I know most people dread the colder months, but a friend once told me, if you embrace it and find things to do during this time, you may think otherwise. After giving it some thought, I realized how much our family loves hitting the slopes during the winter.
Year after year, I’m blown away by my children’s progress on the hills, and just how much they have grown to enjoy it! Through our years of skiing and snowboarding, I’ve realized the importance of warm weather gear for their new found snowy passion. Bottom line, if they are cold on the mountain, it ain’t fun for anyone.
When packing for the slopes, I usually have a mental checklist, to include doubles of everything. That goes for hats, gloves, scarves, snow boots, and winter pants. Conditions always vary with snow one day, and blue bird sun others, so wet gear may not dry by the following day, so having backups are an absolute must!
With kids, you can never have too many hats and gloves to keep warm, as these items seem to randomly go missing while the kids are at school or random activities. Keeping this in mind, while stocking up for the holidays at my local BJ’s Wholesale Club last weekend, I stumbled upon the cutest hat and glove sets for the kids.
I felt like I hit the jackpot when I found ZeroXposur snow pants for Siella and Gemma. Both have grown out of last year sizes, so I stocked up on a pair for each! And just as I couldn’t carry another thing, Totes snow boots were on the shelves, in sizes for all three of them.They are insulated and water resistant, ideal for the cold NYC streets, or the mountains upstate.
Initially, I planned to save some of these items to stick under the tree, but I probably need to break them out early for the snow looming in next week’s forecast!
