The mountain was almost lost a few years back, but the rally was made and it seems on solid ground. A very relaxed atmosphere and a nice lodge. Excellent crowded weekend escape from Sunday...
Who makes the best ski gloves? - Page 2
Gear mentioned in this thread:
It is expensive ($140-$150) but it is the best glove I have ever owned. It is as warm as advertised (good to -20 degrees). This glove is extremely well made - material and fit, and I suspect they will last for many years.
If you want warmer than this . . . you will have to go for mittens.
By the way- if you are looking for a pair of moderate temperature (10-30 degrees) very high quality gloves, and have small hands, www.sierratradingpost.com has the Cloudveil Zero-G gloves in size small for about $19 (regularly about $90!)
I've been using a pair of Hestra gloves for five seasons now and they are still in excellent shape. They are not cheap but are top quality which makes them a good value.

These gloves are really excellent. My ski buddy has the Marmots , he couldn't believe it.

I absolutely hate my Grandoe GCS gloves from last year, water proofing was just no where up to par on them, and they were downright cold in any sort of wind, and once temperatures got much below 20 or 25 degrees (and I had a lot of mornings up here in CNY where it was only about 10 when I started skiing).
Sing it, brother!
4 years of toasty warm goodness even with my hands in which any circulation whatsoever is a miracle of modern surgery.
Hestra!!! By far the most comfortable, warmest gloves I've ever worn. I've got two pairs of the Vertical Cut Freeride model and
I will never buy another glove as long as they continue to make them. I've always had to pull my fingers inside the main part
of the glove on cold days but never with these. I wouldn't reccomend the white leather however. It is incredibly soft and not that
durable. All the other colors are a much sturdier leather.
Best gloves I've ever owned are the BD Guide? It's a gauntlet style glove with a leather palm and a fleece insert. I like the Hestras too, and the Marmot Ultimate Ski Glove, but the BD seems both warmer and tougher than any of the others I've looked at or tried. I've had problems with cold hands and feet in the past and no longer mess around. I buy the best I can find and don't care too much what they cost. My top of the line BD gloves have four hard seasons on them and would probably last close to forever if I hadn't burned a big hole in them doing a torchlight parade. Their still going strong inspire of this with a little duct tape. Amortized by the number of days I've gotten and continue to get from these gloves their cost is far less than the cheap gloves I used to try to get away with when I still skied with frozen fingers.
