Best Snowboarding Gear for Toddlers/Preschoolers
The After School Special by Burton is the perfect starter snowboard for toddlers and preschoolers. The snowboard comes with bindings and the right amount of flex and curve for little boarders. Buy the After School Special Snowboard here.
The After School Special comes with bindings! The bindings are built to hold those little feet in and are easily adjustable to hold in little feet. They are also made so that regular sturdy winter boots can be worn with them for the really young shredders (under 3 years old). If you already have a board check out the Burton Kids Unisex Grom Binding ’16 for toddlers here.
While attaching a string to the After School Special Snowboard is possible the Riglet Reel is even better. The Riglet Reel attaches to the front of the snowboard so that you can pull your toddler around. This is a great way to develope initial snowboarding balance and help the get around the hill when pushing themselves seems too challenging. Buy the Riglet Reel here.
Adjustable and small enough to fit little heads is the snowboarding helmet by K2. But… what I love most is that it also doubles as a bike helmet when you change out the padding. The extra small sizefits both our 2 and 4 year old with the adjustable settings. Buy the K2 Entity Ski Helmet here.
The Anon goggles are built for small riders. They are small enough for our 2 year old which means that she can last longer on those colder days. Buy the Burton Youth Anon Tracker Goggles here.
The Mini Grom boots by Burton must have been designed by a parent because they thought of everything. They are one of the only snowboarding boots that comes in sizes small enough for toddlers and preschoolers. Each boot also becomes a size bigger by removing a piece within the boot making them last another season for growing kids. They also happen to be one of the cheapest options on the market. Buy the BURTON Kids’ Mini-Grom Snowboard Boots here.
Mitts are always a dilema for parents of small children. Children like to pull them off or they fall off. Some mitts are not warm enough for extreme cold weather. Different mitts work for different families but the Stonz Mitts have been proven to stay on and keep hands warm in -25C weather. For the child that does not want to wear mitts the Veyo Kids Waterproof Mittens are a fun option.
A full length snowsuit for those mini shredders. The Burton Mini Shred One Piece keeps the snow out and the littles nice and warm. The best part is the stitching at the bottom can be cut so that the snow suit becomes bigger making it last another season or two! Buy the Burton Girls Minishred Illusion One Piece Jacket here.
The Lil’ Ripper Gripper is a high quality harness developed in Alberta, Canada and the only harness on the market that can be used for both snowboarders and skiiers! The harness has Buy the Lil’ Ripper Gripper Ski Harness and Snowboard Harness with Retractable Leashes and Tip Connector here.
