Spyder Jacket From Little Terra

As well as looking great, ski gear needs to keep youngsters warm and safe

A holiday in the winter wonderland of a ski resort can be a magical experience that will be remembered by the whole family for years to come.

If you want your youngsters to have the time of their lives, however, and to catch the winter sports bug forever, it is vital they are kitted out in funky, functional, warm and safe gear.

Little Terra, the online specialist in outdoor clothing and accessories for children, has brought in a host of new ranges for this season – and the experts there have come up with a mantra for parents thinking of hitting the slopes with the family: Be safe, Be seen, Be warm.

Ski helmets are essential, and increasingly they are required by law for children. Little Terra has put together a range from brands such as Scott and Manbi where fun meets functionality, while helmet cover designs including Little Devil and Butterfly ensure youngsters are only too happy to wear safety gear all day.

Eye protection is a must on the slopes, no matter what the weather, and all Little Terra’s goggles and sunglasses block all potentially harmful UVA and UVB rays – and fresh designs from Loubsol, Scott and BabyBanz mean your children will look the part, whether they are toddlers or teenagers.

If you want your children to be happy on the slopes all day, and desperate to snap the skis back on in the morning, they need to be warm and comfortable.

Base layers and socks are a great start, topped off with the coolest ski pants and jackets around from big name brands such as Spyder, Columbia, O’Neill and Dare 2Be. With Little Terra’s help, you can also have the coolest but warmest kids in town after the last run down the mountain.

Snow boots are ideal for lounging around cafes at the bottom of the slopes and kicking along snow-lined streets, while super-stylish hats, gloves and mitts from Barts, Jack Wolfskin, Spyder, Scott and Dare 2Be will keep young fingers warm long into the night.

Carolyn Budding, children’s clothing buying specialist at Derbyshire-based, said: “As well as looking great, ski gear needs to keep youngsters warm and safe.

“Good quality clothing provides protection from falls and low temperatures, and eye-catching designs mean you can spot your children easily on a crowded piste.

“The ranges we are carrying this year look fabulous, but they will also help young skiers and boarders be safe, be seen and be warm.”
