Family fun on the slopes: a guide to renting ski & snowboard gear for young families

There's nothing quite like seeing your little ones' eyes light up at the sight of a snow-covered hill. Planning a ski or snowboard trip with young kids can be a delightful adventure. The key to a smooth and enjoyable experience? Choosing the right rental gear for your family's youngest members!


Choosing the right gear for little ones

For the tiny skiers and snowboarders in your family, getting the right size and fit is crucial. Look for skis and snowboards that are specifically designed for children – they're lighter and easier to maneuver. When it comes to boots, comfort is king. Ensure they fit snugly but don't pinch those little toes.

Safety gear is even more critical for kids. Helmets are a must, and you might also want to consider wrist guards for snowboarders and knee pads for skiers. Goggles are essential too, protecting those precious eyes from both the sun and snow.

Where to rent kid-friendly gear

Finding the right rental shop is key. Check out to find the best rental deals for kid-friendly wintersports equipment. Many local rental shops have knowledgeable staff who can help fit your child properly.
