Mittens tend to be warmer than gloves because your fingers generate more heat when they're not separated from each other by fabric, as they are with gloves. They aren't as dexterous as gloves but they can still serve you well when you're holding a water bottle, carving down the mountain, or heading out for a hike in frigid temperatures.
If you suffer from Raynauds - mittens are almost always a better option in colder temps.
