Putting Your Eyes to the Test

As a professional ski guide, I have had the opportunity to see many mountain ranges around the world. My skis have followed me on a never ending adventure from coast to coast in Canada and from the European Alps to the South American Andes.  This year my goal is to make it all the way to Antarctica. Each of these environments has their particular challenges but a common one is the need for proper adaptable eyewear.

I live in my luggage and I choose my gear carefully. Styles come and go and eyewear is at the forefront of that charge. I do get new glasses every year from Julbo but one important detail remains the same: the lenses I choose. It is what sold me on the product and what keeps me coming back for more. Since I tried my first pair 10 years ago, I have not changed my lens requirements.

My go-to lens from early winter to early spring is the zebra 2-4 when the sun is still low in the sky. Afterwards, I move to a cameleon 3-4. I’ll always carry in my suitcase an explorer with a spectron 4 lens for those days in the high alpine when the sun is blazing.

For the last two years I have been skiing with the Epic and Peak google with the cameleon lens. I am very much looking forward to Julbo’s new line of Goggles and their Aerospace model. I am confident that a company that has taken so much pride in their lens quality will be soon setting the standard for ski goggles.
