Favorite non-snow glove for snow use...
« on: 02/26/19, 05:20 PM »

Does anyone have a favorite glove they use for touring, downhill skiing, or wgebersl work in snow that was not designed specifically for snow? Some kind of work glove from a hardware store sealed with wax kind of setup?

I use these if I'm digging pits in the snow.  I know that's now really what you're looking for but I've been really happy with them and recommend them to anyone taking an avalanche class that involves observation pits or companion rescue practice.

I have used the Tem Res 282 gloves for a couple seasons and they work pretty well. Waterproof, fairly warm, and cheap. They aren't breathable and sweat out easily, so I usually wear a pair of fingerless wool gloves for skinning and put these gloves on over them for skiing. They don't have a cuff so I tuck them into the sleeves of my jacket to keep the snow out. They are very light so carrying a couple pairs isn't a problem. They are also easy to invert and dry on an overnight. I have had no issues with throwing them in the laundry when they start to smell. I have worn through a couple pairs so far. The insulation breaks down and they lose their warmth, then they get holes and lose their waterproofness. A pair seems to last about 50 days, which isn't bad for $20.
