Ski goggles protect you from both the sun's glare off the snow and snow, sleet, or another kind of precipitation from getting in your eye. Snow is the 3rd most reflective surface and ski goggles take the place of sunglasses. Also when you ski snow or other precipitation can fly into your face and ski goggles can protect you from this getting in your eyes.

There are two main reasons why snowboarders and skiers wear goggles. The main reason is to keep snowflake out of there eyes when its snowing and to keep there face from getting cold. The other main reason is for looks. No different than there outfit.

Scientists, and others, wear safety goggles when they are working with corrosive, irritating, or toxic chemicals. If the chemicals got in their eyes eye damage could result. The goggles are to prevent that. Some scientists do not work with chemcials that do that, and those people do not wear safety goggles.

You can. But they are not built and designed for the same thing, such as the speed downhill skiers achieve.

Bode Miller is one of the best downhill skiers ever to ski the FIS World Cup. He won 2 silver medals in the 2005 Olympics. But she won't be returning this year. 2nd answer: Bodie is a "he". He is one of the few skiers to have wins in all of the alpine events-slalom, giant slalom, super gs, and downhill.
