    1. A pair of L.L.Bean Cold Buster snow pants that come in both little kids' and kids' sizes so you can stock up for your whole brood because these are sure to be a staple for snow days to come.

    LL Bean

    Promising review: "My son and daughter LOVE these snow pants. Last year my son complained that he couldn't move in his snow pants as they were too 'puffy,' so this year I took a lot of time researching before buying. These pants are warm without being bulky — which is important for two active children. The quality is fantastic and I can see them lasting a long time. I love the velcro adjustable waistband, as both of my children are slim so being able to adjust the fit is great. These pants are excellent and approved by my five-year-old." —SnowNovice

    Get it from L.L.Bean for $59 (available in little kids' sizes 4–7, kids' sizes 8–18, and three colors).

    2. A pair of Columbia Bugaboo snow pants that your little bugaboos will look forward to pulling on at the first sign of snowfall.


    Promising review: "I LOVE these snow pants! I came across these pants a few years ago due to the fact that every time my kids came in from playing in the snow, they were soaking wet and freezing. Their water-resistant pants were just NOT cutting it. I researched and found these Columbia Kids Bugaboo snow pants and put them to the test (or at least my kids did!) After hours upon hours of building snow forts, sledding, and wrestling in the snow, I have to say these pants hold up! My kids are both DRY AND WARM. I am a huge fan of these snow pants! Worth every penny spent!" —KatieG

    Get it from Columbia for $75 (available in sizes XXS–XL, approx. sizes 4–18, and 11 colors).

    3. A pair of fleece-lined snow pants that come with the most adorable prints (unicorns! dinosaurs!) so your kid will be the dopest on the slope, as well as staying toasty warm and dry.,

    Promising review: "These are the best snow pants I have found for my toddlers. They are not big and bulky like the common overall type of snow pants. My kids can barely walk in the overall type of snow pants! I love that these are fleece-lined because they help my kids stay warm. They have an elastic band at the bottom that I put around their snow boots which allows them to stay dry. They are a little pricey for us so I ordered a size 5T for my average heighted 3-year-old and size 4T for my smaller 2-year-old. I am aiming to get a couple of years use out of them. We've used them everyday for the last two weeks due to the constant snow around our area and the kids have been staying dry and warm and are loving that they can run around so easily now!" —Amazonaaddicct

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in toddlers' sizes 1T–5T, kids' sizes 6–10, and 15 designs/colors).

    4. A cargo snow pant with articulated knees, to give increased range and mobility to the kiddo with endless energy who can't wait to jump into the biggest snow pile they can find.,

    Promising review: "Living in Florida, it's not that easy to get ski gear, especially at short notice. Figured I'd have a look on Amazon, see what they had. There's actually a really nice selection of ski pants for boys (I ordered three different types). Having tried all three pairs on my 11-year-old, we decided the type with attached braces (suspenders I think they're called in the US?) were not right for him. He chose these because he liked the design. When we were in Keystone, we had loads of snow and a great week skiing. Loads of snow mean the bottoms of your trousers come into contact with it constantly. The only time my son complained of being wet, was when he forgot to tuck the inner waterproof layer inside his boots and he got snow inside them. He was constantly sitting in snow, building snowmen, sliding down slopes, and leaping into big piles of powder and he never once got wet and never complained he had cold legs. He didn't wear anything other than underwear and ski socks underneath them. Highly recommend these." —S. Hart

    Get it from Amazon for $26.23+ (available in sizes XS–XL and plus size, and seven colors).

    5. A cargo snow pant that comes with double-layered knee reinforcement so you don't have to worry about your kiddo being as rough and tumble as they want., Amazon

    Promising review: "Wow. These are great snow pants! I was very impressed with the quality and durability! I have never purchased this brand before so I wasn't sure what to expect, but my daughter who is five is very rough on snow pants and so far these have held up remarkably well!" —janell

    Get it from Amazon for $46.98+ (available in kids' sizes 5–20 and 17 colors).

    6. A kids' snow pant if you need an affordable, simple pair that gets the job done, so you don't get stuck with the job of blow-drying your toddler dry when they come in from the cold.

    Dick's Sporting Goods

    Promising review: "Bought this for my tween. Went skiing for a weekend and I didn't want to spend a fortune for pants I know he'll outgrow by next winter. They did their job, kept him warm and dry. Couldn't ask for a better price." —LSilva

    Get it from Dick's Sporting Goods for $29.99 (available in youth sizes S and M).

    7. A pair of kids' ski pants with adjustable, removable suspenders that will stay put so your kid won't come inside from playing in the snow looking like they got into a fight with a Yeti.


    Promising review: "My daughter already owns two Reima ski jackets and the Proxima pants were a needed addition. It is so well made, warm and functional. The sizing is true to the description that there is room for growth, so I am happy with that! She will be 13 in the coming winter and I bought a size 13 which is big enough for a couple of seasons." —Patti F.

    Get it from Reima for $79.95 (available in toddler sizes 2T–5T, youth sizes 6–14, and seven colors).

    8. An REI mountain pant with microfleece lining, and a grow-cuff feature so your rambunctious tot won't outgrow these after just one winter.


    Promising review: "Great for multi-outdoor use. Use for cool wet weather, alone, or layer with warm tights for cold snowy adventures. Very adjustable." —Alblom

    Get it from REI for $74.95 (available in kids' sizes 4–18 and two colors).

    9. A pair of North Face insulated snow pants designed for all the frolicking, kicking, jumping, and playing your kid wants to do, all while keeping moisture (and tantrums) at bay.

    The North Face

    Promising review: "This is our third set of NF kids' sets. They generally last two seasons, even with a lot of rough and tumble! Great design, my kiddo loves the style. Worth the extra cost for a really, REALLY warm set and superior waterproofing. We live in Wisconsin which has A LOT of winter. It's great!!" —Wisconsin Mom

    Get it from The North Face for $99 (available in kids' sizes XXS–XL, approx. sizes 5–18, and five colors).

    10. An insulated snow bib with adjustable suspenders to ensure no snow is getting into your tot's pants, no matter how much they roll around in it.

    Helly Hansen

    Promising review: "I started buying my daughter these ski pants when she was two years old, and I would never switch to any other brand!!!! She has never complained about being cold in her Helly Hansen gear. Even when we are out ice fishing and there are sometimes puddles of water on top of the ice she plays for hours and comes in still dry!!!! I will continue to buy this for her forever!!!!" —Guest

    Get it from Helly Hansen for $100 (available in kids' sizes 86"—152", approx. ages 1–12, and six colors).

    11. A pair of Columbia Ice Slope pants with all the features you'd need for a growing tyke, like an adjustable Velcro waist, an Outgrown stretch system, and warm insulation., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are great snow pants, and you can tell the designers did their homework! The pants are generously cut to allow for base layers underneath. There are velcro tabs at the waist to tighten the waistband a bit. My 4-year-old wears between a 4T and 5T in pants, and the XXS size fits him generously, but not too big. The bottom of the legs are reinforced, so the pants don't shred there if they are a bit on the long side and the pants come with the Columbia Outgrown feature, which allows you to add length to the pant legs as kids grow. Unless my little one has a huge growth spurt, I can easily see him wearing these pants again next season. He was rolling around in the snow, making snow angels and sledding, and staying completely dry and warm. The only thing I miss is a velcro tab to get a tighter fit at the ankle but over big snow or ski boots they fit fine." —Christine G.

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99+ (available in toddler's size 2T–4T, kids' sizes XSS–XL, and 17 colors).

    12. A toddlers' and kids' snow pant that's not a hassle to put on, because snow days should be a cause for celebration, not stress.,

    Promising review: "These snow pants were purchased for my grandkids to play outside in a cold, often muddy yard. The pants are so much tougher than I expected, with the ripstop fabric and extra on the knees and bum. Well-made with zippered pockets and Velcro waist resizing. For the price, I am most impressed with the rugged fabric." —taryn y

    Get it from Amazon for $28.20+ (available in toddlers' sizes 2T–4T, kids' sizes XS–XXL, and six designs).

    13. A pair of snow pants for babies when you don't feel like wrestling your wriggly infant into a full snowsuit — just pull these on, and your baby will be all set for their winter waddle.

    Old Navy

    Promising review: "It looks so good and is a perfect fit for my 6-month-old baby. I bought the matching jacket from Old Navy earlier. This is the best thing I bought from Old Navy for him." —anonymous

    Get it from Old Navy for $22.99 (available in sizes 0–24M and three colors).

    14. A child's snow pant they'll love wearing, whether they're shredding the slopes or just need some extra warmth during the winter months.


    Promising review: "Beautiful colour, nice fit. It also has a nice Velcro waistband that can be easily adjusted to fit the waist perfectly. My daughter loves it." —Tohid F.

    Get it from Burton for $109.95 (available in sizes youth sizes XS–XL, approx. ages 6–16, and four colors).

    15. A pair of kids' snow pants with reinforced knees and seat that won't rip or wear out no matter how much your kid plops down onto the snow to "take a break.",

    Promising review: "These are great snow pants. Honestly, I bought these for my son to keep at school because they're 'cheap.' They are definitely NOT cheap in quality or construction. They're very comparable to my son's Patagonia snow pants. The price is awesome. He LOVES the lime green color. I purchased the XS. He is 54 pounds and 6 years old. They're a perfect fit. I will definitely be buying another pair of these pants!" —Hakkattack

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in toddlers' sizes 2T–5T, kids' sizes XS–XL, including slim and plus, and 23 colors).

    16. A pair of puffy snow pants that will make your tot the safest and warmest Lil' Michelin Man out there. These snow pants are ideal for casual warmth on the go; you just pull them on and you're done!,

    Promising review: "Honestly, these are the best snow pants I’ve ever bought for my kids. We live in Idaho where it’s frigid during the winter months. These were warm enough for sledding and light enough for school. Even my daughter’s teacher asked me where we got them because they’re so versatile. Most kids wear the bib ones and they’re more difficult to take off. These were perfect. And they have pockets too! I read reviews saying to get a size bigger but honestly, they were true to size." —Danica

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in kids' sizes 2–10 and three colors).

    17. A pair of kids' loose snow pants you can layer on top of their winter clothes without fear because these babies are completely waterproof. And now, so are your babies!, Amazon

    Promising review: "Perfect in a pinch!! Couldn’t find snow pants anywhere for my kids unless I wanted to spend more than $40 a pair. These worked great! I put some long johns then sweats and then these pants. With over a foot of snow my kids stayed dry for hours!!! The velcro on the bottom works great and sealed over their boots perfectly. They are very large because this was the smallest size (8) I could find, but the waist was tight enough to stay up well. They were outside for over two hours and their legs were dry! Amazing." —Casey

    Get it from Amazon for $24.35+ (available in toddlers' sizes 2T–4T, kids' sizes XXS–XL, and four colors).

    This is how your kid will be frolicking in the snow (except, wearing their new pants):
