When skiing or snowboarding, you are participating in outdoor sports when it’s cold outside. When you add speed to that equation, you have a recipe for your eyes to water. Goggles will prevent that from happening. A day or night on the slopes will also have many different light conditions. Goggle lens come in different shapes and shades to adjust to these changing conditions. Getting a black or very dark lense is great for very bright light, typically when there are not many shadows. However that same lense does not do well in flat light, shadows or at night. On the other hand a very light lense can be a great option for low light conditions but will cause squinting in bright light. There are more versatile lenses out there. We particularly like lenses that have a bright base lense, to illuminate flat light conditions, with an added coating (typically blue) to accommodate brighter conditions. Additionally many goggles are now being designed to interchange the lenses quite easily, to adjust to different light. Paramount stocks a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and lenses shades to accommodate your specific needs.
