For snowball fights and building snowmen, waterproof gloves are essential to prevent frostbite.

5. Sunglasses

Both sunlight and daylight contain ultraviolet rays, and when these rays reflect off snowy surfaces, they can reach up to 95%. This is equivalent to staring directly at the sun. Therefore, to avoid snow blindness, sunglasses are a commonly overlooked essential.
