Adjustable strap and silicone inner grip eliminate slippage when you’re carving the face of a snow-covered mountain.
Perfect for everyone from the bunny slope bomber to the double black diamond daredevil. These gnarly snow goggles are anti-fog, anti-glare, and give you full UV400 protection on the slopes with an adjustable NO SLIP fit!!! Plus, they come with two magnetic polycarbonate lenses: one to protect you from the harmful UV rays and glare of bright light and one for low light conditions.

We thought it was a little strange at our recent product meeting when we saw that Carl the Flamingo had a whole karaoke setup rigged in our conference room. Apparently the idea for these incredible Snow G snow goggles was actually planted in his brain way back in 1990 when he heard Weird Al's parody, "The White Stuff," while enjoying a hot toddy apres ski at Sugarbush Mountain.
That depends– if you like keeping your vision clear on the slopes and your eyeballs in your head, then the answer is a big resounding YUP. Not only do the best snow goggles protect your peepers from getting snow sprayed into them (trust us, it’s not fun), they can also help cut down on glare and offer UV protection.
Let’s explain why ski goggles, snowboarding, and even snowmobile goggles are solidly worth the investment.
The best snow goggles will have:
• Polarized lenses to reduce glare from the snow.
• Anti-fog coating to keep your vision crystal clear.
• A magnetic changeable lens system to easily switch between high-light and low-light lenses.
• UV400 protection to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays.
• A comfortable foam fit and adjustable strap to perfectly fit your face, preventing slipping and bouncing on the slopes.
Cool, but goggles like that probably cost half your rent, right? NAH, BRAH. Our Snow Gs check every box on the list for only $75. No, that wasn’t a typo. They really only cost $75.
Now that you know why you need ‘em, let’s walk through how you can buy the best ski goggles and snowboarding goggles. When evaluating new products at goodr, we make sure all of our products meet the Four F’s (Fun. Fashionable, Functional. ‘Fffordable), and wherever you shop, we recommend using these as a guide:
If you’re snowboarding or skiing or snowmobiling or mountaineering, you’re doing it to have FUN– right? So, your gear should be fun too!!!
What does that mean though? It could mean reaching for a pair of colorful ski goggles like our Bunny Slope Dropout Snow Gs to match the rest of your epic slope shredding getup. Or maybe you’re searching for the perfect men’s snowboard goggles (or women’s snowboard goggles– gender is a construct!!!) for a sleek all-black aesthetic, so you want to check out our Apres All Day Snow Gs.
Maybe you’re looking for mountaineering goggles for your next epic excursion and you need a reliable lens that won’t fog up on your ascendant adventure. All of our Snow Gs have an anti-fog coating because fighting your goggles to actually see the breathtaking view from the summit is decidedly not fun.
If your snow goggles don’t work– nothing else about them matters. We’ll go into depth on how to select the perfect snow goggles lens below, but make sure that you’ve got a polarized anti-fog lens with UV400 protection to stay safe. Also, make sure your goggles have high-light lenses and low-light lenses (also known as flat light lenses) so that you’re ready for any conditions.
But even if you have the perfect lens set up, if your fit is off then you’ll be less focused on landing that gnarly jump and more focused on battling with your goggles. At best, that sucks and at worst it’s actively dangerous. Thanks to their adjustable straps and large lens shape, all goodr Snow Gs have a universal fit (which means they fit literally everyone, regardless of shape, age, or gender!!!). They also have a silicone inner grip and foam padding for a comfortable fit that won’t slip or bounce no matter how wild things get.
Ski goggles can look infamously clunky and cringe. But it doesn’t have to be that way!!! You need protection, but it shouldn’t come at the cost of style. That’s why we have colorful ski goggles options like our Here for the Hot Toddies Snow Gs that have a light green frame and vibrant orange high-light lens. Pink and blues more your vibe? Check out the Bunny Slope Dropout Snow Gs!!! Want a classic, timeless black-on-black aesthetic? We’ve got you covered with our Apres All Day Snow Gs.
We get it– snow gear can be super expensive. Especially if you’re newer to the slopes or if your financial priorities don’t include spending three digits on a pair of snowboarding goggles, it can be tough to find high-performance gear.
We’re not into doing things on the cheap. (Financially, at least. A little cheap and trashy energy goes a long way to livening up the après-ski vibe.) We absolutely get down with some ‘ffordable gear though. That’s why our no slip, no bounce, all conditions, all fun Snow Gs are only $75. To answer your next three questions: yes that includes a second magnetic lens, yes that includes the hard carrying case, and yes we made them literally as affordable as flamingo-ly possible because friends don’t let friends wear cheap snowboard goggles.
“Weather” is the go-to metaphor for describing something as unpredictable– so you need to be prepared for anything on the slopes. This means you’ll need multiple lenses: a high-light lens for bright overhead light and the blinding glare off the snow, and a low-light lens (sometimes called a flat light lens) for overcast skies or people who love to start their day with an early morning double black diamond ski-run. (We’ll still be sleeping off last night’s aprés-ski, but good on ya.)
These will have a lower VLT (visible light transmission) to help cut down on the bright light getting through the lens and messing with your vision. They’ll also likely be mirrored lenses to deflect glare.
These lenses have a higher VLT (meaning more light is allowed through the lens) so your vision stays crisp and clear in lower light conditions. They tend to be amber or rose which pop contrast to give you additional ground visibility.
Okay so you’ve got your high-light lenses and low-light lenses, but if the weather is notoriously changeable, then you’re going to need to swap out those lenses quickly. BUT– they still need to stay firmly in place when you’re wearing them.
That’s why we created our quick-change magnetic lens securing system for our two swappable lenses included with your purchase of Snow Gs. And these aren’t like cheap poetry magnets you can use to spell out weird messages to your friends (...or so we’ve been told…), they’re super strong magnets that keep the lens firmly attached while you’re using it, but can be quickly adjusted for an impromptu lens change.
Remember how we were talking about how fog can really f*ck with you on the slopes? Yeah– not fun. That’s why we made anti-fog snow goggles a top priority in the Snow G design process. Both of the lenses included with your purchase of Snow Gs come with an anti-fog coating to prevent things from getting the worst kind of hot and steamy.
The adjustable strap on Snow Gs gives the snow goggles a universal fit– meaning they’ll fit ANYONE. So next time you’re searching for the best women’s snow goggles or best men’s snow goggles or best llama’s snow goggles (okay fine, they probably don’t fit llamas), know that we’ve got you covered across the board.
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE!!! The foam around the frame offers a comfortable snug fit and the silicone inner grip that stays put on your face to create a tight seal around your nose and block out airflow from sneaking in and trying to steam things up. So there you have it, a triple (quadruple?) commitment to anti-fog ski goggles so you can avoid trees and dodge any and all Abominable Snow Monsters.
So we don’t want to brag (JK we love bragging), but polarized active eyewear? We’re kinda experts in that arena. When we set out to create our Snow G snow goggles, they were going to be no different. Polarized lenses have a coating to filter out horizontal light that bounces off of horizontal surfaces (like, you know, impossibly bright sunlight reflecting off the snow) to cut down on glare and give you crisper, clearer vision. This is why polarized snowboard goggles are absolutely essential.
But why would you want to have clear vision when you’re racing downhill on a snowy mountain lined with humans, trees, and other pokey and or breakable forms of nature?!? If that didn’t answer your question, we unfortunately can’t help you.
