Snow goggles often have fairly strong magnets in them to hold the lens in place. Would these magnets damage digital/mirrorless cameras and memory cards at all?

They won’t affect a memory card. It’s easy to Google that answer. Regarding the camera, I can only find info that says it will definitely not be affected by that type of magnets. Others may have a different opinion.

There's nothing ferrous in a memory card so it can't damage them. As for the camera, they'd be more likely to have an impact on a DSLR than a mirrorless camera because most mirror mechanisms are magnetic.
