With half term holidays already under way in Europe and about to start in the UK, this marks the time for the big ski trip for many famililies.So it’s only natural that you want to make sure that the youngest members of the family are as comfortable and safe as possible - and of course, that they’re having a whole lot of fun. Childrens’ ski wear, snow toys and gadgets have come on leaps and bounds in recent years, and we’ve rounded up some of the best children’s ski gear for 2018.
Not only does a ski harness make learning to ski easier and safer for little ones, it serves the dual purpose of calming parental nerves. With this easy to use harness you can keep a close eye on your children, whether they’re making their first tentative attempts or trying a more difficult piste.
Packing a snow slider for your hols might be a bit excessive, but if you own a holiday home in the Alps it could be a great investment. As well as being usable as a regular sledge, mums and dads can pull little ones along when their legs get tired, offering a fun alternative to a buggy.
Not only does this all in one ski suit have stylish dinosaurs all over it - it’s practical too. Warm and cosy with durable waterproofing, it also has clever ‘room to grow’ legs and sleeves. They extend to accommodate growth spurts, meaning you should get at least a couple of years of wear out of it. It will be cosier than a two-piece outfit and keep the chill out admirably - no matter how many times your little one falls over in the snow!
Getting children to wrap up warm can be a herculean task, no matter how chilly the weather is outside. Finding a fun hat that they actually want to wear could go some way to solving this problem, and we think this beanie is just the trick. With a fun embroidered face and several variants available, your little one will love to wear this funky hat.
If your little ones have taken to the snow like ducks to water, perhaps it’s time to invest in property in the Alps? You’ll be able to get away whenever you like, including peak times like school holidays, and you could turn a profit renting it out too, when it’s unoccupied. If you’re thinking of investing in an Alpine property, get in touch to find out more about our property all over the French and Swiss Alps – and if arriving over half term, why not get in touch with us and arrange to visit some of our property for sale in your chosen resort ?
