    I recently changed over from gloves (I have a few pairs incl leather and gor-tex) to mittens and it was immediately obvious that they are far warmer than gloves. Gloves are the wrong design for keeping your hands warm, and for a number of reasons, which all add up to much colder hands. You lose heat through surface area. Think about the surface area of a glove with an individual compartment for each finger, versus a mitten that is essentially a bag you throw your hand into. A bag in which you are creating and storing warm air. Gloves are pathetic in this regard. Second – the mitten is much easier to just put your hand into. The glove – again with it's surface area – resists being pulled on by friction. So your hands are out in the cold longer. You just plunge your hands into mittens almost effortlessly. Third – on the lift – or even on the side of the trail – you can easily ball up your hands within the mittens. Doing so with gloves is far more difficult. So have cold hands and play with (and possibly drop) your iPhone – I mean, I do it. But with mittens off. You can't really operate your phone with ski gloves on either. Now here's another thing – I have a little "tether" – an elastic strip about 3-4 inches long sort of alligator clips at both ends. One end gets clipped to my jacket. I just leave it like that. When I want to take my gloves off, I clip them into the other alligator clip. If you just leave your gloves/mittens on your lap, they could fall off the lift and then your hands will really freeze. If all that is not enough for you, I find it much easier to get my hands into the pole straps when I wear mittens vs gloves.

    I know I wrote a lot but it's your hands, folks. Get mittens. I swear by them now. Even for spring skiing the ease of on/off makes them better than gloves.

    For those who like natural fibers try silk for your base layer and glove liners (found mine on Amazon). I find it insulates really well. A couple of tips. Silk snags on velcro easily and preferably line dry (dries really quickly or overnight) to preserve the appearance of the silk. The last advantage is that they take up no space if all the space in your bag or suitcase is otherwise taken up by your boots and helmet.

    Forget about all that. Bring vodka. If you get cold, pull over and chug back 2 or 3 once’s of it and your fine after.

    Good advice. I only get to go skiing once a year and I use a silk glove liner (cheap off e-bay) with army surplus German goatskin gloves. They're warm, tough & stay warm even when they get wet. If you need to take them off to do stuff the silk liner is still warm. You can order both online for around £15 combined. Merino wool base layer, fleece mid layer & a good jacket. A decent long buff (gator) that can be used as a hood and pulled up right over your face when on long lift rides is essential. I wear a small backpack (I think it was a hiking one to carry a water bladder). This will hold my buff if it's warm, I can tie my fleece around it if it gets really hot, I can fit in a small water bottle and snack bars but it's still small enough not to get in the way on lifts etc…

    An extra tipp regarding the socks is, to wear compression socks (made for skiing) which are usually thinner and enhance blood circulation, hence keeping your feet warm. You don’t get these socks everywhere, since they are trying to sell you the thick, sweaty-feet socks… 🙂

    Extra tip: When taking off your gloves during a drink or lunch outside, your gloves will cool down fast and you risk cold hands afterwards. In order to prevent this from happening, put your gloves inside your jacket… or just sit on them. That will keep yours gloves warm. 🙂
