Wow, a wool outer, not a wool inner?
Wool liner sounds like a good plan with maybe a gortex outer.

I think its the SX Crossover line.
Thanks for the suggestion!

I pull it out and put it in my pack or pocket (doesn't take up much space). Ski the first half of day with just the shells, which is thin, but keeps me warm. Once the shells start getting soaked through and my hands start getting cold, I put the liners back in the gloves and I'm back to being completely dry again. This will hold me over til I'm done skiing. Then it's just making sure I dry them when I get home. For skiing multiple days in a row, I make sure I have multiple pairs so I switch back and forth and never start a day with slightly damp gloves.
Another neat idea. Thanks!
While I don't really like my hands sweating, I really dont like them cold either.
That happy medium is just so hard to find.

I'm wearing about the least amount of clothing I can while skiing.
Long underwear and a thermal top with a wool shirt. Pants and ski jacket.
Any less than that and I get cold.
Your right though, the gloves are probably not breathable enough.
The thing that irritates me about the gloves though, is if I use them for something other than skiing, my hands get cold. =(
