If Abraham Maslow worked at a ski shop, he’d tell you that after your skis, snowboard, and boots, goggles are the most important piece of mountain equipment you can own. Goggles are annoying to buy though. A good pair will often cost well over $100, while an affordable $30 lens will fog up before you make it out of the lift line and fall apart before your trip is over. But being able to see the snow beneath your feet is of the utmost importance, so our advice here is straightforward: spend more money on a decent pair of goggles.
The good news is that if you do your shopping ahead of time — as in, now — you might find a great deal on goggles from last season. We dug one up for you: Oakley’s Airbrake XL, which features the company’s contrast-boosting Prizm lens tech. New, they’ll run you $240. But with a discount at Backcountry, you can pick up a pair for more than $100 off that price. The catch? Only a handful of colors are available with the deepest discount, but others are marked down nearly as much.
