Around here you almost have to wear goggles at night. Its about the only time it gets cold enough for them to blow snow, so they do it as soon as the sun goes down and it gets cold enough. If you don't wear goggles, you basically shut your eyes and ride blind for short bursts as you go by the blowers.

Of all the lenses out there, I have found the rose colored (I think it`s called persimon) is the best for night contrast. I like the amber very well, but these persimon lenses show minor contrast details that give you a better view of subtle terrain changes at night. If you think Wed nights are good at meadows, try Friday, no high school busses on Fridays!

Just to clarify, persimmon is an orange/amber lens. Rose is just rose.

I use persimmon for all of my riding, defines the slope and doesn't make everything so bright.

I wear contacts. When not in the terrain park, I like to go fast. Thus, nit even considering issue like snow, I have to wear googles anytime I'm on the mountain in order to keep my contacts from freezing-up. For some reason I seem to get chapped lips and my nose gets cold real quick, so I am pretty much rocking the Snake Eyes look all season w/mask and goggles. That said, clears are the best for night.

I like to wear goggles, but I cant really use them at night. I need some clear lenses.

Same here. Anything darker and I find it very difficult to see.

Very helpful

Yep, I've got some Ashbury goggs that came with three lenses. Clear, Hi Vis Yellow and Grey Tint/Mirror.
The clear are awesome at night, the yellows are good too... usually go with the clear though
