wide variety of goggles in both sizes and styles. We promise you'll find the ideal ski goggle that matches your style, fit, and price range with our selection of brands, which includes Oakley, Dragon, Anon, and many more.

    Wearing proper goggles will protect your eyes and face while preserving your ability to see clearly in both bright and cloudy conditions. We have a wide variety of high-quality snowboard goggles that adhere to Australia's tightest safety regulations. Depending on their pricing, goggles come with different levels of frame and lens technology. A plain grey lens and no replacement lens alternatives are often included with inexpensive goggles, while contrast-enhancing lenses and frequently a spare lens are included with more expensive models.

    Recent advances in goggle lens technology have replaced conventional grey lenses with innovations like Oakley's Prizm, Anon's Perceive, Dragon's Lumalens, and Smith's ChromaPop. Contrast-enhancing technologies don't merely reduce the amount of light that enters the lens; rather, they filter it, boosting contrast and revealing more detail, which is especially visible in low light. These technologies also make lenses more adaptable, so one lens may be used in most situations without the need to change it throughout the day.

    The majority of high-end eyewear like Smith, Anon, and Dragon come with an extra lens. The majority of the extra lenses that are provided are low-light-specific, meaning that they perform best in flat or dim lighting. Low-light lenses let in more light, enhancing your surroundings and the snow. If you only use one lens for most situations, make sure its VLT is between 10 and 25 percent. This will prevent the lens from being excessively dark in overcast weather or too brilliant in the light.

    Why are Snow Goggles important?

    People who are learning to snowboard or ski and are anticipating their first day on the slopes frequently ask if they should get snow goggles. Consider the potential expense you could personally pay by not wearing the proper goggles when you're descending the slopes instead of what they will cost you. It doesn't matter if you don't have the greatest ski goggles on the market; your eyes still need to be shielded from UV and UVB radiation. Nobody wants to have snow blindness, therefore it's important to keep your eyes from being exposed to the bright light present on the slopes. All skiers and snowboarders must contend with the sun's glare, but once you purchase ski goggles with dark lens tints, you won't have to worry as much about it. Any seasoned snowboarder or ski pro will tell you how much the top carvers rely on contrast when you ask them whether it's a crucial element to look out for in goggles. Your lenses can help you notice dips in the slope before you ski over them because different colour tints are better suited to varied weather conditions, so it's good obtaining a sense of the circumstances you will probably encounter. The best snow goggles not only have vents that keep them from fogging up, but they also have foam padding that will shield your eyes from snow and wind as you're descending.

    Ski & Snow Goggle Brands

    Smith, Anon, Giro, Oakley, and Dragon are some of the well-known brands of snow goggles. There is a wide variety of lens shapes, lens colours, and frames available among these well-known brands. While Oakley has a GPS-enabled goggle with a digital readout on the lens, Anon uses magnets in a couple of their models for their lenses and MFI face masks. Dragon also makes transition goggles, but how well they fit your face is what matters most. The right fit will matter more than any feature because if cold air enters through a gap near to your nose, no other features will matter.

    Our selection of Oakley goggles are fog-resistant, all-day comfortable, come in a wide range of Prizm lenses. Oakley also produce rimless goggles with excellent peripheral vision. All snow goggles found in-store are offered online in a variety of colours and sizes.

    Choosing The Right Goggles For Skiing Or Snowboarding

    A variety of built-in features, such as lumalens, iridium, red ion, and unisex goggle lenses for all ages, are included in high-quality ski and snowboard goggles. With replacement and backup lenses available, high-quality snow goggles are built to last a lifetime. As Australia's biggest outdoor and adventure retailer, Auski collaborates with top manufacturers to offer products from top manufacturers including Dragon, Oakley, Giro, Smith, and others.

    Snow Goggles, Which One to Pick?

    Although many snow goggles have a similar appearance, there are many functional differences that must be taken into account when selecting the best pair for a day spent skiing. Online, each product listing offers more detailed information, but in general, you should think about the following:

    • Comfort - Yes, comfort—or how well the goggles fit your face—is at the top of the list. It should be snug but not overly so. The goggles should be worn all day without your awareness of them so you may concentrate on your snowboarding and skiing.
    • UV protection - Because UV light poses a serious threat to eye health in the snow, the lens of the goggles needs to be UV-protected. Polarized lenses are also excellent.
    • Hue of the lens - It's also important to think about the lens colour, and having several pairs of snow ski goggles is frequently a smart idea. On cloudy days, choose lenses that are rose, yellow, or orange as they allow more visual light transmission. For most situations, orange and amber lenses are the best.

    When not wearing your snowboard goggles to shield your eyes from wind, snow, and tiredness, keep a "Gogglesoc" handy to prevent scratches on the lenses.

    What are the best ski goggles?

    The ski goggles that suit you best are:

    • Goggles that fits your nose and face snug
    • Have the ideal lens for the lighting conditions where you are (if you ski or board abroad you may have multiple pairs or different lenses)
    • Goggles that include cushioning foam
    • Vents that don't fog up
    • Secure strap prevents your goggles from moving around
    • Are appropriate for your helmet

    Top Tips For Buying Snow Goggles

    Here are some of our top suggestions for what to think about while selecting the ideal goggles for you.

    • Shop online - Auski offers the biggest range at the best prices online and in our store, so do your buying online with fast and free shipping over $50 instead of waiting till you arrive to the mountain, when they'll always charge you more.
    • The Right Lenses & Tint - Before purchasing snow goggles, think about where you often ski, the terrain, and the weather, as these factors will influence the tint you choose. You want a tint that offers protection against eye fatigue along with excellent contrast, depth perception, and colour definition. The best visible light transmission for the lighting conditions you will be in should also be provided by the snow goggles. For instance, you should wear snow goggles with a low VLT on sunny days, whereas high VLT goggles are preferable on days with little light.
    • Peripheral Vision - When choosing the best pair of goggles for you, keep in mind that some of them were not made with peripheral vision in mind. You should be able to see 180 degrees in all directions. Why? You can avoid other skiers and snowboarders on the mountain.
    • Do They Fit? Check to see if your new snow goggles fit comfortably on your head both with and without a helmet. You need a set of goggles that is comfortable to wear and that fits your head shape.

    Ski & Snow Goggle Lenses

    We carry goggles with lenses for every weather situation, no matter when you want to go out including clear lenses, low-light lenses, and highlight lenses. The majority of people who are buying goggles for the first time frequently think that the lens tint is just a pleasant cosmetic element. However, lens tints can have a purpose and can alter how suited your goggles are for various conditions, therefore it's critical to be knowledgeable about the various lens tints. Your goggles' lens tint should enable you to perceive anything from finer colour distinction to greater depth. When there is a lot of light present, such as when there is a lot of snowy terrain that reflects light, specific lens tints are employed to offer these features. Of course, there's a chance you'll also come across dim places.

    • Lenses in amber, gold, and yellow - The conditions when this lens tint is most appropriate include low light levels and perhaps fog. You can better see shadows while also blocking out any blue light with the help of this colour lens. As a result, you can benefit from improved vision in low light.
    • Pink and copper lenses - If there won't be any fog, but there will be bad lighting, pink and copper lenses can be a better option for your goggles. Compared to the lenses we previously mentioned, they are less effective in foggy conditions, but they perform pretty well in darker settings.
    • As a general rule, the darker lenses are better suited for brighter situations. Examples include dark brown, grey, and green lenses. If you're going to be around a lot of light, protecting your eyes from the strain that intense light could bring by wearing colours like dark brown, grey, or dark green is a good idea.

    Goggles can have unique lenses with a specific purpose, just as sunglasses. The most popular choices and their intended uses are given below.

    • Mirror-coated lenses – These lenses are best used in bright, sunny conditions since they will reflect part of the sunshine away from your eyes. These are the preferred option on bright, sunny days even though they are less ideal for dimmer days.
    • Clear lenses are lenses that don't appear to have received any additional treatment. Contrary to popular assumption, these lenses actually have a purpose because they are suggested for evening, night, and darker days. You will require a higher visual light transmission (VLT) the darker the environment. The VLT provided by clear lenses is among the highest available.
    • Photochromatic lenses - Due to their ability to vary depending on the light environment, photochromatic lenses are likely among the most expensive. For instance, lenses will get more clear as it becomes darker. Conversely, if the light level rises, the lenses will get darker. It is the ideal option for skiers and snowboarders who want a lens that works in all circumstances.

    Dual, switchable or interchangeable lens' are very popular with advanced skiers and snowboarders as it means you can change the lens to suit the conditions and you have a spare lens in your ski jacket in case one gets snow in it. Although more expensive than a goggle that comes with only one lens, they can come with a hard case and are much cheaper than buying a single lens goggle + spare lens + hard case.

    How to stop ski goggles from fogging up?

    Take off your ski goggles to inspect the vents, spin them around, and get some cool air in to swiftly defog them if they start to fog up. Use this technique to clean ski goggles, but avoid cleaning the inner lens because you'll remove the anti-fog layer.
