That doesn't sound too bad. I've been in -33 in Val Thorens with some
old Goretex gloves and was fine.

I did have silk under gloves on though


So did I.

I reckon I should be looking at some top-of-the-range mitts. What do
people suggest? Ideally tryable-on in the UK, but I'd settle for mail
order XLs.

As it happens, I very rarely feel the need for anything warmer than
'normal' ski gloves even in those temperatures, using simple leather
ones unless it's absolutely ****ing it down, ordinary goretext ones if
it is. For real warm-weather stuff I've just bought some deerskin
gardening gloves. Incredibly lightweight, should be perfect.

Exactly that. I have some thick leather unlined rodeo gloves which I
use for warm weather. You still need gloves on even in T-shirt weather
and insulated gloves are hot and sweaty. I took mine off once and only
once and sliced open my hand on the ski for my trouble.
