Becoming a parent is one of the most-rewarding experiences you can have. However, little ones have a tendency to change your life drastically—making that spontaneous trip up to the mountains for a powder day more elusive. Rather than scrapping the outing, it’s just as easy to incorporate the kids into your mountain adventure… especially with the right equipment.
Check out these four pieces of gear to ensure that your children get to enjoy winter in the mountains as much as you do…
If your outdoor pursuits can’t be accomplished with your child on wheels or skis, then toss them on your back with Osprey’s top-of-the-line child carrier. The Osprey Poco Premium is excellent for day hikes in the mountains, for allowing your little one to take in the sites and sounds of a mountain town music festival or any other light outdoor adventure.
This tricked-out pack comes with a detachable daypack, lightweight changing pad, a drool guard, hydration sleeve and a cell phone pocket on one of the shoulder straps. A host of adjustable straps and suspension make for a comfortable and safe pursuit for both parent and child.
