Ski Mountaineering Eyewear
Ski mountaineering is an extreme mountaineering and skiing discipline practiced during the winter season by climbing off-piste on slopes and peaks (for athletes who practice in an extreme way) and then descending down the steep slope. This discipline practiced for simple passion for the mountains, but it is also a competitive discipline with federation competitions.
Ski mountaineering is a candidate to become an Olympic discipline for the 2026 Winter Olympics.
Main features of ski mountaineering eyewear:
- Lenses with high protection from UV and direct light and reflected from the frozen surface
- Frame resistant to high and low temperatures
- Protection from air and ice dust
- Perfect vision without distortion
- High comfort even for prolonged use
UV AND LIGHT PROTECTION:
Ski touring goggles must primarily offer maximum protection for the eyes. From direct and reflected light from the frozen surface, and from harmful UV rays (stronger in the high mountains).
DEMON’s goal is to provide the athlete with ski mountaineering eyewear that, in addition to protecting the eyes in the best possible way even for very prolonged use in the high mountains, allow them to enhance their sports performance through perfect vision.
Using technical lenses for high mountains PREVENTS the typical redness of the eyes at the end of the day resulting from the use of unsuitable lenses.
There are different types of lenses in the DEMON ski mountaineering eyewear line, designed according to specific needs:
- Category 2-4 Polarized Photochromic Lens

The lenses of DEMON ski mountaineering eyewear created to provide the athlete with the perfect vision of the course without distortion in all weather conditions, even the most extreme. The lenses created to increase the contrast in the monochrome of the snow.
Thanks to the wraparound frame, the lenses of the ski mountaineering glasses protect from the air and ice dust during the ascent, and on the hottest days for the descent.
FRAME RESISTANT TO HIGH AND LOW TEMPERATURES:
The frame of the ski mountaineering glasses is made of TR90, a special composition of Nylon and Carbon Fiber that makes the glasses 20% lighter than glasses made with conventional materials. It is more resistant to high and low temperatures without deformation or breakage. It is a hypoallergenic composition, allowing the glasses to be used for prolonged use without irritation to the skin.
The frame differs from the common frames for the wrap that helps the lenses to protect from cold air and icy dust that could come into contact with the eyes, preventing correct vision, or in the worst cases preventing vision for a few seconds (very dangerous thing. in extreme passages).
Some models are equipped with some protective accessories such as:
- Sweat sponge
- Elastic cord
- Removable side parts
To be assembled and disassembled at will for the practice of ski mountaineering
