Some advice from one parent to another: Don't skimp on your kid’s ski gloves. All the hot chocolate in the world will not salvage a ski day where your youngest suffered mild frostbite on his/her digits. That said, you don’t have to spend a fortune on toasty fingers. Here are five options that can handle the coldest day on the hill, regardless of your budget.
Columbia Whirlbird Mitten ($30)
Columbia lines this waterproof mitten with their Omni-Heat Reflective layer for next level toastiness at a budget-friendly price.
Burton Vent Glove ($35)
I love how this glove allows you to add hand warmers or vent excess heat, which is key when you get them dressed to the nines and it ends up being 45 degrees and sunny.
Outdoor Research Adrenaline Gloves ($40)
An extra long cuff with a wrist strap that cinches down keeps the heat in and the snow out of these well-insulated, waterproof gloves.
Gordini Maverick Junior ($65)
Hestra Heli Ski Jr. ($100)
Hestra's Heli Ski Junior has a bomber goat leather exterior with a removable insulated liner, which dries super fast when it’s out of the shell.
