    That's GENIUS. I go on a ski trip every year, but I'm from the South, so I don't have waterproofed warm gloves, and my hands freeze everysingle year. Thank you for my fingers.

    totally worked, thanks so much. used it today for my kid, so hard to find gloves for little ones but this solved that.

    LOVE IT! I agree with trf, I would use the kitchen gloves. Still, Great idea.

    i like the idea but with 1 downfall..those medical gloves rip so easily >.<..my suggestion is get the thick rubber kitchen gloves and trip the sleeve part off them..much more durable =)

    I've used this trick a few times. Figured it out when I forgot my good gloves one day while teaching an Ice Rescue class. Use blue or purple Nitrile medical gloves - they're tougher, fit closer and usually have longer cuffs, which increases the waterproof area of protection.

    You get better grip of the snow when its like that.

    Now that's not a bad idea. I will have to try it.

    Ha ha I like it. Could have done with that this week. My hands got soaked.
