So I am going snowboarding on Feb 6th. This will be the first time I have gone in about 4 years. The one thing I remember from last time was that not having goggles sucks. So are there any recommendations for some cheap goggles? I am looking to spend $30 or less on them if that is doable.

Just get any pair with a strap long enough to fit around your helmet!

BTW I made some cheap "snowboard helmet headphones" by taking apart $5 koss headphones, cutting the earmuffs on the helmet, and putting the drivers in there. They sound great.

I have Bolle Shark Goggles at REI.com

I have used them about 3 times now. So far I haven't had issues with fogging or low visibility. I would recommend them if you want something cheap that gets the job done. I got the ones with no tint, but I'm thinking tint might have been a good idea, it gets bright out there! Although not sure how much that would hurt night boarding.

I'm sure the more experienced guys might be able to help out more

Been boarding about 8 years & I love it. Just got back from a day in Tahoe, in fact. It's my first time this season and I'm as sore as ****, but it's all worth it. The 3 hour drive each way is brutal though. Hope you have closer mountains to ride.

I usually just wear sunglasses if the weather's not too harsh. Otherwise I have oakley goggles that seem to be holding up.
