This is for those new to the sport of skiing or snowboarding…a few things to keep in mind as you get your gear ready for some winter outdoor fun!
1. If you wear prescription eyeglasses, you will have to find goggles that fit over them if you have to use them to ski. There are two designs, the regular size which is smaller and the over size that accommodates for eyeglasses.
2. Try goggles on with a helmet: Test to make sure they fit comfortably on your helmet, as well as when pulled down so they are not too loose or tight on your face. Make sure the strap has enough “give” to make adjustments.
3.Tinted: As with sunglasses, goggles have tints that vary. Yellow/brown tints usually work well at varying degrees of sunlight. However, you may want to try on the various tints to find what works the best for you.
4. Test outside store in natural sunlight so you know what tint works for you.
5. Make sure they feel comfortable.
