And what about staying outside all day?
Another type of cold weather is the real one we all know from fairy tales and winter postcards. And some of us can see it from the windows every year. Glittering snow covers the whole horizon, everything is white and the frost reaches deep to the bottom of rivers and ponds. But even in such cold weather there are those who have to fulfil their professional obligations and go outside even in the worst frosts. In the forest, we can happen to meet hunters looking around their hunting grounds, replenishing animal feed and guarding the holy peace that the winter forest abounds in. And because they stay outside all day, warm woolen gloves are just as important for them as hiking boots and binoculars, which they use to explore the entire forest.
A little further on in the ski resort, we can come across people eager with anticipation for the whole year, looking forward to putting their ski boots on and going down a groomed ski slope. When staying on the slope all day long, snow can get behind the neck, and those less able have a lot of falls, fortunately into the soft snow. If skiers went up the slope without their woolen gloves on, they’d certainly not be saved even by the warm tea they enjoy after a few rides down at the bistro. Fortunately, everyone on the slope is wearing insulated gloves that snow just can’t soak that easily.
