Default Which color lense do you tihnk would work best for me?

I had lasik done years ago, and while my vision is fine, I find it to be not so great when its dark. My problem now is that the base bronze/silver mirror (24% VLT) lens on my Electrics makes everything pretty dark for me, even on sunny days. I find myself with my goggles on top of my head more often than not. So im looking for a replacement lens that will still give me some protection while not being too dark.

Im looking into yellow/silver mirror (67% VLT) and blue/silver mirror (66% VLT). I think either should give me enough protection on sunny days (i can still switch to the bronze if its CRAZY bright out) while still being good for me when its cloudy out, but ive read that blue lenses are a bad choice on the slopes. I dont remember why though.

Anybody have experience with yellow and/or blue that could help steer me in the right direction?
