Buying a good set of Gloves or Mittens can make or break a snow trip, just like Goggles and Boots what you put on your hands is very important. You use your hands for all types of things when you a are boarding or skiing. You push up off the ground, tighten your bindings, take out your phone to take a picture so a you make sure that you can do it all.

When trying on gloves or mittens you want to be able to make a fist easily without them restricting movement at all, you don’t want your gloves or mitts to be super tight in the same was you don’t want excess room at the fingertips as it can make gripping objects difficult. Try to pick something in the middle.

Gloves or Mittens we get asked this a lot, is there a difference? What should I go for? Which is warmer?

When choosing either Gloves or Mittens its important to know what the temperature is likely to be where you are headed. How often you expect to be touching the snow, either picking yourself back up when you fall over or hiking through thick snow.

Ski Gloves

Ski Gloves are the most common style that we sell they allow dexterity of the fingers which is great if you must use your hands a lot either getting belongings out of your bag, helping children with there gear, using your phone or camera. Some people find it easier using gloves as they are unrestrictive, if you can when trying on gloves or mittens trying to get in out of your bindings or undoing buckles on your bag and jacket.
