We don’t mean to make a mountain out of a bunny hill, but ski vacations with kids can get steep.
Before the whole thing heads downhill, check out Rent Snow Clothes, a new online shop that leases high-quality kids’ ski apparel for a fraction of what it would cost to buy.
Outfitting your kids from hats to socks runs $100 for eight days. Or fill in the gaps by ordering individual items a la carte. The jackets, ski bibs, base layers, mittens, and toppers are all by The North Face, so your kids won’t look mismatched (or neglected) on the slopes.
Rentals are in four- or eight-day increments, and the company ships to anywhere in the United States. When your vacay is over, drop the gear in the mail and send it back.
All the items are inspected and cleaned between skiers (a little birdie told us the wares are new this season), so you get the goods in peak condition.
Available online at rentsnowclothes.com, $5-$100, plus shipping.
