If you want to get the children excited why not invest in a helmet cover for them to wear? Keeping children safe on the slopes is of utmost importance so wearing a helmet is a must.

However, there is no reason that you can’t make wearing a helmet fun, particularly if you come up with any resistance. A funky helmet cover might make life a whole lot easier.

Helmet covers come in a whole range of colours, and you can even get animals, monsters or angry birds!

A Waterproof Camera for the Children

You can invest in a good waterproof camera to make sure that you capture all the family skiing action while out on the slopes. A waterproof camera is a good idea in the snow as if it accidentally gets dropped and wet, you know the family snaps will still be safe.

If you want to nominate one of your little ones to be in charge of documenting the family holiday then why not try the VTech Kidizoom Fun Cam? This doubles up as both a waterproof camera and camcorder, which can be worn as a head torch and is easy to use – suitable for ages 5-12 years.

GoPro Hero 4 Black Video Camera


GoPro cameras are known for their rugged, mountable high definition camera features – perfect for serious skiers keen to capture the more exhilarating moments on the slopes. Although slightly pricey (these cameras start from £409.99) the GoPro Hero 4 Black is one of the best out there for capturing your family ski sessions.

The camera can even record at 4K (super high definition) at 30 frames per second which allows you to playback your recordings in Full HD – and even in slow motion! The camera, although primarily used for video, can even take photos at 8.3 Megapixels, which rivals good digital cameras!
