|grafta||I have ashburys that came with yellow and clear lenses. I like the clear for riding at night under the lights. Yellow still seems to cut some light out... it's not bad, but I always go back to the clear. Oakleys prob have slightly different yellows, maybe they let in a bit more light|

|Pixel8tedOne||I wore clear for most of last year as I primarily ride at night. I borrowed a pair of airbrakes at the end of the year for a couple nights with H.I. Yellow and they were great. They worked real well with the 70's style lights on the hill, so I got one of my own for this year.|

Something to take into consideration is what type of lights your mountain uses on its lit runs.
Any light with a more yellow hue provides more contrast on the snow, then more or less contrast with your lense. If the light is LED or any light that provides a more whiteish hue, the contrast is reduced.
Just stuff to roll through your fingers

I have Yellows with a VLT of 86% for my Platoons and Clears with a VLT of 95% for my Crowbars and so far as I can tell the Yellows are better. It's still possible to see through the extremely low light (tree runs on the side of a lit run) without the glare passed through by a clear.
I would take the Yellow for sure.

if you are looking for a night lens then go with the regular yellow. It lets in more light than the yellow chrome.
I checked out clear and yellow lenses at a local board shop near me and you should def go with yellow even at night. No matter what you need some light in order to see. The yellow intensifies the light and it actually looks brighter. You can try it out for yourself if you don't believe me.
I have 2 pairs of EG2s now that i boguht a new yellow lens for the season and a new pair of the Absurdists. Can't wait.
Night and Day - CHECK!

I was under the impression that your local hill was very poorly lit or had virtually no lighting when I said the clear lens option seems unanimous.
However, as mentioned earlier, I'd go with H.I. Yellow if it's night time but rather well lit for its enhanced contrast. But guess what, you've already decided on that.

|pmoa||Once again, t comes down to preference...i've tried on yellow and it wasnt bad, but i just prefer clear more. I have rose pink lenses that do well too in low light conditions|
