When I was a teenager my family went skiing...a LOT! We loved to go skiing with each other and with friends.
We lived in Colorado about 2 hours from a ski resort and would often go skiing every single Saturday as a family.
Since we were such a large family of 7 we had a LOT of ski gear. I was able to test out a lot of ski products because of this.
One of the most annoying things to me about skiing was my eyes watering on the way down and the bright sun. It was very hard for me to see because of this.
To solve this problem my dad bought me a very nice pair of ski sunglasses for Christmas one year. I LOVED them.
I looked fabulous in them and they felt great on my face. I felt like a movie star in these ski glasses!
They also performed well as I was zipping down the slopes with my friends. I have always been obsessed with getting down the mountain as fast as possible so it is imperative for my eyewear to work well!
They had special padding that helped block wind getting into my eyes but also allowed enough air in so that they would not get fogged up like ski goggles do.
Well, all good things must come to an end, right? One day as I was riding the ski lift I took my sunglasses off to adjust my gear and I dropped them. I was devastated!
They landed in a huge snow bank. We skied down to them and searched and searched for them but they were gone forever. I never found such an awesome and loyal pair of ski sunglasses again.
