Sun Protection

Protecting yourself from the effects of the sun is even more important at altitude. The higher you go, though it may feel colder, the stronger your exposure to the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) rays. If you reach the snowline then the effects are compounded by reflection from the snow.

Whatever the season or altitude there are a few precautions you can take to protect yourself from the sun.
