There’s a storm in the forecast, and we’re hoping that it will bring us a big powder weekend. They say it will be a cold one, and I hate the cold. But thanks to all the goodies I get from Lou, I can forget my fear of frostbite and just focus on fun.
Keeping fingers warm is tricky for me, especially since I like to take off my gloves to adjust bindings or fish through my pockets for lipstick. I’ve tried lots of gloves and I think I’ve finally found my favorite for backcountry skiing: the Cloudveil Zero-G. It is mid priced and mid weight, yet surprisingly comfortable throughout a variety of temperature ranges. It’s perfect for all but the coldest days. And when my fingers do get cold, they usually heat up quickly when I ball my hand in the palm of the glove. I don’t know if it’s because of the Primaloft or the Schoeller but these hi-tech materials work together in a relatively light glove. It’s magic for me. If you’re in the market for a fine, all-season glove, consider the Zero-G.
