Skiing is a gear-dependent sport. It requires skill and practice to navigate the snowy terrain and having the right snow attire and equipment is mandatory. Ski gloves may not top the shopping list of must-have items, but never underestimate the utility and comfort of having the appropriate gloves to enjoy your runs. Ski gloves protect your hands and wrists in freezing temperatures, so gloves have to be long enough to extend beyond the wrists. Gloves must have some grip material on the palms to improve your hold on the poles. Ski gloves should also allow adequate mobility in the fingers, hands and wrists to allow maximum control over your movements.
