• Look year-round for discounted, high-quality alpine clothing and gear, such as helmets. Take advantage of deals and buy ski pants, jackets, underlayers, or socks in sizes that your children will eventually grow into.
  • Choose clothing, especially ski jackets and pants, in neutral colors, like black or red, whenever possible so you can more easily pass them down from one child to another of either gender when an item is outgrown. For the younger years, boys’ and girls’ apparel sizes are usually similar.
  • Get to know other ski families and personally borrow, swap, or trade used gear. //
