I use Spy's pink contact (my avatar pic) on partially cloudy to cloudy days. I've used it on days it's puking snow and it works fine. I suppose a yellow would be better on the darker days.

If you're looking to get wild with some new snowboard goggles... checkout our El Kabong... It comes with a yellow lens for low light and a dark lens for sunny days...

Head over to the funny farm to pickup some new VonZipper

While I think over $200 (in Canada) is ridiculous for a pair of goggles I have to say those are some pretty awesome looking goggles. Probably the best of all the new quick change styles coming out.
