While cleaning off my snow-covered car this morning, I realized that my hands were awfully cold as I was not wearing gloves (you see, every season I manage to lose at least two pairs of gloves). Ironically enough, Iâ€™m also skilled at breaking snow-scrapers every season, so I was without one of those as well. I had to resort to my bare hands to get the job done.
Suddenly, I began to imagine what it might be like if I had a pair of warm gloves on and how my morning might have been different. Who knows!? Perhaps I might have been able to feel my hands or even have had some kind of dexterity in my fingers for the remainder of the day so that I could type this little anecdote with little to no pain. Had I been the proud owner of some brand new, and did I mention FREE, Dakine GORE-TEX gloves, my day at the Freeskier office would have been abundant with cheer and even excitement.
Luckily for you, thereâ€™s still hope that you might be able to keep your hands toasty and dry this winter, and as an added bonus, also make sure that those oh-so-important extremities look sexy and powerful gripping those poles. I have a feeling the ladies might be into it.
For the next month or so, Dakine will continue to give away a pair of their Method Series Stingray GORE-TEX gloves every week. Basically theyâ€™re giving them away like candy, and if youâ€™re not in the mood for some sugar, well you should be! Only a crazy person would neglect from entering this competition. How can you lose with free gloves? News flash, you canâ€™t.
So, sign up and stay warmâ€¦your hands will thank you later
Head over to community.freeskier.com/contests/dakine/ before mid-January and make sure that your hands feel appreciated and even, dare I say, fashionable.
