Had a scary (but still good!) day at the Bird my last day in SLC, March 29. A storm had come in, bringing with it low light and some pretty hard snowfall (hard in both amount of snow and the type of snow...it wasn't nice and soft at all...) My Oakley A-frame vents, due to their design, I learned later, got clogged pretty quickly with snow and ice. They fogged up, of course, but then to make matters worse the fog froze, rendering me nearly blind in worsening conditions. At our last run around noon, right before they closed the Tram, I got seperated from my party and had to make my way very slowly down the mountain. Visibility was so poor that I would get vertigo every few turns and would have to stop.
So, in an effort to avoid any such problems in the future, I want your suggestions on the best, storm-proof, bomb-proof goggles you've ever used! I've already gotten suggestions to try either the Smith Phenom goggle or the Oakley Wisdom goggle. Whichever frame design I end up getting, I'll make sure to get one low-light lens and one sunny lens, so don't focus too much on particular lens. Give me your best, storm-proof frames!
