Goggles and glasses

Eye protection is essential in the mountains.

Wearing goggles or sunglasses shields the eyes from the glare of the snow and improves visibility.

Goggles are best used in snowy conditions or for high-speed riding, and offer more protection in a fall.

They cost from 10 for children's goggles and 25 for adults.

Both goggles and sunglasses should have full UV protection.
