Destination: Cervinia

Bright, cute and preppy is the order of the day for snow bunnies enjoying this picturesque ski resort in Italy.

Label we love: Moncler Enfant


"Italian style for the Italian mountains."


We recommend: ice skating with pizza to follow!


Skates On in Cervinia

Cervinia, located in the north-west of Italy, is a fantastic place to take kids skiing. With slopes to suit all abilities, plenty of entertainment for younger kids in the play park at Cretaz, and sledding runs for the whole family to enjoy, there really is something for everyone.


Now, a trip to the Italian mountains wouldn't be complete without a delicious pizza to fuel them after a stint on the slopes. Lino's après-ski restaurant is the place to be for hungry kids (and parents too). Nestled amongst Cervinia's snow-capped peaks, it comes highly recommended, and you can even enjoy a spin on the ice rink next door before your pepperoni-with-extra-cheese arrives. For their skiwear, why not kit them out in high-spec brand Moncler Enfant for a touch of Italian style? Its down-padded coats are perfect for keeping the cold out and look great layered over a chic, cosy knit as they wind down under the gaze of the stunning Matterhorn mountain.

Destination: Trysil

Skiwear full of colour, personality and high-tech credentials is perfect for this family-friendly ski destination in Norway.

Label we love: Molo


We recommend: a magical sleigh ride with huskies.


“Keep the snow out with a cosy all-in-one.”


Snow Sledding in Trysil

Norway's largest ski resort, Trysil, is super popular with families who love this 69-slope destination that boasts 31 lifts and blissfully short queues. There is a large family area where the local mascot, a huge fluffy snowman called Valle, keeps everyone smiling along with plenty of other après-ski activities to entertain kids of all ages.


If you're looking for a change from skiing, how about a magical husky-pulled sleigh ride through stunning Norwegian snowscapes? Be sure to wrap up warm, as this activity will take them right into the elements. We recommend tapping into those Nordic design values with eye-catching skiwear from Molo, which will keep them highly visible, incredibly comfortable and well insulated for hours of fun.

Destination: Chamonix

They'll fit in like the locals in these chic, monochrome ski separates. But don't worry, they'll never be too cool for ski school.

Label we love: Balmain


"When in France, match your accessories to your skiwear."


We recommend: taking the mountain train.


All Aboard in Chamonix

You might not think of sophisticated Chamonix as a child-friendly ski destination, but this resort has plenty on offer for the junior snow set. La Poya and Le Brévent are ideal for outings with fledgeling skiers, and for a change of scenery, Chamonix's Alpine Coaster is great fun for little thrill-seekers. 


If you're looking to explore Chamonix's stunning landscapes at a more leisurely pace, how about hopping on the iconic Montenvers railway for a different kind of mountain adventure? Enjoy a 20-minute journey aboard this famous bright-red train which takes passengers through spectacular panoramic scenes at an altitude of 1,913m. We can't imagine a cuter photo opportunity, the kids all snuggled up in Balmain's monochrome ski collection, framed by the beautiful Mont Blanc mountain range. Add to that a pair of iconic Moon Boots and IZIPIZI's ski goggles and they'll be ready for every other picture-perfect moment too.
