I recently had the opportunity to test out the Vuarnet Everest Ski Goggles for a few days in mid-January at Whistler Blackcomb. We encountered a variety of conditions during testing, from heavy snow and dense fog to occasional batches of sunshine. These goggles excelled in all conditions, thanks to the premium materials that made my days on the hill smooth sailing.
The first thing that caught my eye was the design of these goggles. The build quality felt durable and sturdy. They feature a nice amount of foam on the face and smaller comfortable straps that work well over or under the helmet. I tried them with a Giro and Oakley helmet and found both had a good fit between the helmet and goggles. The spherical design of these goggles allows for an extra-wide field of view to see anything and anyone on the mountain in your peripheries.
One standout feature of these goggles is their exceptional vision. The lenses, equipped with Vuarnet’s renowned mineral glass technology, provided crystal-clear vision in various light conditions. Whether navigating through bright, sunlit areas or a whiteout, the goggles adapted seamlessly, reducing glare and enhancing contrast for a positive riding experience. Their lens technology highlighted the different textures in the snow, allowing me to ride as fast and in control as I wanted. The magnetic integration in their lenses allows you to change out to a different lens in almost two seconds flat – whether in line, on the chairlift, or even while riding.
Vuarnet has evidently invested in advanced anti-fogging technology for the Everest goggles. Even during warm temperatures and consistent laps, the lenses remained fog-free, ensuring an uninterrupted view of Whistler Blackcomb. This, to me, is one of the most important features in a good set of goggles.
There is almost nothing I hate more than when my goggles fog up on the hill. These goggles’ ventilation system deserves special mention. They were designed to promote airflow while preventing snow and moisture from getting in, effectively maintaining a clear view throughout the day. About 80% of the perimeter of these goggles is made into a venting system, leaving just the nose bridge as a solid piece.
The Vuarnet Everest Goggles ($310.00) deliver an outstanding combination of style, functionality, and comfort. Whether you’re a seasoned skier or boarder or this is your first season, these goggles offer a reliable and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend the Vuarnet Everest Ski Goggles to anyone seeking top-tier goggles for their days on the hill.
