Default Glove vs tow-rope

Any hill near me uses tow-ropes if you want to get a decent amount of runs, and well as you who have used tow-ropes before know, they rape your gloves. I go through atleast 2 pairs per season of the gloves that i currently use which are pretty good. Do any of you have suggestions how to aid in the life span of my gloves? or know any good gloves out there that are tear resistant and good?

Other then that i have your standard suede work gloves that handle pretty good, but they have no waterproof aspect and get wet like your girlfriend. So they aren't to nice to use for a long period of time. But those are just a temporary solution.

Glove protectors or leather gloves.

The gloves i use are leather gloves, its pointless going to the hills and using the tow without something like that. Even the glove protectors are just a quick not long lasting thing here.

Yeah I feel your pain I also ride at a resort where I have to ride the tow rope a ton, and I'm an instructor so I use it even more. Theres not really any good options I know of.

The work gloves i have work well with the tow rope and are not to expensive but like i said in the previous post they are not that great for snow and such.

It's such a pain, tow-ropes are good for a lot of runs in one day but are not so safe for the longevity of your equipment.

No not at all. What kinda work gloves? Like something you would get from the hardware? My hill is only 150ft vertical and the terrain park is even shorter...theres a lift on the main part. But to lap the terrain park you have to ride the tow rope. It sucks.

Yeah, It's that style of glove anyways. Using it with liners isn't that bad, actually if its not to wet out you can last a hour or two. But after they freeze your hands just get cold.

Thats the worse part about the ropes! They make your gloves freeze rock hard.

I agree, but what can you do. You have a choice of snowboarding with the problem of the dreaded tow-rope, or to not snowboard.

And the right choice is obviously to snowboard!
