Do they have vents in the lenses? I wouldn’t think they’d be THAT bad but not ideal.

Ok so I looked around a bit at the differences between MTB and snow goggles and the main difference it seems is that MTB goggles have a single layer lens whereas snow goggles have a double layer lens, which stops the lens fogging in cold snowy climates.

Not a big fan of foggy lenses so I'll definitely have a look for some snow specific ones.

You can get great deals on totally fine goggles...well everywhere. Don't pay full price.

It’s impossible to photo them right. They’re more orange than yellow. This is the best shot I can find online that conveys the true color. Sort of a powder orange.

Probably not the best solution, but what kind of MTB goggles are they? I know Smith makes snow & MTB versions of the Squad & Squad XL, if it's something like that you'll probably have enough venting to make it work.

Nevermind, didn't see there was another page. I've got some new Electric EG2s that I can sell for $25 plus shipping. https://www.backcountry.com/electric-eg2-goggle

That sounds good but I'm in the UK so probably cheaper shipping wise to get some from over here. My MTB goggles are Melon Parker ones which come in both MTB and snow varieties, the only difference with them being the lens itself so I'll probably pick up a snow lens for them. They're really well vented goggles so it shouldn't be a problem.

Ahaha I am a giant Jerry, absolutely. Apparently 15cm of powder was just too much for my Jerry rear end to handle without dying. The EMT who was helping me at the hospital was trying to get my boot off and had never seen a boot with a lace-up liner, I had to explain to her that she had to pull the shell off by itself or it would never work.

Slipped on the ice last night and got some sort of whiplash, and apparently missed an amazing day of storm skiing. Spent the day with a heat pack and muscle relaxers.

But it’s still snowing and tomorrow should be bluebird :kiss:

I did a dumb and got bucked on a flat at speed for my first run yesterday knocking the wind out of me and bruising the heck out of my right knee. Still did 11 runs and 10ish today. Was weirdly good for me though because ot forced me to ride a completely different style. Hope you're back up soon HookShot.

Boho was fuckin rad yesterday. 8” of perfect refresh snow since the system started dense and ended blower. My legs are shot today, going touring tomorrow, ski patrol senior medical test on Sunday during a blizzard, and planning to skip work again Monday. All is right in the world.

I was at the top of copper today from 10-3 and it was fun seeing how much lower visibility would get on each rendevous ride

Oh and I went through some light glades cuz the powder was incredible and made everything more manageable

My daughter is on the cusp of qualifying for northeast regionals (Gunstock) to represent the state in skiing but she has a sleepover at her best friends place before the last qualifying race of the season. If she misses the race, she will miss out on the points and won't qualify. I really want her to do the race, but I don't want to be an rear end in a top hat sports dad and I want her to have a normal social life so against my own instincts I'm letting her skip the last ski race of the year to spend time with friends. (The last race is a slalom race, her best event, too.)

If it makes you feel any better their results at that age literally do not matter at all.

I know one girl who has now quit ski racing and goes to university who used to say that one of the highlights of her life is being able to say that she used to beat a current member of Canada's national team back when they were both in U14.

I also know another one who is on track to at least do NCAA if not make the national team who came in dead last in her very first race, back in U14. She's now Canada's U19 GS champion.

Thanks for the reassurance and the perspective e. I know that U12 results don't mean anything. I just want them to love skiing not hate it so my decisions are affected by that.

Found a really neat pillow-ish line yesterday after an unintended (5 ft) cliff drop. Was a highlight of the season kind of run despite the rest of the skiing being good but not particularly deep.
