A heating system that provides long lasting and all-encompassing heat to the hands of a skier or snowmobile/motorcycle user. A power source, such as a battery, is secured within a hollow portion of each handgrip. In the wired version, a conduit passes through the wrist strap attached to each ski pole handgrip and connects with each glove, where conductive wires sewn into the glove fabric carry the power to strategically placed heating elements also sewn into the glove fabric, which in turn provides heat to the skier's hands. The wireless version features an interface and various contact points between the gloves and handgrips, and may be applied to both ski poles and handlebars of snowmobiles and motorcycles.
