Goggles at Night?

Most of the riding I do is at night. I love how empty the slopes are on a Wednesday night and how peaceful everything seems. I dont know how popular night skiing is amongst the general population on these forums, but I was wondering how many of you wear goggles when you ride at night. What do you think the pros and cons are of goggles at night?

I love riding at night. My googles have yellow lenses, but I would like some clears. I've tried riding without googles, but sometimes the wind and cold bother me so I just leave them on usually. I love doing pretty much anything at night, I'm a night owl, but yeah, I ride with googles.

I have to ride with goggles. I don't have a choice about it. No goggles=no see. My eyes are too sensitive to the wind and cold to be able to function properly without them.

Well I went last year, my first time, snowboarded for a weekend. last day I went I stayed all night. I can tell you that riding at night was my favorite. it was so freaking amazing and euphoric(SP?)
no goggles for me. probably because A just couldnt see good enough in the tinted ones I got B it wasnt snowing and c I probably was not going fast enough to need them

I always wear goggles at night. Helps to see the terrain much better.

sometimes I do sometimes I don't... depends on the temp and if they're blowing snow or not. When I do I prefer the yellow lens over the clear because it allows me to see the variations in the terrain easier. Clear work super well though also

i'ma sometimes i do & sometimes i don't type of person, too. i do think they help to see the shadows better at times though. other times they seem to fuck me up & i pull them down.

I too love night riding if it's well lit. But I always ride with goggles. At night it's yellow lenses... keeping my Oakley Wisdom's for day and the Anon's for night.

I bought these expensive (well, not expensive considering the average price of good goggles now a days) Spy goggles last year. I used them about twice. They mess with my depth perception all too much whether it's bright, failing light, or night. I opted to buy a cheaper set of motocross goggles with a clear flexible lens. The local mountain does a good job of lighting up the slopes at night. I've tried yellow, orange, light red lenses and it doesn't help for me. It might just be me... my friends use goggles all the time and have no complaints.
