Snowmaker’s Essentials Part 2: Joka Polar gloves/Channel Locks
Converting pressurized air and water into snow is a cold, wet process and it’s critical for the crews on the ground to stay dry as possible while they work. Used for over 40 years in Finland, Joka Gloves are waterproof, chemical resistant and remain dexterous in wet, freezing conditions.
These gloves are essential for snowmakers who need to withstand winter’s temps for long periods of time, while maintaining the ability to handle tools (like the Channel Locks pictured here) and manipulate other equipment.
