Stocking Stuffers for Santa's Littlest Skiers

By Adventure Mom \ December 19 2017

This week we checked in with Santa to learn what his favorite stocking stuffers are for the littlest skiers on the mountain.


Don't Let Jackfrost Nip your Nose

Your little ones might not always be excited about those knitted sweaters from Aunt Julie, but we can guarantee they'll be dying to try on Santa's favorite accessories to stay warm on the mountain. 

Ski Socks: If you are the person on laundry duty in your house, you know this better than anybody: you really can't have enough ski socks. Find a fun print, roll them up with some ribbon, and they make the perfect stocking stuffer.

Beanies from their favorite resort: When your kiddo is back on the school bus after winter break, let them take a memory from their favorite mountain with them. 

Long underwear: Long underwear used to be a boring gift- but have you seen all the fun prints out there this season? Find a fun pair that will keep your little skiers dry and warm on storm days, and that also double as cute loungewear for around the house. These base layers for toddlers have us swooning. 

Buff: With all the prints and designs out there, the buff has gone from a necessity on cold days, to a total fashion statement. Call us biased, but this one is our favorite.

Goggles: Have you checked out the playful goggle designs from Smith Optics this season? Even your most stubborn toddler will be willing to wear these!


Accessories for Reindeer Games


Santa LOVES playing outside in the snow- here are some of his favorite gear picks to keep your kids playing outside for hours.

Snowball Thrower: Just because you've come home from the mountain doesn't mean your crew needs to come back inside. Remember these from your own childhood? Keep the kids playing outside for another hour while you finish dinner!

GoPro Shorty Tripod: If your family was lucky enough to get a GoPro under the Christmas tree this year, the next thing you'll want are some accessories to get the perfect shot. This tiny tripod packs a punch!

Hand warmers: You've heard the whining about cold hands. No explanation needed.


Gift Cards That Give Adventure

Some of Santa's favorite gifts are ones he can redeem and enjoy on the mountain. Whether it's ski lessons for Donner, or apres fun with his elves, here are some of his favorites!

Ski Lessons at Nordic Valley: Help your littlest skiers feel confident on the mountain this year with a ski lesson at Nordic Valley!

Night passes to Brighton: Just because winter break will come to an end doesn't mean that your kids can't go skiing during the week. Passes to Brighton for night skiing will be one of their favorite gift cards to redeem.

Jupiter Bowl: After a long day of skiing at Park City Mountain, your kids will love having their own après party at Jupiter Bowl. Set them up for a game of bowling and some nachos and maybe they'll even let you tag along.


Roasted Chestnuts and Figgy Pudding

It's no secret that skiing builds appetites. Whether he's enjoying hot cocoa and frozen candy bars on the lift, or sitting down for a bowl of hot chili in the lodge, Santa stays fueled during his day on the slopes.

Klean Kanteen: Now that Klean Kanteen makes kid-sized thermoses, it'll be easier to distinguish which thermos has Mom's piping hot coffee, and which one has the perfectly barely warm cocoa for your tots. 

Lift Snacks: It's been proven by scientific research that Snickers bars and Junior Mints are even more delicious when frozen. Your kids can ride with these all day in their pockets, and pull out some perfectly frozen snacks to keep them fueled on the lift. 

Honey Stinger Stroopwafels: Who says granola bars have to be dense and pasty to keep you fueled? Your kids will love munching on these stroopwafels on the mountain. 

Giftcard to Needles Lodge Cafe: Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are great. Most of the time. Give your kids a break from bag lunches once or twice this season by checking out one of our favorite lunch spots in Utah at Snowbasin Resort.
