Wooden Skis

With no metal edges and a plastic binding that fits just about any winter boot, LUCKY BUMS' HEIRLOOM COLLECTION YOUTH WOODEN SKIS ($70; luckybums.com) are the perfect starter skis for sledding hills or snowy trails. Tip: Start out using Lucky Bums' Ski Trainer leash system ($40); a grab loop on the back of the harness makes it easy to offer guidance and prevent hard falls.
