Gloves or mittens? Your choice is down to your preferences and needs on the slopes. Be aware that while mittens come out tops in terms of warmth, gloves have the advantage of being more practical when it comes to handling zips, backpack straps, hooks on ski boots ... Between the warmth of mittens and the comfort of using gloves, check out our advice for choosing what suits you best.
The must for keeping your hands warm? Don't forget to take a pair of liner gloves. They add 2 to 3 degrees of additional warmth to gloves, but also manage humidity by absorbing it to prevent hands from getting cold when resting (ski lift, meals, waiting on the slopes). Liner gloves dry more easily than a glove’s lining, so they are nice and dry when setting off again after a meal break.
