smith I/O is the top of the line goggle. you can see the nose on every goggle except for the oakley splices. airbalsters wont have the quick changing lenses, spherical lenses, as good optics, as soft foam. pretty much everything that makes 1 google better than another the I/O has over the airblaster goggles, except price.

I have Airblasters and wont use any other goggle after looking for something wide enough that wont distract my vision I picked these personally. Plus the pricing is cheap enough to have more then 1 goggle and replacement lenses are about $30. I personally just use clear lenses all the time.

You're gonna go blind with clear lenses if you spend any significant amount of time in the moutains.

There is no substitution for human competition.

Yeah I know but for the most part it was always cloudy or shitty visability everytime I went out.

It doesn't need to be. Not only do you gain something like 4% in UV every 1000' you go up, you also increase it in a scary way with all the snow. Also, when you're moving down the mountain at 25mph++, having something to protect your eyes is a good idea.
