Browse protective goggles and impact-resistant sunglasses designed for snow sports: Our collection includes comfortable, feature-packed styles from trusted makers, including Oakley, Wiley X, and Von Zipper. Whether you prefer goggles, sunglasses, prescription sunglasses, or eyeglasses under your goggles, comfort is paramount when it comes to performance eyewear for snow sports. The better your eyewear fits, the more likely you are to wear it—and protective eyewear is crucial while shredding snowy mountain top trails. Look for a style that fits well without slipping or pinching. Some styles include adjustable head straps, foam linings, and moisture-wicking materials so your goggles fit better, and will keep harsh wind and snow from blowing into your eyes.

In most cases, wearing glasses on the slopes can be hazardous to the health of your eyes. If you fall, they can shatter or break and cause damage. Look for goggles or impact-resistant sunglasses with prescription lenses if corrective eyewear is a must. While traditional eyeglasses on their own may not be the best choice for a day of high-intensity snow athletics, some goggles are made with larger profiles in order to accommodate your prescription glasses underneath.
You can wear prescription or non-prescription sunglasses while skiing or snowboarding, but we recommend purchasing a pair of impact-resistant sunglasses to protect your eyes in case of falls or low-hanging tree branches. Look for large, wraparound frames for a wide field of vision. Many snowboarding goggles and ski sunglasses feature anti-fog technologies like vented frames and anti-fog lens coatings, which help keep lenses—and your line of sight—clear. Customize your ski sunglasses with prescription lenses for durable, impact-resistant, sport-specific frames, and choose the ideal lens tint for your snow sport of choice.
The tint of lenses you choose is the game-changer for clear optics on any day spent outdoors on the slopes. In fact, lens color may be the most important feature of a pair of goggles, as gray or black tinted lenses may be great for bright, sunny days, but orange or blue lenses will be better suited to an afternoon where the snow is really coming down. For night shredders, clear, yellow, or pink lenses are best. Choose a pair of goggles with interchangeable lenses to suit cloudy, snowy, sunny, or foggy weather.
