Default Do you board / ski with rings on?

I was wondering - what do people do w/ their wedding rings, etc etc when boarding/skiing?

I can't imagine rings staying on too easily when u take your gloves off in order to do xyz while in the snow/on break/ etc.

Mine stays on fine when I remove my gloves, its fairly flat though. I think those huge rings you sometimes see on females hands would be a pain with gloves on though.

in the warm weather - my ring is tight, in the cold weather - my ring is loose - my finger size changes. =)

No problems riding with my ring.....only time I ever had an issue with mine coming off was on my honeymoon when i lost it because of the salt water.

By all means mine isnt a wedding ring or anything so not as fussed if I lost it, but I'm always taking my gloves off to do things like change music etc and never once thought it was going to come off. Most guys rings should be fine.

You're supposed to take your rings off during any physical activity, reason being in case you break your fingers. If your finger gets twisted/swollen you will have an issue. I always take mine off and leave it in the room/home.

I have fat knuckles which tend to expand and contract (rest of my finger doesnt change much). So the correct size for me means rings slip off if my hands get very cold and get tight if very hot. I personally take mine off as the snow will mean it is loose and could potentially fall off.
