Are your hands soaked? Or just your gloves?

A must for me: long goretex gloves with a cord at the entrance AND strap around the wrist. Both tightened = no snow/pow will enter the inside.
These are the best ones I had so far; very durable, even after 4 seasons all seams are perfect.
Catalog - SNOWLIFE Rider GTX

To avoid them getting sweaty I take them off on the chairlift. If you fall a lot in spring snow the gloves will get soaked with water outside and thus the sweat from the inside cannot evaporate sufficiently. Try to expose them to the sun while taking a break. If they're black, they'll dry (at least a bit) pretty fast. If you sweat a lot, wash the gloves frequently. The salt transpired while sweating will accumulate in the gloves and this keeps the humidity inside.

are they leather gloves? if so you may want to add leather balm to them to help protect the leather. I have a pair of leather gloves that get a bit wet when i haven't applied this to them in a while, but not like your situation.

My gloves get wet enough that I have to bring a spare pair and change mid-day. They're not goretex though. I don't think it's sweat, I think it's from picking myself up off the snow all the time.

Flabbergasted: Having an excess of flabbergas.

If it's not sweat then:
1. Get a jacket with wrist gaiters
2. Get layer gloves
3. Get good gloves

That will undoubtedly solve your problem if it's not sweat.

Something to remember --> Gore-tex does not keep the outer glove from getting soaked. It is a membrane underneath the outer glove that prevents that moisture from getting to your hands. You might be thinking that your hands are getting soaked because you are sweating and feeling a lil wet.

If you want to know what a true wet glove feels like, wash your gloves, and put them on before you dry them.

Got a pair of Dakine Titan mitts, and I do not have this problem at all, even in spring conditions.

Three things.

1. It is one of the dry-est gloves I've ever owned. You have cinch problems maybe? I tuck under my shell and cinch.
2. You could either warranty with Dakine, and get a new pair, or you could use some of this, this, or this. I like the 'tent proof' the best (use it for my boots). Haven't needed to use it for my gloves though.
3. As people have said, you probably sweat a lot. I don't.

ya get some ninja sleeves/wrist gators. that will help air them out and keep snow out. just try to keep those wrist from being exposed. also if you are going down a lot you are probably sweating. going down and getting up repeatedly is much more tiring than plain jane riding.
