Ski season is officially here and if you’re planning to hit the slopes you’ll want to stay warm both on and off the mountain. Whether you’re looking for technical, weather-proof, or plush-knit gear, we’ve sorted through the chicest accessories for everyone in your brood to buy this season.
Likely one of the most overlooked accessories, goggles not only prevent glare, but they protect your eyes and the delicate skin around them from the elements and sunburn—a very real thing because UV exposure increases at higher altitudes. Goggles also won’t fall off your face the way sunglasses can if you fall or allow snow or rain to blind your vision if the weather suddenly turns.

Plus, there’s the added bonus of keeping warm as most winter sport helmets are softly padded. Whether you’re a ski or snowboard novice, or a well-seasoned shredder, these helmets will keep you safe and looking good.
