About Us


We founded Free the Powder to offer ski gloves of the quality and price that we ourselves had searched for, but could seemingly never find.

I’m a backcountry skier who gets cold hands easily, which means I need really warm hand protection that also provides excellent dexterity for handling gear. The problem is, warmth and dexterity are on opposite ends of glove design.

So, after 40 years in ski country as a ski racer, backcountry ski bum, mountain worker and climber I set out to find a solution to this problem. Thus began an extensive research and development odyssey in 2013.

Now, with the help of a small team of designers, leatherworkers, and a group of dedicated skiers and Ski Patrol, we have found a solution to the problem, and are proud to offer you Free the Powder Gloves.

      Thank you for buying our gloves and mittens,

      Chase & Shannon Stewart
