The ski seasons is fast approaching. If like many other students you are booked onto the Christmas ski trip you’re in for a treat. Nevertheless, when it comes to packing you probably will want everything from ski accessories through to party clothing. Packing can be extremely tedious, especially when trying to cram everything into your suit case. However, one accessory you shouldn’t forget are your sunglasses.
You’re probably wondering why bother take a pair of sunglasses with you, considering that you’ll probably have packed some goggles? Nonetheless, here are a few pointers:
- Additional UV protection
- When you’re at lunch and want to take off your goggles
- Comfort and ease
- So you do not have to squint, and can actually look slightly cool
It is safe to say that sunglasses and ski/snowboard goggles have become a vital part of every ski kit. Why? Well, the wrong type of lens can impair your vision, as UV rays can be eight times more powerful/strong because of rays reflecting off snow. Snow is able to reflect 80% of light compared to normal objects. As such, choosing your goggles or sunglasses for skiing and snowboarding is crucial.
