Are there different types of ski gloves available?
There are two main types to choose from, and the one you choose will depend on what you personally prefer. Your two choices are mittens and gloves. Mittens have the benefit that all your fingers will be encased within one single unit, while your thumb is in a separate part of the mitten, enabling you to maintain your grip. Gloves allow for a lot more movement and therefore some people prefer them. Mittens will make for warmer hands though, so it depends on whether you prefer warmth over flexibility.
