best goggles for dusktime?

riding between day and night sessions, I couldnt see the snow really well, was like riding blind. I need something to highlight those shadows till the lights come and that I can use at night too?

Oakley H.I. Yellow is what I use for harsh weather and night riding...

No matter what lense you have you won't be able to see all that well at twilight. The light is getting progressively darker so the eyes aren't able to really adjust until it's completely dark and you have a constant light.

I don't see how the goggles themselves make a difference. I'd think its just what lense you have that makes a difference. Yellow would probably be better for when its darker, but also what Qball said.

sorry yea I meant lenses in goggles. Wasn't really thinking, was sleepy.

Thanks for the tip. Anyone use those ones that change color based on the amount of light available?

No i do not, but i am in the market for flat light/low light lense.
That sure was a fun 30 minutes of being blind going down the hill.
Oh, a good lense for flat light would be a nice thing to have, so your not blind on the hill looking at the same damn shade of grey.

Night - Clear or Hi Yellow

I ride several lenses and there isn't really a good one for dusk...but Yellow is your best bet. I ride Chrome Orange during the day, yellow and clear at night. I prefer clear at night over yellow so I just deal with the flat light until my eyes adjust.
