I am also in the market for goggles, so thanks for starting the thread, Jim. The main problems I have with mine that they fog up a lot and provide poor visibility in a flat light/ whiteout conditions (not good for skiing). I also wear glasses so I need OTG ones. The ones that I tried were huge, but I finally figured out that standard mens goggles would generally fit me, while womens don't. I am very hesitant to buy them online, as I need to try them out first to make sure they go over my frames and fit my awesome BD helmet. Sooo. Is there any place in Denver vicinity that carries a good selection? (I've been to REI a few times but they don't have good goggle selection at all).

Check out Boulder Ski Deals. They usually have a good selection and great prices.
I really like Smith Optics goggles.

Colorado Ski and Golf sent me an email saying they were having their "Final Liquidation" sale. They usually have discounts on goggles.
