Sunny vacations call for a wide-brim hat to cover sensitive areas like the ears and neck. I like the San Diego Women's Ultrabraid X Large Brim Hat for its UPF 50+ protection and adjustable sizing tie, not to mention its glam J-Lo style that’s just right for the beach!
No matter what kind of snow activities you’re planning on this winter, you’ll want to make sure you have a pair of Yaktrax Walker Traction Cleats for Snow and Ice on hand. Their coils are protected against rusting and hand-wound to give you 360 degrees of traction, and can be worn in temperatures as low as -41 degrees Fahrenheit.
Keep your little one extra cozy in an adorable Jupa Toddler 2-Piece Ski Suit, that offers the warmth of a one-piece with the convenience of two separate pieces. It boasts 170g of insulation and waterproof fabric, so you can be sure baby will stay warm and dry.
It’s no secret that kids often outgrow skates before they’ve had a chance to really break them in. That’s why I like the Lake Placid Kids Nitro Ice Skates: these push button adjustable boots offer a customizable fit, with an insulated liner to keep their feet comfy and cozy.
Coasting down a snow-covered hill is always so much more fun when it’s shared with someone else! Kids (and kids at heart) will have a blast in the Kwik Tek AIRHEAD 2-Person Figure 8 Snow Tube, especially since it’s so lightweight and easy to pull up for another go around.
The Pelican Black Ice Snowboard is just right for your favorite junior snowboarder. I like that the non-skid footrests will keep him sturdy and safe, while the adjustable toe bindings allow him to take his skills up a notch when he’s ready.
Après ski or even just to run to the store on a snowy day, the faux-fur trimmed Sorel Women's Joan Of Arctic Boot is my choice for most stylish winter footwear. The waterproof upper wards off moisture, while the felt InnerBoot keeps toes toasty.
When you have wee ones, why not give them some time to train at home before they get to the big-kid rink? The Aviva 10' Kiddie Ice Rink brings the skating fun right to your backyard. Just inflate, fill with water and wait for it to freeze.
How cool is this Yamaha Fx Nytro Ultimate Snow Slope-Slider? Modeled after the famous Yamaha Apex snowmobile, its bike styling, adjustable cushioned seat and sophisticated snow brakes make for one cool ride.
Keeping cozy when you’re engaging in winter sports is an absolute must. The Terramar Women's Thermasilk Scoop Neck Top is the perfect soft and warm base layer of all-natural silk to help you maintain an even temperature. Plus, it has anti-microbial properties to resist odor build-up and is machine washable for easy care.
Cold-weather sports definitely call for the right kind of apparel, and this year, I’ve got the Schampa Coolskin Balaclava at the top of my list. This fully flat-seamed piece fits under any helmet, while the silky fabrication wicks and breathes, keeping you warm and dry during any activity.
After a long day of chilly outdoor fun, there’s nothing better than snuggling up on the couch by a roaring fire with a great book. This winter, I plan to read The Boys of Winter: The Untold Story of a Coach, a Dream, and the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team, the masterfully told tale of the legendary team's gold medal victory at Lake Placid, NY.
I think the Emsco Infant Toboggan is such a great choice for fun in the snow with baby. Its extra-high backed seat ensures your little one’s comfort and support, while raised foot-support rails and seat area keep baby well above the cold snow for a secure and safe ride.
The perfect snowball CAN be yours! Just pick up the Flexible Flyer Snowball Maker, which is designed to make a precisely round snowball in roughly a second that’s compact enough to travel far, and aerodynamic enough to be thrown accurately.
Protecting the old noggin is important for any type of outdoor activity, and I like the Smith Optics Unisex Adult Holt Snow Sports Helmet because it has customized pads for both cold and warm weather sports. Plus, it’s compatible with the Skullcandy Audio System, so you can bring your beats along for the ride.
When we can’t get out in the great outdoors, my family and I like to pop Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games in the old Wii for a little old-fashioned competitive fun. I mean, who wouldn’t want to use Donkey Kong as his avatar to go alpine skiing, speed skating, snowboarding, and bobsledding?
Get your gear to the slopes in style with this sturdy SportRack A26395 Aero 1300 Roof Box. I love that it holds up to 110 pounds of cargo, so I can bring along everything from skis and snowboards to luggage and other snow essentials.
For little ski bunnies, I recommend the Oakley Kids Snow Goggles. The thick triple-layer of polar fleece foam wicks away moisture, while anti-fog lenses make sure they can see clearly under any conditions.
After a long day out in the snow, I like to come home and make sure all my stuff is nice and dry and ready for the next day. That’s why I’m glad I have a DryGuy Gear Tree at home. It uses an ultra-powerful (but whisper quiet) rotary blower to dry out boots, pants, jacket, gloves, and a hat, all at the same time!
I plan to race down snowy hills with a sleek Paricon Winter Lightning Sled. The secret to its speed and durability? A specially molded nose and a body that’s cold-crack treated to withstand years of use in even the chilliest winter.
