Last weekend a group of friends and I took a trip out to Colorado to go skiing in Winter Park.  What a great way to end winter by going to the Rocky Mountains and spending 3 straight days hitting the slopes.  The interesting part about skiing this time of year is that you never really know what the weather is going to be like.  One year we had a foot of snow and this year we had 50 degree weather and blue skies the entire time.
Given the great weather, it was a really good thing I packed my sunglasses.  With it being so hot, I don’t like wearing ski goggles and much prefer to simply wear sunglasses.  The key to sunglasses, especially when it is so bright out is to wear polarized lenses.  All sunglasses diminish the amount of sunlight coming through the lens, but polarized lenses vastly reduce the glare caused by the sun.  If you think it is dangerous skiing down the mountain at top speed, try adding in some glare that is reflecting off of shiny white snow.  It is dangerous!  The polarized lenses I had reduced the glare and made everything so much sharper.  The snow wasn’t too bright, the trees were alive with color and I avoided the constant glare and reflection of the sun.  I couldn’t imagine skiing in anything else.
