Whether you are a seasoned instructor with 10 winters under your belt, or about to embarking on your first ski internship in the bitter Japanese Alps, having cold hands is never good thing.

Skiers tend not to feel the cold so much when they are carving down the pistes and experiencing the physical aspects of the sport. If however you are standing around all day, it is a lot easier to suffer from cold hands, core and feet… This is a common complaint we hear from ski instructors.

Ski instructors also have to remove their gloves regularly, having to fill out paper work on the snow and also to aid their clients. It is even more vital that their glove is comfortable and warm at all times. In resorts across Europe, Canada, US and Japan, temperatures can get as low as -40 degrees C.

While participating in a ski instructor internship course, a training instructor may spend upward of 5 hours a day on the snow. Moving past this into employment, the average day could greater than 7, especially in peak season.
