Everyone you ski with rocks those silly mittens they got down at the ranch and feed store; but they aren't waterproof and can hardly be called insulated. The whole thing seems suspect; Instead, opt for the DaKine Galaxy Mittens, with the durable leather and workwear inspired look but optimized for a cold winter of shredding. Also, those farm gloves don't come with GORE-TEX® but you can bet your bottom dollar the Galaxy Mittens do!
