The sun is extra strong in the mountain. On one hand, at high altitude we’re closer to the sun and, on the other and more importantly, the whiteness of the snow reflects sunlight back upwards hitting your face. And with less ultraviolet radiation it’s key to protect your skin. Your head is the most exposed part of the body to the sun rays. To avoid damage from the first day you go up the slopes, you must use protection. With this in mind, we have pulled together the products that you can’t be without when packing if you’re going to the mountains.
