Tis the season for building snowmen, sipping toddies and — if you’re the adventurous type — hitting the slopes. If you ski or snowboard, you know that when the snow starts coming down your hands get cold fast. That's when you'll want to have the best ski gloves for women you can possibly find — and not just for when you’re tearing down the mountain. Often, the chilliest part is actually in between runs when you’re stuck on the chairlift, pulling up your neck gaiter, and blowing on your fingers while wondering why you ever thought skiing would be fun in the first place.
It doesn’t have to be that way though. In the same way that having an ultra-warm hat can help prevent those teeth-chattering, cursing-at-the-air moments by trapping in your body heat, having a pair of reliable, waterproof ski gloves can prevent frozen fingers and make you actually glad you came out to play. Regardless of your winter skiing destination, good gloves are game changers.
All that said, you’ve gotta know what you want. Are you someone who gets cold hands all the time and needs the absolute warmest gloves on Amazon? Or do you tend to work up a sweat easily, always wondering, “Why do I sweat when I’m this freakin’ cold?!” In that case, you need something breathable to avoid clammy hands. Or, perhaps you just want to make sure you can still use your phone. Whatever your particular cold weather preferences, these are some of the best women’s ski gloves for the job.
