Your choice of lenses and goggles can make or break your trip to the slopes, which is why it’s best to call in the experts. With over 35 years of experience and three generations of opticians behind the optical boutique’s helm, you know you’ll be in good hands from the moment you walk in the door at Eye Pieces of Snowmass.
Located in the Base Village of Snowmass—just steps away from the ice skating rink, gondola and restaurants—makes it convenient for locals to pop in. Filled with modern touches and luxurious light-up glass cases lining the walls, the boutique is a skiers paradise. They carry a world-class selection of sunglasses, glasses and goggles all available in prescription. You’ll find all of your go-to brands here—think Chrome Hearts, Jacques Marie Mage, Dita and Moncler. With the help of the expert staff members, you may even discover a new favorite. “As opticians with a passion for skiing and riding, we consider ourselves goggle experts,” says manager Dani Barry. “We are always on the search for the latest and greatest gear.”
Eye Pieces has even played a part in creating new ski technology. In years past, they teamed up with Smith Sport Optics engineers to develop a prescription goggle that addresses the challenges people face with skiing with less than perfect vision. Since this first endeavor, they have expanded their selection of prescription goggle systems and have created lasting partnerships with highly exclusive brands.
For those who prefer to sit by the lodge’s fire or view the action from a distance, Eye Pieces has the accessories for you too. Chic sunglasses and eyewear dot the shelves, perfect for a fashion-upgrade. With free cleanings and adjustments for all eyewear, Eye Pieces is truly a one-stop-shop. “At Eye Pieces we want to bring products to our customers that are representative of their dynamic lifestyle,” Barry says. “Whether they are needing the latest goggle technology for a ski trip or fashion update to their eyewear for an event, we have the spectacles to help them see and be seen.”
