Choose the Right Shades for Snow Sports
If you ski, snowboard, or enjoy other snow sports, choosing sunglasses with the right color tints can help you perform at your best. Certain tints are appropriate for certain weather conditions:
- YELLOW/AMBER: These tints increase contrast and enhance depth perception, big plusses when you're surrounded by white. They may not be the best choice in very sunny conditions, however.
- ROSE: Pinkish tints improve low-light visibility and are good for cloudy days.
- MIRRORED: Glasses with mirrored lenses reflect back light and make objects look darker. These are especially helpful in extremely bright conditions, such as alpine skiing.
