Groundresonance Posted October 24, 2008 Report Share Posted October 24, 2008 Dear All, I will be flying my first season of heliskiing this winter and need some advise on eyewear. I've rarely flown in snow and have just been wearing my prescription glasses under my helmet and using the dark visor over them when it's sunny out. Another pilot told me that I should get some amber lenses to help see contrast in the snow, so I ordered an amber visor for my helmet. Before I could install it, someone else told me orange was much better for snow ops and that amber didn't do much for contrast and was only really useful under low-light conditions. I called Gibson and Barnes, but they don't make orange visors. They do however have a visor called 'high contrast' which I know nothing about. Does anyone have an opinion on the best color for snow ops? I can't wear anything like a pair of Smith sunglasses under my helmet, since I am already wearing my prescription glasses and any type of glasses with a thicker temple (sunglasses) really digs into my skull after awhile. Thanks! -Groundresonance Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
