As the northern hemisphere’s snow season kicks off, it’s time to explore some of the best gear to keep kids happy. Whether it’s gloves that can allow teenagers to stay connected, or fun, fast sledges for all the children to enjoy when the skiing stops for the day, Nichola West rounds up her favourite snow gear for kids.


Beartek gloves

Teenagers in particular will love these Bluetooth snow gloves that allow them to stay connected whilst on the slopes. They’ll be able to take calls from their smartphones or control their music on the piste without having to take their gloves off.



Starting the day glowing warm is sure to keep children happy in a winter wonderland, and these backpacks that heat up are the perfect solution. Keep ski or snowboard boots, along with gloves, hats, and socks, at a toasty temperature, ready to warm up your toes as you start the day.



This Minions ski kit is the perfect starter set for younger children ready to get on the slopes. Who could resist the happy little characters keeping you company as you get to grips with your snowplough?



For some time off the skis, kids aged six and upwards will love this Hamax sledge, which fits perfectly into a suitcase. With its smooth flat underside, it gives a really fast slide and has two pairs of handles so you can enjoy it with a friend. The monster designs are great fun too.
