Y’all know that I am NO expert on skiing or winter sports, but I got a lot of questions the last few years about where I got our ski clothes. The answer is Lands End and, while I answered those as they came in, NOW is the time to buy for next year!
For both boys and myself, our base layers, hats, gloves, fleece, neck wraps, pants and jackets, ALL came from Lands End. Specifically, the kids sizes. These worked perfectly for us in both Vermont and Tahoe – keeping everyone warm and dry. (Honey picked up his gear at Costco.)
I hopped on their site today to hunt down a jacket for Whit for Alaska and was thrilled to find the winter gear on sale, an additional 20% off and with free shipping on $75+. I got them both new pants (boys squall iron knee winter snow pants) and jackets (boys squall waterproof winter parks) in a size up. Pants came to around $20 each and jackets just over $31. Sizes were very limited in the little kid range, but mine are in the very largest kid sizes and were in stock. (Unfortunately, the boys wear the same size tops and Whit cannot wear John’s hand me down bottoms… that would be too easy.)
Now also seems to be the time to book ski lodging for next year. They are putting on the full court press to go again (we had originally said every other year) so we are looking at a shorter spring break trip, which is half the price of February break. If you need help booking a resort, send me an email!
