If you only ski a few times a year, now’s the best time to buy a pair of goggles. Right now, there are steep discounts on a variety of styles at Backcountry that are ideal for any type of snow day. Like a quality pair of sunglasses, ski goggles present an opportunity to make a style statement up on the mountain. They allow skiers and snowboarders to see the minute details of the slope — even during a blizzard — and protect the eyes from dangerous UV rays as they bounce off the reflective white snow surface.
Unfortunately, decent goggles are often overlooked as unnecessary or simply too expensive (and no, the $40 pair at the ski shop won’t cut it). Renting them is out of the question, but if you hit the slopes a handful of times each year, the discounts on these five high-quality pairs from Backcountry make each pair worth it.
