The 8 Best Ski & Snowboard Mittens of 2024

By: Megan Amick: Accessories Buyer | October 29, 2023


When it comes to ski and snowboard gear, there’s no piece of gear quite so important, and quite so overlooked as the humble mitten. The best ski & snowboard mittens are the ones you never notice because they just do their job so well. They’ll keep your hands and fingers warm, but allow them to breathe well enough that they won’t get clammy or sweaty. Good mittens should offer enough dexterity that you can accomplish simple adjustments without taking them off, but should also offer some hand protection in case you smack a tree. In short, the best ski mittens should do a lot for you, without requiring much in return.

New This Year:

Ski and snowboard mittens are taking a page from the workwear playbook this season. The latest designs showcase workwear-inspired colors and styles, bringing a touch of rugged aesthetic to the slopes. If you're looking to buy new mittens, this year's collection not only ensures warmth and dexterity but also stands out with its classic, durable looks. It's a nod to timeless fashion, seamlessly blending functionality with style, ensuring you're both winter-ready and trendsetting on the mountains.

Dakine Excursion GORE-TEX

The one bummer with beautiful, blower, low-density powder is that you just can't get it on a normal chilly day. The cold smoke that you dream about only comes with seriously low temps, and so it works out that just before the best mornings of your season, when you're waiting in line for the lifts to open on a huge day, you're going to have some chilly fingers. But when you can keep your fingers tucked away inside your Dakine Excursion GORE-TEX Mittens, you've got nothing to worry about.

Hi! My name is Megan. I was born and raised in Washington and grew up loving skiing and the outdoors. Some of my favorite memories are ski trips to Park City with my parents, Mt. Bachelor with the grandparents, and weekend rides at our home mountain the good ‘ol Ski Acres - IYKYK. I left Washington to go to college in California, and then moved to Nevada for a few years. I moved back to Washington in 2013 and jumped right back into weekend rides at my home mountain. Washington is and always will be the place I call home!

I have been working at evo since 2016 and am so grateful for all the opportunities. I started working in our warehouse in receiving and shipping and then worked my way to the merchandising department which gave me the opportunity to integrate my passions as our Accessories and Camp Buyer. It truly is a beautiful thing to work for a company that you are passionate about and that feels like family. You will still find me every weekend at my home mountain with my husband Beau and our daughter Baker.
