1. Layer Up
One thick jumper is less effective
and less practical than a number
of fine wool or thermal ones.
2. Mighty Mittens Put small kidsí mittens on elastic through jackets. Lost gloves means cold hands.
3. Lids on kids Helmets are about safety first but
with a large percentage of heat lost
through our heads they help keep kids
surprisingly warm too. Add a fine
balaclava underneath on cold days.
4. Borrow, don't buy Borrowing from friends is a good idea;
ski gear is expensive and kids grow fast.
But make sure older gear still meets
waterproof and thermal standards.
5. Cocoa power Donít underestimate the power of a hot
chocolate stop. Go inside before chills set in.
6. NEVER buy cheap ski socks Warm feet are vital.
