Goggles For Docs

Skiers and riders around the country are coming together to provide health care workers with goggles as a form of eye protection while fighting COVID-19 through Goggles for Docs. Ski Utah has collaborated with U.S. Ski & Snowboard and is now a drop-off location. While there is not a current need in Utah, U.S. Ski & Snowboard will be shipping all donations that we receive out of state to the requested donation sites.

What is Goggles for Docs?

Goggles for Docs is an effort to get used or new goggles into the hands of healthcare workers who currently have no eye protection as they treat COVID-19 patients.

Does Utah need goggles? / Where will the goggles be used?

Right now Utah does not have a need for goggles. That's why Ski Utah has partnered with U.S. Ski and Snowboard to send goggles across the country to those in need. U.S. Ski & Snowboard will ship goggles as they are donated to areas of need specified by Goggles for Docs. Should a need arise in Utah, we will shift our focus to help those locally as well. 

What kind of goggles can I donate?

Both new and used goggles are accepted as long as they are in good shape and sanitized. Both clear and tinted lenses with minimal scratches. 


To donate, please carefully follow the directions below. 

  • ALWAYS practice appropriate social distancing.
  • ALL gear should be wiped down and placed in a sealed, ziplock bag prior to placing in a drop-off receptacle.
  • If possible, drop goggles directly into collecting receptacles without touching it.
  • Be assured, the collection point person will wear gloves and wash their hands when handling your donation.
  • When gear arrives at the medical facility, it will be disinfected according to each hospital’s protocol and to be used as they deem fit.
  • If you must touch the collection bin, sanitize or wash your hands!
  • GogglesforDocs will strive to get the goggles into the hands of those areas most in need.
