>Off the Beaten Path>Way off the Beaten Path - Ski Goggles
Bring it on.
I ski, Abracadooble (sp?) is a big time ski-girl. Yes, they make goggles that fit over glasses...
...as for recomendations, I'd go to a specialty store and talk to them.
You'll ruin your knees!

Thanks everyone for all the great tips.
Hi abbaroodle, I never really thought about getting a helmet, since I like to stay in control at all times and don't take a lot of risks. I want to get goggles, for even at the slow speeds I travel, the cold wind in my face makes my eyes water, combined with the snow coming down, and my glasses, and I am practically skiing blind.
We are going to Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia.
Have you ever been there? I was there once, at the end of March last year, and had the most incredible time. It snowed most of the time we were there, so the conditions were amazing. (Meanwhile it was in the 50s back in central Virginia!) They have a good variety of trails, and I thought we got a real good deal on lodging and lift tickets (2 people, 2 nights lodging, 2 days of lift tickets, for a grand total of $235).
Needs more cowbell!
Adults who want their kids to wear a helmet should definately be setting an example - like wearing a seatbelt or bike helmet!
