The mission of Skiing Sherpa is simple: we want to help you discover, research, and select the ski goggles that meet your needs, desires, and budget. We are constantly updating reviews, doing new tests, and exploring new products to ensure our recommendations are always as accurate and helpful as possible.
We take your ski day very seriously – so every review is as thorough as we can make it. If you ever want more information on a product, please leave a comment and we will definitely get back to you with our thoughts!
To cover expenses and run the business, Skiing Sherpa may use referral links. These referral links don’t cost you a cent, but if you make a purchase from one of the companies that Skiing Sherpas uses referral links for, these links tell those companies that you came from Skiing Sherpas and lets us earn a commission from the sale.
Skiing Sherpa was started and is owned by Glade Optics, LLC.
We wanted to create this page to clear up any confusion about how we create the content of this website, what our relationships are with the manufacturers in the industry, etc. We believe in transparency, and we want to use this page to be as transparent as possible with all aspects of our website. We are also disclosing this information in an effort to be in accordance with the FTC’s “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising“. 16 CFR, Part 255
Receiving Free Products
In some cases for our reviews, we received the product for free in exchange for us considering writing a review. Just because we receive a product does not mean we will publish a review. We didn’t start this website so that we could write scathing reviews of products. If we don’t think a goggle lives up to our standards, then we will not write a review on our site. With that being said, we have received the following products for free:
Glade Challenger goggles
Glade Pulsar goggles
Glade Versa jacket
In some cases on our reviews you may find “affiliate links.” Essentially what that means is that if you click the link and make a purchase, we will receive a commission. This comes at no cost to you whatsoever. It simply means that the origin of the sale is tracked back to our website. We may also provide a coupon for a product that is used to track the source of a sale, for which we are then compensated.
We may also may link to general e-commerce sites where we receive an affiliate commission, though we have no direct relationship with the company that manufactures the product (eg we link to the particular goggle via Moosejaw and receive a commission, though this is purely a relationship with Moosejaw, and not a relationship with that goggle company). These ecommerce sites include:
We do not allow sponsored content on our website. All the content comes from us and we do not allow any outside party to provide content on our website.
