Top 5 Tips for Family Fun on the Slopes!

As skiers and riders, we want our kids to love skiing and riding as much as we do.

How do you ensure that the youngest members of your family have a great day on the slopes and trails?

Here are a few tips:

  1. Make sure your children are dressed properly in water-and-wind-resistant clothing

    made for skiing and riding. A warm coat, pants and mittens or gloves are a must, as is a helmet for downhill skiing or riding. There are many stores in the Valley that offer winter gear (often at outlet prices too!), including the LL Bean Factory Store, Joe Jones’ Sun & Ski Sports, Bob & Terry’s Sports Outlet, Olympia Sports and EMS. Or stop by the ski shop at any of Mt. Washington Valley’s ski resorts or XC centers where you’ll find winter gear made for kid-comfort.

  2. Get the kids professionally fitted for boots and skis so that they have the best equipment possible. If you’d prefer to rent equipment for the season, you can check with Stan & Dan’s, Bob & Terry’s, Joe Jones’ or Great American Ski Renting Company in North Conway and your favorite ski resort or XC center for rentals. A season-long rental at Bob & Terry’s Sports Outlet comes complete with a kid’s season pass to Bretton Woods too.
  3. Bring snacks! Grumbling stomachs lead to grumpy skiers and riders, so fill your pockets with easily accessible and easy-to-open snacks for the kids to munch on throughout the day. If you keep your kids fully fueled and energized, they’ll be more likely to enjoy their time out in the snow.
  4. Sign up for a kids’ lesson. All ski resorts and XC centers offer lessons that are age-appropriate and meant to teach your children the building blocks of the sport in a safe environment with certified instructors.
  5. Go have fun in the snow with them! Let the kids see how much you enjoy being out on your skis and boards, and they’ll soon love it too. Bring along the video camera so you can relive the fun afterward too.
