These Easy Tips Help Stop The Nuisance Of Foggy Goggles While You Ski

When there is crisp snow on the ground, the last thing you want to worry about is cleaning your goggles. It is also a safety issue as you want a clear field of vision on the slopes without fog obscuring any potential hazards. One way to avoid fog is to use anti-fog spray or anti-fog goggles, but this is not a perfect solution.

There are other things you should do to stop your goggles from fogging when you're out in the cold. The first is to make sure that nothing is tucked into the accessory, as this will trap heat. Secondly, you need to keep the vents clear by tapping the goggles to let snow or water out. When you're having a break, you can let air in to stop it from getting too warm. It is also important that you're not too hot, as this can make your goggles steamy, so always dress for the weather.

When you're taking a break in your chalet, a genius tool can quickly demist your goggles: the hairdryer. Give it a swift blast, and the accessory will come out dry and warm, which will feel nice on your face when you head back out. If you're at a café or restaurant for lunch, you can put your goggles under the hand dryer in the restroom.

Instead of putting your goggles on your head, which will make the lenses steam up, clip onto a carabiner or a strap on your waist instead. You can use straps or sheet suspenders to make sure that you don't lose all manner of kit. This includes gloves, hats, and even your phone, as you can fasten them to your coat or trousers. Just make sure to put your phone in a protective covering first. When packing for a ski trip, consider taking a spare pair of goggles, as it is better to have good-quality ones that fit properly in case yours are lost or damaged.

Other ski trip hacks

It's not just your goggles that you need to keep in good condition while skiing; it's your boots, too, especially as new gear can be expensive. To keep your boots fresh, bring some tea bags and put them inside when you're not wearing them. They will absorb any smells or dampness from your boots and help keep them in tip-top shape. You can also take the liners out in the evening so they can air out until morning.

Of course, you can't forget your skis! At the end of your trip, remember to take your skis to be serviced (or wax them yourself); this way, they'll be ready for the next time. It will also help prevent rust or any damage while they're in storage. This will aid in planning the next perfect ski trip as your skis will be ready to go when you are, without any extra hassle.
