Planning your first family ski trip is not an easy task, and knowing the equipment you need to take with you can be extremely difficult - particularly if you are travelling with children. From base layers to accessories, not to mention boots and the skis themselves, there really is a lot to remember.

At Ski & Trek, we know how stressful it can be preparing for your first trip to the slopes, and we are dedicated to making this process as simple as possible for mums and dads. This month, we’ve been taking a look at some of our amazing prices on Dare 2b ski clothing, and this world famous brand caters for children too.

Winter sports must-haves

Finding the right ski trousers in the correct size is absolutely essential to ensure you and your family are comfortable, warm and dry when spending a long period of time outside. Salopettes are an ideal choice for kids as they fit snugly and ensure youngsters are protected from the snow at all times. This white pair from our brand of the moment include 5K Ared V02 Technology, which will not only keep your child dry, but also allow them to comfortably move around.

A suitable ski jacket that is both warm and functional is a must-buy before your first family ski trip. It can often be frustrating for parents though, as kids usually outgrow their gear before the next holiday comes around. For this reason, it is essential to find something that is both high quality and affordable, such as this Theorize Jacket, which is versatile enough to be worn as a functional winter jacket back home. It is finished with water-repellent technology and is well insulated for warmth, providing the perfect level of protection against the elements.

So, you’ve got all necessary gear required for a warm and comfortable day in the mountain, but don’t forget the key accessories too. A hat is a must-have, so we’d recommend this cool kids beanie from Dare 2b.


There is no denying that planning any sort of family holiday can be extremely stressful, particularly when you have more than one child to consider. Luckily, at Ski & Trek we like to think we are clued up on what our customers really want - and for this reason we are the proud suppliers of family ski bundles that ensure you don’t have to worry about anything other than improving your skills on the piste.
