Is snow blindness more likely to occur on a sunny day or on a cloudy day?

It depends, but ultimately snowblindness would be more likely to occur on sunny days, This is because the snow reflects the sunlight into your eyes. It makes sense if there is higher intensity of sunlight being reflected on the snow, but sometimes if the clouds are thin enough, they would concentrate the sunlight, making it seem brighter. So it really depends.
