Next up are the pants. Every woman knows how hard it can be to take an impromptu bathroom break, and a snowsuit makes this as awkward as it gets! Always look for women’s snowmobile pants with a drop seat or zippers that go all the way up to the waistband to easily answer nature’s call.
GLOVES & BOOTS
Since hands and feet get cold the quickest, you need to choose gloves and boots carefully. Fit is important here, so make sure to try both items on before you ride. Insulated gloves or mitts are best for trail riding, and when deep snow riding, look for lightweight or uninsulated gloves that are still windproof and waterproof. A long gauntlet glove is great to have in case you need to dig yourself out in a pinch — that way, you won’t get snow down your sleeve.
Some unisex gloves fit great, but if your hands are small, you may want a pair made specifically for women. Plus, when a glove’s fit is snug, you can feel confident in your grip on the handlebars. Some riders prefer a lightly insulated palm, which allows them to feel the heat of the handlebars — if your ride has that feature — and maintain a strong grip.
