About Us : The story of Free the Powder Gloves


Premium quality ski gloves are just too expensive. And most are not warm enough, tough enough, and versatile enough to use every day.

My wife and I founded Free the Powder Gloves to do something about that. Our dream was to design and make ski gloves that were better in every way, AND much less expensive.

I’ve spent my entire life in ski country, as a youth ski racer, a backcountry ski bum and mountain climber. Shannon discovered skiing like so many of you, later in life, but it was love at first turn. We set out together in 2013 on an extensive research and development odyssey. Our goal was to find and test every material and design aspect of ski gloves. But we had an even tougher challenge - figure out how to offer our gloves at a much lower price. And that’s where Shannon’s background in manufacturing came in.

Now with the help of a small team of designers, leatherworkers, and a group of dedicated backcountry skiers and ski patrol, we bring you Free the Powder Gloves.


Thank you for buying our gloves and mittens,


Chase & Shannon Stewart
