Wore these on the mountain while boarding. It was my first time on a board, normally I ski, so I spent a lot of time on my butt and with my hands in the snow. They took on a little moisture but didn't seem to lose any warmth. By the end of the day my pinkies were starting to get a little chilly, but on the slopes at Brighton with a high teens temperature on the lift I think that is kind of expected. Overall a great and VERY durable glove.
*** EDIT: Just got back from three days in the Austrian Alp near Tirol with these gloves, performed great. My hands were almost always toasty unless I was stuck in the line at a lift for too long. The gloves dried out overnight without any problem and never soaked through. The long cuff made forays into the powder less than a concern. I blasted these gloves with everything the mountain could throw and they kept me smiling.
