Outdoor Family Winter Gear Guide

The truth? Winter is our favorite season. We look forward to XC skiing, downhill skiing, sledding, yurt stays, and lots and lots of playing. We also feel that having the correct gear is even more essential in the winter to keep safe and have fun.

We compiled some of our favorite gear recommendations for a variety of activities all in one place for you. Love what you see? Thank us by clicking through those affiliate links throughout the guide to purchase. It helps us just a tiny bit to keep this site running AND hopefully makes gear shopping easier for your family too. Thanks for sharing it too! You can find ALL our gift guides right here (we will be adding to it in the coming weeks!)

REI Memberscheck out this special deal where REI will match your dividend purchases made this weekend only!

Big thanks to REI for helping sponsor this guide. However, be assured these recommendations are our own and exactly what we tell our family and friends. We are life-time members who believe in their mission to get ALL people outside.

  • Amelia lives with her husband and five young children outside of Jackson, WY in Grand Teton National Park. As a mom, she quickly learned that the secret to sanity was to spend more time outside where tantrums don't see quite so bad. Amelia started TMM in 2012 to help encourage all families (including her own) to get outside, no matter the weather. Due to the necessity of having to keep so many kids warm and happy, she has become an expert in kids' gear and loves being able to share it with others.
