Youngstar ski touring boots

The Youngstar Boot is the first fully featured ski touring boot on the market for kids and youth. It features an impressively low weight and intuitive handling. It is specially designed for the anatomy of young ski tourers and is available as small as size 21.5.

Youngstar ski set

With the Youngstar ski touring set, DYNAFIT is delivering a ideally coordinated and pre-mounted system including skis, bindings and skins. It is available as small as size 120 cm. The ski is forgiving and easy to handle so kids can do well on the slopes and in the backcountry. 

Youngstar ski pole

Youngstar ski poles are made of a light, yet durable aluminum. They can be quickly and easily adjusted in length from 85 to 115 cm. Meaning they can grow with kids over a longer period.

Youngstar INFINIUM™ Insulation Jacket

The new Youngstar INFINIUM™ Insulated Jacket offers 2-in-1 for ambitious kids: With the use of GORE-TEX INFINIUM™ fabrics with Windstopper Technology, the jacket is weather resistant and reliably protects youngsters from wind and snow.

Youngstar 3-layer pants

The new Youngstar 3-Layer Pants are waterproof and wind-resistant. They keep even the smallest ski mountaineers reliably dry even in heavy snowfall or during a romp in the winter. With its great breathability, the fabric ensures kids don’t overheat on the climb.

1/ Don’t take on too much    

Challenging, ok, overextending, no. For the start, 400-500 meters of vert are totally sufficient and of course the terrain should also not be too steep or demanding so kids can first master the technique.  

2/ Beautiful weather + powder = good moods 

Beautiful weather and fresh powder make for a good mood and also keep downhills much more relaxed. My tip: Be flexible in planning. If you have any doubts better to wait for a nicer winter day. First impressions can make it or break it! 

3/ Safe skiing is mandatory! 

Safe skiing is a must before kids can head out on a ski tour. Otherwise, problems could quickly develop in the backcountry. In the beginning, I would nevertheless recommend taking on the first tour close to a groomed slope or in a ski resort.

4/ Variety is king  

Children want to discover the world and follow their playful instincts. Adults should take that into considering when ski touring. Short detours to a great viewpoint, a detour through the woods, or short technique exercises make for good variety.  

5/ Yummy goodies will always motivate  

Motivation is the be-all-end-all when you are out with kids in the mountains – whether on a ski tour or on foot. Looking forward to a yummy goodie or a snack can pep them up quickly. When the first ski tour can be combined with a stop at a hut, all the better.

6/ Teach avalanche awareness playfully    

In general: Only go out on tours when the avalanche risk is low. Little ones should also be equipped with an avalanche transceiver. Looking for somebody buried can be practiced playfully: From experience, kids will have fun looking for a buried backpack filled with treats. 

7/ The more, the better! 

My basic rule for every mountain outing with children is: The more, the better! Kids can also keep themselves busy with each other. The older ones take responsibility for the younger ones and in the end everybody has much more fun.  

8/ Child-appropriate equipment  

When acquiring gear, one should look for high quality and long-lasting durability. The younger siblings will also find pleasure in the jackets, skis and boots, or you will be able to re-sell them well. 

Aside from the right gear, several other factors are also critical to be sure ski touring becomes a free time adventure for the whole family. DYNAFIT managing director Benedikt “Beni” Böhm is the father of three and a passionate ski mountaineer. He reveals his top eight tips and tricks for kids to discover for themselves the joy and ease of ski touring. Scroll through his personal recommendations and get inspired for your first family ski tour.
