Transpack Edge Jr. Boot Backpack
This water-resistant boot bag has all the same features as your own boot bag, just smaller. There’s plenty of room to stash helmet, mitts, goggles, extra layers—and the iPad, of course—in the generous central compartment. The boot pockets on each side keep the most important component of their ski kit warm and dry. $55;

K2 Illusion Helmet with LED Dome Light
Your kid’s noggin will not only be safe and comfy but also supremely visible in this helmet with the new LED Dome Light. The detachable light has two settings, flashing or steady. It’s placed on the back of the helmet so you can easily follow your grom during low-vis days. The helmet is lightweight and formfitting with an in-mold construction and a full-wrap liner for warmth. $90;

Roxy Jetty Girl Jacket and Backyard Girl Pants
The Jetty Girl is designed to keep your hot shot dry and comfortable in all conditions. It’s waterproof, insulated, and equipped with a powder skirt so snow can’t sneak in when she takes a tumble. The jacket comes in seven different patterns and four solid colors. The sleek Backyard Girl pants have an adjustable waistband to fit the growing skier. Jacket $110, pants $100;

Line Gizmo Skis
These skis were made for the little ripper who is ready to conquer the whole mountain. They feature a wood core with fiberglass reinforcement for the lightest, most controllable ride. The base and edges are 30 percent thicker than many other kids’ skis for max durability, so your kamikaze can tear up the slopes and not his planks. Dimensions: 101/80/94; lengths: 100, 113, 123, 133, 143; $300;

Full Tilt Classic Boot
The same boot the pros love has shrunk. The popular Full Tilt Classic has a unique three-piece construction that makes it super-lightweight and comfortable. The plastic tongue fully opens, eliminating the struggle of jamming little feet in. All parts of the boot can be purchased separately for repairs and a customized fit. $500;

Eddie Bauer Kids’ MicroTherm
Don’t be fooled by how thin this jacket is. It’s stuffed with 650-fill down so it offers exceptional insulation. It can be worn solo or layered under a shell for maximum warmth on the coldest of days. It’s compact and easy to tuck away if your little one needs to peel off a layer, and parents will love that it’s machine washable. $99;

Marmot Boys’ Spacewalk Jacket and Freerider Pant

This set offers thermal insulation and is truly waterproof, so your son will stay warm, dry, and fearless on the slopes. A powder skirt and extended hem in the back offer extra coverage, and the hood snaps off for warmer days. The adjustable waist and extendable cuffs on the pants will give your guy some wiggle and growing room. Jacket $155, pants $110;

Junior Polar Buff

This multifunctional headgear is perfect for fickle little skiers. It’s a neck warmer, a hat, and a fashion piece all in one. Made with breathable thermal microfiber to lock in heat and let out moisture, the Buff keeps kids dry and warm all day. Bonus: It can be worn eight different ways—probably more if your budding fashion designer has a flair for the creative. $28;
