For parents who love outdoor winter activities, including children in the fun at early ages will maximize family safety and enjoyment. However, it’s a truism that children outgrow clothing rapidly. How does a parent manage to keep their daughter warm, visible, and focused on the slopes without breaking the bank? The good news is that high-quality gear is available without the eye-hurting price tag. This includes the essential warm jackets that won’t inhibit motion or blend into the monochrome background of a snowy landscape. In order to assist in the search for affordable girls’ snowboarding and winter weather gear, we’ve compiled a list of ten of our favorite items.
1. In the Pink with Wantdo
This fun and vivaciously patterned pink snow coat pairs a snuggly interior layer with a water-resistant outer shell. That means your girls can spend hours learning the ways of snowboarding without the discomfort of cold, wet skin. A fur hood fringe helps to combat chilly breezes. The powder skirt and adjustable cuffs with interior elastic bands will keep the snow outside where it belongs. This jacket is ideal for both special excursions and everyday weather protection.
2. Hooded Fleece Snow Jacket by Wantdo
The tough fabric of the water repellent exterior shell will stand up to wear and tear while maintaining its vivid presence in the snowy landscape. Meanwhile, the fleece inner lining conserves body heat necessary for long hours on the slopes. Elastic cuffs and stretchy gloves with a pre-cut thumb hole will help to seal out snow while preserving the range of motion essential to snowboarding, skiing, and other winter outdoor activities. Two zippered hand pockets and a chest pocket are ideal for keeping hands warm and small items secure.
3. Aubrey Parka by Burton
Crafted from 100 percent artificial fibers, this parka style coat is printed with vibrantly colored, stylish print that keeps the wearer visible even in lower light conditions. The hood is helmet friendly and comes with a removable faux fur fringe that helps block even the most persistent breeze while out on the snowfields. It’s also an adjustable hood that will grow with the girl. Simply adjust the hood gaiter system. Critically taped seams seal in heat and block moisture intrusion into the dual-layered body of the water-resistant, insulated coat.
4. Gerry 3-in-1 System
With a fully fixed hood, the 100 percent polyester outer shell helps to block every stray breeze while keeping moisture and cold away from the skin. Tailored to fit perfectly beneath this layer is a cozy coat that is also 100 percent polyester, puffed to maximize insulation. Finish the ensemble with a matching knit cap in periwinkle and white stripes. The maximum length should rest comfortably at the hip, rendering motion easy while keeping body heat close to the torso.
5. Helly Hansen’s Junior Louis Jacket
Available in two stylish color combinations, this jacket has all the bells and whistles. Crafted from 100 percent polyester, the seams are completely sealed, and the outer coating prevents moisture intrusion. PrimaLoft Black Eco insulation helps to retain body heat while allowing excess humidity to escape, which will keep the wearer cozy for hours. A chin guard and a soft, tricot-lined collar help to keep exposed skin warm.
6. The Elodie Snowboard Jacket by Burton
Ideal for layering or wearing solo on the slopes, this rich blue jacket is crafted from durable 2-layer polyester with an interior lining. As a standalone, the waterproof jacket provides medium warmth and is tailored to be worn over other gear, such as sweaters, anoraks, and other jackets. A slightly flared body line allows a full range of motion and long cuffs help to seal out moisture and snow.
7. Burton Girls’ Hart Jacket
Choose from three distinct patters—Athens Block, Spellbound Block, or Everglades Block. Each jacket comes well insulated with 100 grams of Thermacore insulation in the body and 80 grams in each sleeve, the hood, and the collar respectively. The seams are critically taped to prevent heat loss, and the water-resistant outer layer is crafted tough to withstand the wear and tear of time on the slopes. The drop-down full-time hood grows with the wearer, with an expandable gaiter system that is also helmet friendly.
8. Burton Elodie Girls’ Snowboard Jacket
For the little girls hitting the slopes this season, Burton offers a brightly patterned parka-style snowboard jacket. Crafted from durable polyester, the insulated jacket provides both warmth and water resistance to the wearer. Keep the cold and wet out while they learn to stand, ride, and ski in the winter wonderland. A full-time hood and chin guard will ensure Jack Frost doesn’t nip too hard.
9. Girls’ Scarlet Insulated Jacket by 686
For the aspiring professional snowboarder, this jacket provides an adjustable sizing system that will grow as they do. The 100 percent polyester manufacture makes the outer shell completely water resistant and will help the insulated inner material retain heat while it wicks away humidity. The hood is helmet friendly, and the powder skirt is detachable for ease of use. Two button flap hand pockets help keep fingers warm during inactive moments, and a full-closure sleeve pocket provides safe storage for lift passes, keys, and other items.

10. Burton Maddie Jacket
With a patented Room to Grow system, this snowboard jacket will keep girls warm on the slopes for several seasons.

Beneath the shell is a 100 percent polyester taffeta layer for added insulation, and the inner layer is a soft, brushed tricot crafted from 100 percent polyester. The body is packed with 100 grams of Thermal Insulation and the sleeves, hood, and collar each have 80 grams, respectively.
