The 10 Best Kids' Ski & Snowboard Pants of 2022-2023

By: Sarah Ziffer: Women's & Kid's Techwear Buyer | October 26, 2022

 

It’s every parent’s dream to share the sports they love with their kids. There’s nothing like that special feeling that comes when you watch your kids fall in love with your favorite activities. And, while good parenting, positive reinforcement, and careful planning all help make that dream a reality, it’s important to remember that the right gear makes a huge difference too. While choosing ski pants making sure your kids are warm and comfortable on the ski hill is the first step in helping them fall in love with skiing or snowboarding. The best kid’s ski and snowboard pants make this easy. They’re designed with new skiers and riders in mind, so they have reinforced panels to hold up to repeated crashes, and special fit features so they can grow with your groms. And they have the same technologies that you’d expect from adult gear as well.

New This Year:

New on the scene is Hootie Hoo, a brand focused only on making youth outerwear. This focus allows them to put all their resources into refining the fit and features of kids' gear. That, combined with other brands’ investment in more youth-specific gear means that there’s never been a better time to get some new kids' ski and snowboard pants.

Growing up in Florida, I missed out on the chance to get involved in snow sports. Tired of the heat, and seeking out the mountains, I moved to Seattle to start a new adventure. A few years after moving to WA I fulfilled my dream of learning to snowboard and immediately fell in love with it. After just one time out on a friend’s board I was hooked. I outfitted myself from head to toe with gear from evo, and got a season pass at Snoqualmie.

I quickly realized that snowboarding inspired me to live a lifestyle centered around the outdoors. I left my job at a fashion company to come and work for evo and become immersed in the culture and experiences that make the snowboarding community so vibrant. I have been at evo since 2017, am currently the women's and kids' techwear buyer, and enjoy learning and experiencing everything this incredible community has to offer.
