Best Goggle Tan

Farmer tan, watch tan, Teva tan… in a ski town, there’s one tan that trumps them all—the goggle tan—and it’s high time we paid tribute. After a day of hittin’ it hard under a bluebird sky, rip off those lenses, snap a pic, and send it in.

Outside Bozeman Goggle Tan Contest

We’ll tally up all the charred cheeks and pearly-white raccoon eyes, and come April the winner will be rewarded with a prize deserving of a day—or a week, or a season—well-spent: a two-night stay for four at Downing Mountain Lodge. Read about O/B's visit here.

Godspeed, good skiers and boarders; may your faces flush, your mugs go monochrome, and your sun tattoos remain a mark of pride and high status among your sad, uniformly tanned peers.
