Best goggle lens for Whistler in March

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm heading to Whistler in mid/late March, and am wondering what would be the best all-around lens to wear?  I have Oakley Airbrakes, with H.I. Yellow and Dark Grey lenses.  I ski on the east, and H.I. Yellow is my standard lens due to the flat light;  I almost never use the Dark Grey.  I'm looking to buy an all-around lens for Whistler in March, that will be sufficient for fog/flat light, end-of-day light, but also can handle bright days in the alpine (if it happens).  Recommendations?  I was thinking about H.I. Persimmon.

In my experience Prizm Rose is the best all around Oakley lense.  I prefer it greatly over H.I. Yellow in fog/flat light, though it is a touch bright for me on bluebird days.  Next best would be Prizm Jade-I find it a bit dark in fog/flat light but better in bright light vs Prizm Rose.

Good call on the Prizm Rose. I was at Whistler last week. It was foggy from top to bottom. Oakley had a demo tent outside the Rendevous lodge and I demoed some goggles with the prizm rose lense. They were awesome for that lighting.

Another vote for the Prizm rose. I was skeptical of their claims but having used them now for 2 months they work really well in the fog and flat light. So long as your eyes are not over sensitive they are also good in bright conditions.FYI I ski at Whistler.

Thank you all so much.  I went with your recommendation.  Prizm Rose lenses were hard to find, though, and I had to order from overseas.
