2012 has been a trailblazing year for ski goggles. Two big ski-gear manufacturers joined the goggle-making fray and existing brands have upped the ante with innovative optics and other features. New technologies, like heads-up display mini-screens providing real-time data via GPS-receivers that connect with smart phones, have emerged. One company even released a new goggle with an integrated HD video camera. The future of ski goggles is bright.
