Sunscreens

We haven’t seen much snow recently, so it has been a great time to do some “spring” skiing and try out some sunblock. Up at 8,000 feet, the UV intensity is about 40% greater than it is at sea-level. Add the reflection of the snow and a great sunblock becomes even more important. Coppertone and MDSolarSciences each sent us a spray-on product for body protection and a compact, stuff-it-in-your-jacket product for face protection. Both companies offer critical UVA/UVB protection and are designed to stay on while you sweat. Here’s the low-down:
