Maybe clear if you have zero light, but if your skiing at night with lights yellow would be better i'd think.

In fact some lenses(Hi Yellow Oakley for example) actually have higher VLT than their clear. The problem with night lighting is its always very very flat, so any extra contrast you can get is nice.

I cant stand clear because of the glare...

It may depend highly on what goggles you are talking about..for Oakley though Hi Yellow >>> Clear. And so far the same for my VZ Feenoms. Just incase other people are reading this not using EG1's
I've used oakley hi yellow for low light (under the lights) and they're great!!!!

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
