Default help finding goggles

I have been a serious snowboarder for about 3 years now. For this amount of time I have had issues with goggles. I started off with a cheap pair of spy $45 jobs, but when i would ride with any kind of speed my eyes would water like crazy with the goggs on. I always figured that it was just the cheap goggs.

Well last season i took the plunge and spent some money on oakley crowbars. I love the goggs and the look, but still, my eyes water like crazy.

i usually go about 30-40 times per season and have been to utah already once this year. Heading to jackson hole and utah again in march.

Im sick of my eyes watering, its annoying when bombing a black and not being able to see because you have puddles in your eyes.

Any suggestions on how what goggles might prevent this? anyone else have this issue?

Usually if the goggles don't fit and they're too large, the air will find it's way into the gaps which will cause tearing. Try adjusting them to wear they fit your face snug, or else go into a store and try on each pair until you find some that fit your face properly.

What is making your eyes water? Is it too much cold air flowing past your eyes? Maybe you need eye drops... or some other gear (like a helmet or wearing a hood) that will help mitigate the flow of air going through your goggles.
