Downhill skiing is a lifelong sport. While you can learn at any age, children have the advantage of being flexible, nimble and relatively fearless. Most ski schools will teach children as young as age 3. With good instruction, many children can ski independently on a beginner slope in just a few days.
Speaking from experience, never underestimate the weather. A bluebird day can turn into full-on winter conditions in the time it takes to ride the chairlift. The beauty of downhill skiing is that you’re always close to a lodge—but with a beginning skier, getting down the mountain can take time.
So if you’re looking for a proper ski outfit this winter, there is just no getting around molo’s ‘Urban Active’ and ‘Urban Classic’ collection. Both collections are products of years of development and testing to ensure high quality and highly functional outerwear that lives up to the highest standards for quality and safety. In other words, whether your child uses the outerwear for daily play and activities or whether it is for dynamic ski activity, you are guaranteed a performance level above the ordinary. Besides a high level of waterproofing and breathability, both series are lined with 3M Thinsulate insulation, which means that the outerwear is both lighter and warmer, allowing for more movement and comfort.
There are no less than 16 colour variations in snowsuits for winter 2014! There are contrasting colours that are dominated by deep, warm tones and icy cold nuances. Look for the season’s most important colours, ’Grape Wine’ and ’Bottle Green,’ in the Urban series. These colour stories can be mixed with great effect with the all-over digital prints like the new ‘Girly Rainbow’ and ‘Deers’ for girls as well as ‘ Winter Landscape’ for boys. The camouflage inspired unisex print, ‘Pixel Camo,’ has funky details that transform the outerwear into distinctly boy or distinctly girl looks. And for a strong, surprising addition to the outerwear programme, look for ‘Space Neon,’ which lights a spark under the more neutral colours.
