The right ski clothing keeps your body temperature at the right level and the correct winter sports accessories ensure that you allow as little body heat as possible to escape. A warm hat, scarf and gloves are essential winter sports equipment. While you must take the icy cold wind on the slopes into account, you mustn't forget the strength of ultraviolet radiation in the mountains. After all, the rays of the sun are much more intense in the mountains than at sea level. Be sure to protect yourself with sunscreen and good sunglasses.
You lose as much as 40% of your body heat via your head. You should always wear a helmet on the slopes, but it's important to keep your body temperature at the right level off the slopes too. Be sure to wear a warm hat on your (lunch) break or during the après-ski.
You must protect yourself from the sun during your winter sports holiday. After all, the strength of ultraviolet radiation can be twice as strong in the mountains. You'll burn faster than you usually do. Good sun protection is essential.
It's best to wear good ski goggles on the slopes. But when enjoying a sunny terrace in the mountains, high-quality sun glasses are essential. After all, fresh snow reflects five times more harmful UV rays than sand does.
