I would wear glasses when I am out of contacts, but that is a pain in the but, and often the glasses will fog, and your goggles are fine. 
so, contacts, no question.

agree with hukit.  if you have contacts, definately wear them.  if you don't have contacts, you could rock the glasses with some huge goggles.  they're both a hassle.  best bet: get LASIK and there won't be a problem... (i wish i could do this but i hear it's bad for people in their 20's to get it done because our eyes still aren't fully developed.  and it costs a lot.)

definitely contacts, but if you are new to wearing contacts, try to carry either an extra lens and/or small bottle of solution and case. My eyes dry out occasionally on the mountain, but a couple of eye drops take care of that. Just be prepared if you don't know how your eyes will react, it would really suck to go up there with contacts on and end up losing one and having to ride the rest of the day with one eye blurry....

I wear Contacts, no problems. Contacts 200% better.  Never wear glasses ever again! If your new to the scene then just bring

-glasses along
-Lense solution
-eye drops

along in the vehicle.
