Pint-Size Gear That Performs

When it comes to on mountain attire, locals of every age gravitate toward gear that is both functional and fashionable. In addition to what's mentioned here, young Aspenites are fond of Obermeyer ski pants and POC helmets. The North Face is another good option for durable snow pants. Also, look for gloves that have space, or even a special pocket for, hand warmers–they make chilly days all the more enjoyable.
