Every year we go skiing in Park City for Christmas, and it’s one of my favorite holiday traditions. We’ve taken James since he was born, but last year was the first time that he was old enough to take ski lessons. He loved skiing and made some major strides on vacation, so we decided to continue with lessons this winter. There’s a family ski mountain not far from us where he’s been taking ski lessons every weekend. While it’s been a great socially distanced activity that he can do (and well worth the hour drive each way!), it’s been cold and snowy here, which means we’ve really needed to up our ski gear game. Since he’ll be spending so much time skiing this winter, I decided to invest in some quality toddler ski gear and clothes that he can use this season and then pass down to his sister.
I want to make sure he’s warm and dry so he really enjoys it, and learns to love skiing as much as we do, and of course, I want him to be safe, so finding good toddler ski gear was really important to me. And let’s be real: is there anything cuter than a little kid in their snow gear. I am also fine investing in items that the next kid(s) can wear, but considering how short a shelf life James’ clothes have and how fast he grows, I also don’t want to spend a bajillion dollars on toddler ski gear. I did some research to find toddler ski gear and clothes for James that will get him through this ski season and hopefully, if we’re lucky, into the next one — and but are neutral and durable enough that Charlotte can wear, too.
Here are my favorite options for toddler ski gear and clothes.
