The first priority of kids’ snow clothing is to keep them warm. Nothing dampens a child’s enthusiasm like a frigid, windy day dressed in inadequate clothing. From jackets and pants to socks and mittens to hats and long underwear, kid’s ski and snowboard clothing should be insulated, waterproof and breathable. Jackets should be hip length to prevent snow from getting in at the waist. Make sure your kids’ ski clothing has a helmet-compatible hood, because no self-respecting parent is going to turn their kid loose on today’s crowded slopes without adequate head protection. Another feature to look for in kids’ snowboard clothing is grow cuffs, which grant another season of use when you let out the sleeves and legs. Still, prices being what they are, it’s best to look to shop for good values on kids’ snowsport clothing from brands like Marker, White Sierra and Rossignol.
