Did you know that different forecast conditions should influence your choice of headwear? Although sunglasses and goggles are both appropriate accessories to protect your eyes from the reflective snow on the mountain, particular weather conditions and forecasts should influence your choice for safety reasons!
If the forecast is expected to be sunny and clear, chances are you are safe to snag your polarized sunnies and hit the slopes. On the other end of the spectrum, if the forecast is expected to snow a bit, it might be beneficial for you to break out those tightly secured reflective goggles. Although self-explanatory, you wouldn’t imagine the unexpected little storms that roll through leaving skiers in sunnies blindly shuffling down the mountain.
Goggles hug your face, making it virtually impossible for snow to enter behind the lens of your eye protection. So if you have even the slightest inkling or are questioning the weather conditions, you might want to bring a pair of goggles just in case. After all, it’s better to the safe than sorry.
