Smiths' Sensor Mirror lens is the best all-around lens I've ever used. You're right that it's a little light for full on bluebird days, but still usable in those conditions.

P3 Mammoth Big Bear = sunny most days of the year. I would probably go with the darker Gold lens than the lighter Blue.

Thank you, that's exactly along the lines of what I was looking for. If you've been to Burton's site, they have a shit load of lens options, but they also have that simulator that shows what the differing conditions would be like for park/pipe/backcountry for a blue bird/overcast type of day. Pretty bitchin, but I wasn't sure if that applied to manufacturing lenses of those colors, or just Burton's.

SnowOwl I was mainly looking to see if anybody had any input on how different the impacts the colored lenses made on a sunny day/overcast/etc.
