i find im a better rider even out of the park when i have free motion of my fingers. but I've gotten way to close to frostbite before so i tend to stick with the big puffy ones. anyone know some really warm and thin park gloves out there?

Warm thin park gloves do not exist haha. I've been hearing Celtek makes the warmest lights gloves in the park. But again you are going to get a million different suggestions. Just ask the park rats next you on the lift what they like.

I HIGHLY disagree. I rode Burton Pipe gloves all winter long last year for 6+ hrs a day with very little breaks. Temps ranged from -10 degrees to 20 and they were NEVER too cold or wet. They've got Neoprene with insulation inside. I re-upped and bought another pair this season on sale for $26. Yeah guy

If you're familiar with the concept of scuba wetsuits, you'll understand these glvoes. They are warm as hell. I don't fall that much (mostly because I'm not really ever doing anything where I wipeout a ton...I just charge, hit one jump, then cruise the rest of the mountain) so I've never got my hands buried in snow. If you're going to bury your hands you may want to look elsewhere, but if you bite it occasionally ... these won't ever let you down. LIke I said, I rode them in Ohio down to -10 and never felt cold. I mentioned a wetsuit earlier, because that's how neoprene works. Even if you end up getting a small bit of dampness next to the skin...it traps that little thin layer of moisture there and uses your body heat to warm it up. Sounds screwy, but these gloves work the exact same way as my scuba suit. I normally get cold hands fairly easy, so it's not like I'm just toughing it out.

I can attest to the quality and warmth of these gloves. I've put 3 years on my pair and they're just getting to the point where they need to be replaced.

I don't know what size you wear...I have XL's, but that link had 'em at $23 and the site I found mine on were $26. I don't see these ripping out at all...like the guy below says
