Best Women’s Sunglasses

Experienced skiers take eye protection seriously while on the mountain. At high altitudes, there is less UV filtering and in clear conditions snow reflects the sun up from below creating glare. Sunglasses protect the eyes from the sun, the wind and sudden snow flurries. In cloudy conditions, UV rays still assault your eyes and sunglasses will improve visibility, depending on the lens color. Light tinted lens (amber, green, gold) let in more visible light, improving contrast on overcast days. Dark lenses are ideal for sunny days when there’s glare. When shopping for snowsports sunglasses, look for polarized lenses, as they offer 100% UV protection, and choose a fit that is snug and comfortable.
