It really goes without saying that all the fancy rockered skis, heated boots and Gore-Tex outfits can all be thrown in the trash if you can’t see well enough to make your next turn. Goggles are often the unsung heros of the ski hill. Still, you see kids wearing them around town or hanging them from their rear-view mirrors without much thought for the care they really deserve. Take care of your goggles, I say, and they will take care of you.
As one of the oldest goggle manufacturers, Scott knows their stuff. I’ve been fortunate enough to flog the Scott Fix ski goggles and have found them to be solid all-around performers.

Scott Fix Goggles Review
I’ve been able to take these goggles out on a few backcountry trips as well as inbounds at Solitude Resort on an ultra-cold day and Alta Ski Resort on a powder day and have been thoroughly impressed. The foam conforms to my face very well for a comfortable, all-day fit. I also like the style… yeah, a little loud, but not completely over the top.
Overall vision has been top-notch with superb clarity. Under cloudcover, I could have wished for a brighter lens tint, but these are pretty darn solid as a single lens of choice. The lenses seem pretty scratch-resistant as they have yet to incur any scratches–even after some up close and personal encounters with low-lying branches.
I’ve got to call these out a little more for their fog-free performance. You see, I tend to fog up nearly every pair of goggles I’ve owned. Truth be told, there are circumstances that can fog up even the best goggles, but I’ve put these through their paces and have yet to have them fog. Sweaty hikes, long traverses at Alta and hard-charging runs in deep powder… nothing has phased them. Fog-free goggles? Decidedly so thus far.
9 Feb 2017 Update: Believe it or not, I still use and prefer these goggles as my daily drivers. These are some excellent goggles if you ask me. 7 years of abuse and still going strong!
- Spherical lens provides distortion-free vision
- Excellent fit with a variety of helmets (Smith Maze and POC Skull Light)
- Has been fog-free in a variety of temperatures and conditions (and I’m a fog machine)
- Excellent pricepoint
- No strap clip
Bottom Line: Scott Fix Ski Goggles
Easy on the wallet and excellent, fog-free performance on the snow, the Scott Fix goggles are a wise choice if you like being able to see your next turn well in advance.
