If you follow me on social media, you’ve no doubt seen me ranting and raving over the snowboarding conditions this past weekend. Not only was there fresh powder everywhere, but Rob and I decided to try dropping off some cornice at Loveland Ski Area’s 13,000ft. ridge. Both first timers.

While we were at it, since it was a magical bluebird day, I also decided to try out my new Stage Ideas goggles with spherical lenses that I picked up at OR Show in January. My current setup still has the flat profile so I was eager to try them. Plus, all the cool kids where spherical lenses. I wanna be cool too, guys!!

They blocked the sun wonderfully and gave me better depth perception to see bumps and grooves along the way. Unfortunately, they did not turn me into a pro snowboarder…as you will see below. My only concern is that they did give off kind of a fish bowl effect depending on where you were looking out of the lens. It’s not a deal breaker, but it certainly warrants more testing. The other cool thing about Stage Ideas is their massive selection of customizable straps. No matter your interests, or your humor, they’ve got one for you. Not only that, but they have plenty of lenses to choose from as well. They’ll be coming out with a photochromic lens by next season at the latest.

And as usual, my GoScope Extreme GoPole held up to all the falls.

Don’t Miss Your Chance

I was stuck in Corporate America for 9 years. I was miserable.

Then I took control.

You can too, and it starts right here.
