    so I picked up a pair of Splice goggles the other day with a BIPrizm lense. The goggles worked great the other day when I took them out for the day, contrast was sharp and I could really see the texture of the snow and the subtitle changes in terrain. HOWEVER! Once the sun went down I had an extremely difficult time seeing. So much so that I had to ditch the goggles altogether. I don't believe this is due to the Prizm technology as much as it is that fact the lenses are Black iridium.

    MY question: what lense would you recommend as the best lense for night skiing? The lense is easy enough to change so I don't need a lense that works good for both day and night, just a lense that works great at night...

    Let me know!

    Thanks!!

    I thought I had read that too somewhere but couldn't think of where... Did a search but couldn't find anything. I was thinking fire or ice, but don't have experence with ether at night...

    Ice is neutral. Neutral is your enemy when its dark.

    Best lens is HI yellow. I just got Rose Prizm but haven't used it yet at night.

    I am really curious about the rose prizm... Let me know how those work at night because I would love to stick with the Prizm line but need to have something that is effective at night :)

    Well you can't go wrong with Hi yellow. Been using it for years! I will let you know though once I get to use my rose Prizm at night.

    Fire is definitely a day lens. I would go clear, HI Yellow, HI Persimmon, Prizm Rose, in that order. The lights usually cast enough shadow to the point where you don't need a higher contrast lens like Prizm. At that point, it's all about VLT (and which color base will make things look brightest), and I believe this is the right order, from highest to least amount of light transmitted.
