New brand on the block Glade recently released the Challenger which has rapidly become the clear favorite amongst the Skiing Sherpa team. With premium goggles all under $100, Glade has taken the ski goggle industry by storm. The Glade Challenger offers everyday and low light lens options to ensure that you are covered through any conditions. We recommend this goggle to anyone looking for premium comfort and durability at a killer price point. We’ve been blown away by the innovation provided here by Glade, and we find that the Challenger goggle checks all the boxes, and then some.

You know the feeling, cruising along down the slopes when all of a sudden clouds, fog, or snow rolls in and all of a sudden you are flying blind.

A great dedicated women’s goggle, the Giro Lusi is a good fit for women seeking a smaller goggle with wide peripheral vision. The goggle is designed to fit and mold to the snowboarder’s face, making it an extremely comfortable option. We feel confident recommending this goggle to women snowboarders who ride in standard mixed bag conditions.
