Numerous pairs of ski socks

Your little one needs several pairs of socks for their skiing holiday. After a day on the slopes, they will need to be hung out to dry so you will need to get another pair out for them. Therefore, it’s a good idea to take several pairs so that they can keep swapping between them. It’s also worth getting special ski socks for their trip. After all, these are made with proper padding that will ensure your little one’s feet stay comfy while in their ski boots. Make sure they aren’t too tight so that they don’t end up with blisters after a day on their skis. But make sure they aren’t too loose either so they don’t start rubbing. You can find ski socks in any reputable sports shop on the high street.

A waterproof jacket

It’s also vital that you get your little one a good jacket which will keep them warm during the ski holiday. You want one which is waterproof so that your kid is ready for all weathers. And you need to make sure it’s not too tight, so they don’t start sweating in their jacket. And also it needs to allow them to have plenty of movement while they are using their skis. You can find these jackets in most stores; for example, moncler kids jackets are perfect for sports!


A good pair of goggles

A lot of people forget to buy some goggles for their kids. But they are essential in all weathers on the slopes. For one thing, in winter, it can help you to see where you are going. And in summer, it can protect your kids from the UV rays. If you do forget to buy goggles for your kids before your trip, you can often rent them, as well as the helmet, from your ski resort.
