The Optimal Ski Goggles for Any Condition

The most important thing while skiing is staying safe. Regardless of what skill level, style, or area you ski, a major accident could be disastrous. That’s why we make high-quality products to keep you safe so you can have fun all winter long. A good pair of ski goggles is just one piece of equipment, but it can have a bigger impact on your ski trip than almost anything else. 

Wildhorn’s snow goggles are tried and tested to be the best on the market. Find out all about what makes us amazing and all of our unique lines of goggles in this blog.


Why Are Ski Goggles Necessary?

Some people on the slopes argue that all equipment besides your skis is purely optional, but that’s simply not true! Many pieces of equipment, especially ski goggles, play an important role in keeping you safe and comfortable while skiing. They keep your vision intact even in strong winds or winter storms. They protect your eyes and face from the sun and keep them from getting seriously injured in the case of a crash. Snow goggles also help with regulating your head temperature. A good pair of goggles can make the difference between a difficult ski trip or your next great adventure.


What Makes a Good Pair of Ski Goggles?

Any ski goggles are better than none, but they are not all created equally. The best goggles have certain characteristics that make them superior and better suited to a long life on the slopes. Here are some of those features:

  • Changeable Goggle Lenses: Most snow goggles come with a VLT score, which represents the amount of light the lens will let in. However, oftentimes a different VLT score is needed for days with different weather conditions. That’s why we offer multiple lens options, so you have maximum visibility in any situation.
  • Comfortable Padding: This one really is a no-brainer. If something is going to be stuck to your face for hours, it should feel good and secure. Part of this is making sure your ski goggles fit right.
  • Anti-Fog Technology: One of the main reasons people wear goggles is to make it easier to see. That reason would become 100 percent null if your ski goggles fogged up with every other breath. Just avoid the problem by investing in anti-fog technology.
  • Ventilation: Never underestimate the power of airflow. Ventilation keeps you from becoming claustrophobic on the slope and regulates your body temperature so you can ski all day long. Your goggle ventilation should also go along with your helmet’s, so one part of your head doesn’t feel drastically different from another.
  • Adjustable Fit: Although most snow goggles do come with adjustable straps to fit your head, it’s still an important characteristic to mention. Some straps are really hard to work with or are flimsy and break easily. We designed our goggles to be strong enough to keep the desired fit, but still easily adjustable. 

Wildhorn’s snow goggles are all equipped with these features and more to give you the best bang for your buck. Now that we’ve talked about some basic standards for the equipment, let’s dive into some specific models.
