Promotes the use of sunscreen as a part of skiers' and snowboarders' mountain fun
Ski SunSmart educates winter sports enthusiasts of cold weather sun exposure and how to best protect against those risks.
Sun exposure can be just as damaging in the winter as it is in the summer. Most experienced winter sports enthusiasts know that they need to use sun protection to protect themselves from US radiation, which can lead to skin cancer. Researchers, however, have discovered there are as many variations in UV levels at ski resorts as there are inconsistencies in the way skiers and snowboarders use sun protection.
The Ski SunSmart Program is a new initiative of the Live SunSmart Foundation that aims to promote the health and wellness of outdoor winter sports enthusiasts, in particular skiers and snowboarders. Our goal is to make the application and reapplication of sunscreen a normal routine on the slopes.
