The Ski Amigo is an excellent idea, if only it were made of something stronger than cheap plastic.The wheels did not turn properly. When I tried to use the feature to buckle/unbuckle the boots, it broke off. I threw it away after the first use.

Rolls well. Stays strapped on. Good Idea for People that can't carry their skis on their shoulders, like my wife. She is a small lady. Could use a better pull string. I'll come up with something.

These are great to slip into with regular snow boots - a minimal investment for a beginner toddler skier. They fell off my daughter a couple times, but the straps are adjustable and can be tightened, both around toes and ankles. We didn't use the poles, so I can't comment on them, but the plastic on the baskets is very flexible, not rigid - just a minor observation. Also, I think it would be tough to use edgy-wedgies with these to keep the tips together because they are so round. Overall, I would say these serve the purpose and are worth the money. We will use them again several times this winter. I would recommend them.
Although you might think that skis are your most important piece of ski equipment, ski boots have more to do with performance than the skis or bindings. Ski boots that aren't right for your feet can prevent the transfer of pressure to the ski and contribute to a lack of control. While your boots will never be as comfortable as sneakers, the correct boot will be a lot more comfortable to wear for a full day on the slopes.
When purchasing ski apparel, it's best to think in terms of layering. Layering helps keep out the cold and wet of the winter environment while keeping perspiration off of your skin, so you stay warm and comfortable. Layering snow apparel also gives you the ability to adjust your warmth to fluctuating environmental conditions while participating in snow sports.
Dressing for a skiing trip can be a bit daunting. You want to look good, but at the same time, it is more important to consider your health and safety while on the slopes. Finding ski clothing that will keep you warm while protecting your hands, feet, eyes and overall body is not an easy task. Double check your bags to ensure you've packed all of the most essential men's ski clothing and women's ski clothing.
Any vacation is difficult to pack for, but a ski vacation is one of the most difficult. You'll need a variety of skiing clothing, equipment, accessories and other items, and it's easy to forget one or two items. Ski resorts are notorious for high prices on nearly everything, so you'll want to be sure to pack every last item that you need for a successful skiing trip. Follow a few simple tips and you'll be on your way.
Your active outdoor lifestyle doesn't have to come to a screeching halt when the snow starts flying. It's time to get geared up in ski accessories and hit the slopes. If you're an avid skier, winter is the best time of year for outdoor action. Besides your skis, you will need a few ski accessories to enjoy your snowy adventures. Whether you're a downhill or cross-country skier, you will need to stock up on ski accessories, such as ski poles, ski boots, bindings, helmets, goggles and ski clothing. This ski accessories buying guide will show you how to buy ski accessories that will offer top performance, durability and value for your money.
Buying proper ski equipment is essential if you want to really enjoy your time skiing. The seemingly endless supply of equipment available today can be confusing, but don't immediately assume that the most expensive is also the best. The best news is that knowing what to look for in ski equipment is fairly basic, and as long as you look for what you need instead of what's trendy, you'll be just fine. As with buying equipment for any snow sport, it's always wise to know what to look for as you shop.
A lot of personal choice comes into play when choosing ski clothing. Ski and snowboard clothing can range from a long-sleeve, one-piece outfit or ski bibs over a shirt, to a two-piece matching outfit consisting of ski pants and a ski jacket. Personal style, however, should not trump comfort. Ensure a fun, comfortable day on the slopes by choosing ski apparel that is easy to move in and keeps you warm and dry when skiing.
A good pair of ski pants can mean the difference between a fun, comfortable day on the mountain or a cold and wet skiing experience. While many snow pants are marketed as waterproof, knowing what to look for when choosing ski pants will help you find quality men's pants and bibs and women's pants and bibs. You'll reap the rewards next time you hit the slopes in your new ski clothing.
Finding a good pair of downhill skis is important to your skiing performance and pleasure on the slopes. While some manufacturers make higher quality skis than others, finding the right type and size of skis is usually more important than the brand. When you're looking for the downhill skis that are right for you, consider your body type, skiing style and the type of snow you most often find yourself in. Keep reading for more tips on buying downhill skis.
A big part of a fun day on the ski slopes is feeling comfortable in your ski jacket. If your ski jacket isn't keeping you dry or warm, you won't have as much fun skiing. When you're shopping for ski and snowboard clothing, pay special attention to the jacket you choose. A good ski jacket should be comfortable, functional and versatile enough so you can adjust to the ever-changing conditions on the mountain.
A good pair of ski goggles will protect your eyes in many ways. Ski goggles block ultraviolet light, which can be stronger at high elevations than at near sea level. Sunlight also tends to be brighter when you're skiing because the light reflects off the snow. Ski and snowboard goggles will also protect your eyes by keeping wind and snow out better than sunglasses, and you won't have to worry about your goggles falling off or breaking as easily as sunglasses. And if you enjoy tree skiing, goggles are going to help protect your face and eyes from small branches.
Just as important as your skis and poles, your ski goggles let you see better and protect your eyes from the sun, snow, wind and branches. You have several different lens options, and each lens is designed for different conditions. Knowing which lens works in what conditions will help you buy the right pair.
Snow skiing is a popular winter sport, and having the proper ski gear can make it even more fun.

The following guidelines can help you understand the differences between downhill ski gear and cross-country ski gear so you can get the most out of your ski trip.
If you look around the slopes, you'll notice that more and more snowboarders are wearing helmets.
