Make sure you are in the know when it comes to finding the best places for buying children’s skiwear!
Taking your children on a family skiing holiday is an exciting time for all of you. If it is their first time, or they have grown out of (or worn out!) their old skiing clothes and accessories, you might well be on the lookout for new gear.
Keeping your children warm and dry when enjoying the slopes, as well as out and about in your ski resort, will naturally be a priority. Cosy, waterproof, comfortable clothing is essential to ensure your children get the most out of their skiing holiday, and, perhaps most importantly, want to come back again!
There are an overwhelming number of places where you can buy skiwear for children, and you will no doubt want to make sure what you choose not only provides your child with the utmost in comfort and protection but also is durable, high quality and great value.
With this in mind, we have done the research for you, and come up with our top 5 best places for buying children’s skiwear. We love all these businesses for their excellent range, care and attention and fantastic quality products.
All items from the Muddy Puddles’ kids ski wear range have been carefully designed to offer children the best possible comfort and protection. From bright and cosy ski jackets to super soft base layers and a fantastic variety of hats, socks and gloves, Muddy Puddles has everything you need to kit your child out for the slopes.
With practical details such as waterproof and windproof material, along with thoughtful extras such as reflective logos and clever zipped pockets for essentials such as your child’s ski pass (and sweets!), Muddy Puddles clearly understands what parents are looking for when it comes to buying children’s ski gear.
Muddy Puddles’ new range, catering for children aged 0-12, demonstrates their belief in the importance of children having the right kit to safely enjoy outdoor activities.
Alex and Alexa offers a top of the range collection of high quality ski wear for children. From adorable, yet practical ski jackets, to cosy fleeces in all colours of the rainbow, as well as all in one’s, boots, bags, and all the accessories you might need, it’s no wonder that Alex and Alexa won ‘Best Kids Fashion for Holidays’ category in the 2016 Family Traveller Awards! (Pssst…we won the ‘Best Family Ski Operator’ category at these awards last year)!
Alex and Alexa offer a range of designer items including ski wear from Helly Hansen, Armani Junior and Barts … so if you are looking to kit your children out in style, then this is the place to shop.
Of course, you might not want to splash your cash on expensive ski wear for your children just yet. We all know how quickly children grow, and you may also want to make sure that they love skiing as much as you do before investing in all the gear.
With that in mind, we simply love Skismart – who have come up with the clever idea of offering premium branded ski wear for hire (and are the only company in the UK to do so).

The High Street & Supermarkets
Of course, when it comes to buying children’s skiwear that is brilliant value, sometimes you simply cannot beat the high street. Most of these stores have online outlets. However, there are also some great shops on the high street for children’s ski gear.
Trespass, Decathlon, Sports Direct and TK Maxx are fantastic places to look and TK Maxx in particular offer some great deals on last years skiwear so you can get designer ski clothes at a fraction of the price.
Perhaps surprisingly you can also sometimes find some great value skiwear in the supermarkets.
