Ski Sunglasses - PRETAVOIR Favourites..
The best time to go skiing has got to be between December and April, so it's the perfect time to introduce to you our favourite pairs of ski sunglasses. Whether you are heading to sought-after ski destination such as France, Austria, or Switzerland, or even somewhere smaller-scale and local, Ski sunglasses are a must-have accessory. Not only do they keep you stylish on the slopes, but they also serve a great level of protection. The pace that you head down the slopes can be dangerous enough without snow, hail, or other particles getting into your eyes. Not only can impaired vision while skiing be extremely frustrating, but it can also be dangerous for yourself and others around you. Let's jump into some of our favourites brands and their ski sunglasses...

MONCLER - FOR SKI SUNGLASSES THAT ARE SUPER STYLISH
Quite often, when people think ski apparel, they think Moncler. Stylish down jackets, windbreakers, knitwear, and accessories are at the heart of the brand. Moncler has focused on extreme weather conditions clothing garments since their origination back in 1952. Starting in a village near Grenoble, France, their quilted jackets were created for those working in the cold.

Infused with not only extensive history but extreme style too!
JULBO - MASTERS OF SPORTS EYEWEAR
Julbo is a multi-sport eyewear company founded back in 1888. The brand was formed by Jules Baud (we can see where the name comes from!) with both optical lenses and innovation in mind. In 1950, Jublo produced the first pair of glacier sunglasses. They were targeted at mountaineers who required an adequate amount of eye protection. The great outdoors is at the core of the company, and with over 125 years behind them, they certainly know what they are doing in the protective eyewear department!
