baby ski suits: our recommendations
Introducing baby ski suits
The good news for skiers with kids is that there is a variety of baby ski suits to choose from. There is now no reason at all why babies or toddlers can’t accompany you on your winter sports holiday.
Naturally, the biggest drawback of any skiing resort is the temperature. Baby ski suits will keep youngsters well insulated, as well as protecting them from sunshine that can often be deceptively fierce. Clad in a ski suit, babies will enjoy the sight of snow. If they’re feeling comfortable within their environment, they can begin exploring, getting familiar with the smell and texture of snow. Ski suits are therefore a great way to build confidence.
Is a baby in a ski suit suitable to take skiing?
The actual ski slopes are unsuitable for babies. Occasionally, continental skiers can be seen skiing with a baby in a back-pack, but this is not to be recommended, even if you consider yourself an expert.
