Help preventing snow inside gloves

Hey guys, I bought a pair of goretex dakine gloves but by the end of the day my gloves were soaked.. Iam a still beginner so I do fall a bit, but I was wondering if anyone has tackled this problem successfully? (Other than not falling lol).. Will the longer gloves be alot better?

Are you sure it's snow and not sweat? I have my fair share of falling but any time I get snow inside my glove I almost always immediately know and take my glove off and shake out the snow. I have a pair of burton gauntlet gloves and rarely get snow in them. However, I'm rarely riding in powder and that may be the reason so my response may be worthless.

Palm sweat... If it is not bitter cold, I will usually take my gloves off on the lift for a bit to air them out...

Either get some over the jacket sleeve gloves, or put your jacket sleeves over the wrist part of the gloves and then velcro them down.

Mine do fine on cold days with dry snow, they'll get wet sometimes though. I just deal with it. My dashboard is full of damp/wet gloves and face masks on the way home.

Bring an extra set. My cheap ass gloves seem to work just as well as my 75 dollar Burton ones.

Sounds like snow is getting down by your cuff, if they're too short that you can't pull your jacket over it (and velcro it closed) might want to get gloves with a larger gauntlet. I have a pair of Dakine with Goretex and the gauntlet slides under my cuff fairly easy.

My body runs so hot that I don't really give a shit unless it's under 0F. Then I have everything cinched closed to prevent frost bite anyway so if no air gets in, no snow gets in. I have long gloves that can easily go way over or under the sleeve cuffs. The have wrist straps and cuff straps to pull them tight.

Regular riding days, when its sunny and over 20 I'm spraying snow at myself with vents open just to get the cool down spray...
