Snowboarders spend more time with their hands in the snow than do skiers. Shouldn't it then follow that gloves made for skiers and snowboarders should be different? Well, they are.
Snowboard gloves are generally made with more layers on the palm and underside of the fingers than ski gloves. Also, many snowboard gloves are longer than ski gloves with extra waterproof fabric to come up over the edges of the boarder's jacket.
This extra feature of snowboard gloves helps keep snow from finding its way into the boarder's gloves when their hands are in the snow.
