People are missing the point. This isn't "this is too bright, please remove it." This is "this is too bright, please tone it down."
It's bright enough I checked my monitor settings. I have no physical stake in this, but I agree with it enough to put it in developer feedback. Next time you do this map, tone it down a bit please.

Snow reflection can cause eye strain, cornea burn, or even sunburn. I'm pretty sure olympian skiers have already proven themselves not to be "pansies", and they still wear tinted goggles to protect from the brightness.
Anyone joking about sunglasses with snow clearly hasn't lived in a non-urban area with snow. Try living in a rural area with snow. It's like the sun is shining at you FROM EVERY DIRECTION. Even glass buildings only reflect the light at right angles, the snow reflects it everywhere.
