And for everyone who is still missing a packing list for a winter holiday with children in addition to their suit and accommodation, we have summarized all the essential points here:

The packing list for your skiing holiday with children - this is what your kids need for the slopes

- Ski helmet (can be rented in all ski areas if necessary - our favorite are the kids helmets from TSG )
- Ski goggles (for bad weather or in general)
- a snow suit
- gloves
- Ski underwear (top and pants)
- ski socks
- a thin sweater or fleece jacket
- Balaclava (for bad weather)
- slip scarf / multifunctional cloth (e.g. from Had or Buff)
- Suncream
- fat cream

ski helmet
Helmets are now compulsory in many countries, especially for children - but one way or the other, wearing a helmet is the norm to protect your head from injury. It is important that the helmet fits well! Not too tight and of course not too loose. By the way, there are also back protectors - even for children.

ski goggles
In bad weather, the goggles protect and also provide a slightly better view. UV protection is essential, especially for children's eyes on the slopes, and the radiation is significantly stronger due to the light snow.

snow suit
Snowsuits are a dime a dozen, but those that are well thought out prevail on the slopes. Which do not end up in the ski boot juice in the toilet. The keep warm. Have the pockets where you need them. Whose cap you can also pull over the helmet. that grow with you. Which have an extra layer in potential places where the children are the first to cool down when sitting or kneeling in the snow. And of course they look as great as ours!

Our favourite: Mittens, as you can see from our own creation. Why? Because all fingers are kept warm together in one "room" and can be moved. Small children's fingers stay warm longer and the gloves can be sucked longer. And of course: to prevent losing individual gloves, we have placed our mega clip directly on the suit.

ski underwear
The Onion Prince is the best idea for the slopes - not just for our children. The right ski underwear ensures that our children neither sweat nor freeze on the slopes. Because it warms when it has to and cools when it should. Good ski underwear wicks moisture away from the body, so our children always stay dry - and warm. Because especially in the ski course, there is sometimes a wait and in the worst case of doubt, you will freeze.

ski socks
Toes and fingertips first. They get cold easily and kids aren't like adults and just go through with it. Nor should they! You should feel comfortable and ski socks are a not unimportant part. What is important is the right socks and of course the right ski or snowboard boots. The kids shouldn't wear socks that are too thick, but rather socks that keep them warm, support them (especially in the shin area) and allow freedom of movement for their toes.

a thin sweater
Anyone who has a small heater in the house is in principle well prepared with good ski underwear and our snow suits, if an intermediate layer for the freezers below us is not missing, then a thin jumper or hoodie is recommended. Pay attention to natural materials that breathe!

a balaclava is a nice-to-have for icy days on the slopes when the wind is whistling around your ears. And we parents actually feel more like après-ski all day long, but our children can't get enough of the slopes. It is thin and keeps the wind from hissing everywhere.

Multifunctional cloth/scarf or hat
The smaller the child, the more suitable a combination of scarf and hat is. Once pulled over the head, ears and neck are directly protected and dwarf nose cannot rip the stuff off itself - good balaclavas usually fit in such a way that small children do not find them disturbing. A multifunctional towel is a good option for older children, these towels go with just about anything at any time. Whether it's a scarf, hair tie or headband. They are now available in so many colours, designs and fabrics that there is something for everyone - and they last for many years!

We don't really have to explain, sunscreen is not only part of the standard equipment on the beach, but also on white snow-covered glacier peaks. The sun burns hard here and is also reflected by the snow. Protect your skin and that of your children with a good sunscreen (also available in sustainable form, e.g. from ....)

fat cream
The best investment for small children against red cheeks and dry lips: the fat cream (and a labello), we swear by the wind and weather balm from Weleda . Is natural, tolerates every skin and ensures that the baby's cheeks remain soft and supple - in any wind and weather.

And now: have fun!
