#!markdown The only way to keep falling snow out of your eyes while skiing is goggles. And the speeds on snow are way higher than riding. I can't ski in sunglasses because my eyes will water unless it's really warm out. The cold winter air seems to cause my eyes to water more. I rarely wear any eye-ware riding in winter because I have a serious fogging issue. I do get watery eyes often enough at the start of a downhill trail though but it clears up after a short distance. The no lycra and keep the visor thing is just stupid. Visors were invented to keep roost from the rider in front of you from hitting your goggles and from sliding off the helmet onto said goggles. If the UCI says wear protective clothing that's reasonable. But when races are won and lost by fractions of seconds in a speed sport I really don't understand why riders wouldn't insist on aero clothing and ditching the visor unless its raining where a visor helps.
