Gear for Snow Day! More specific gear becomes a necessity - a dry, warm kids is a happy kid!
Socks: Wool or even better, Smart Wool. Keeps feet warm and wicks away moisture. While you're at it, pick up some small, waterproof ankle gaiters - it keeps the snow from getting into shoes.
Shoes: What we suggest for Spring and Fall works just as well for winter. You can get shoes that incorporate Gore-Tex to keep all the snow out, but they can be pricey.
Layers: A good base layer (top and bottom) and a synthetic, moisture resistant outer shell.
It goes without saying, but also remember gloves and toque.
