You can set your preferred temperature on our ski gloves and mitts. The higher the altitude, the higher the temperature. You can go all the way up to 37°C to keep your hands snug and warm at all times. Some tips:
- Keep your arms and hands moving
Cold hands are caused by poor blood circulation. Remember to move your hands and arms regularly to keep the blood pumping. Make big circles in the air while you’re waiting around or going up in the ski lift. This gets the blood pumping to the extremities and prevents cold hands.
- Only take off your gloves indoors
Do not suddenly expose your hands to the cold. Wait until you get inside before taking off your gloves or mitts. This reduces the difference in temperature between the inside of your heated gloves and the ambient air.
- Go for mitts
Ski mitts are even warmer than gloves. That’s because your fingers are kept together, and so generate more heat.
- Massage your fingers and hands
When you’re done for the day be sure to spend some time massaging your fingers and hands in the bar or in your hotel room. This is another way to get your blood circulating and warm up your hands and fingers quicker.
- Long sleeves
An obvious way to keep the cold out is to make sure the sleeves on your ski jacket are long enough. Velcro fastenings on the cuff are also a big plus.
Your mitts or gloves should also extend a way past your wrist so you can tuck them into your sleeves.
