I have no problem with someone using an iPhone or other while on the trail; to contact a friend or get info. BUT if you are using the iPhone while riding that is a problem.
It's bad enough that people drive while talking or playing with their phones and getting into or causing accidents. If someone crashes into me while using their phone, I will take it from them and chuck it into the woods or over the cliff.

i had to add my 2 cents:

but i wouldnt buy ANY glove/liner that say they are compatable with cap.touch screens. They are probably way overpriced to begin with.

also many pipe gloves (that arent mainly rubber) would probably work, especially when they get damp. My grenade pipe gloves work great.

AND if you solely want to use your iphone for its ipod/music use; i believe theres a 3rd-party app called GlovePod (or something similar) that makes the volume buttons work as next/prev buttons when the home button is doubleclicked on lock.
but this is only available on jailbroken iphones

If you don't want to buy new gloves/liners, you can just sew some conductive thread into the tips of a couple of fingers.

Make Any Pair of Gloves Work with a Touchscreen

Hope that helps.

I bought a small piece of conductive fabric to sew into the fingers of my gloves. They make conductive thread as well.

Sorry for the outburst. I guess I have snow rage.

Usually, I visit smaller resorts frequented by Bennies; who think they own the mountain. They cause many accident and half the time someone gets injured. I've been lucky so far and have not suffered any injuries but have taken a few hits by oblivious or out of control patrons. Yes, the resort is crowded and sometimes it takes 45 minutes waiting in line to get to the ski lift.

Snowolf, you should check out AccuTerra. 4.99 and you can download grids of topo maps with hiking trails and such to use when you are out of cell range.
