Our kids are teenagers now, so we expect them to tote their gear from the car to the slopes. In fact, now that we’re older and they’re young and spry, we’ll load them down with some of our stuff for good measure (please don’t forward post this to Social Services).
However, years ago, a new product from Kinderlift of Colorado would have made things a lot easier. Back in the day, we had to make the Bataan Death March from the parking lot to the lifts hauling our gear, plus at least one of our kid’s gear. Painful, but not so much with KinderKarry.
“We came up with the idea while skiing Beaver Creek Resort,” says Randy Burklund of Kinderlift Colorado. “At the beginning and end of the day families were walking by and dad was carrying his own skis and a couple of short skis and maybe poles for his young kids, who were following behind, dropping gloves and stocking caps every so often. Mom was following up, carrying her own ski equipment while picking up the items the kids dropped. Not a good way to start the day.”
KinderKarry is the result, and it’s designed to hold everything, including skis or a snowboard with a strap system on the outside of the bag.
KinderKarry is $49.95, is made of nylon and polyester, is machine washable and lightweight. The 15” (l) x 13” (h) x 8” (w) bag also has a removable plastic bottom insert and inside pocked for documents, cell phones, wallets and so forth.
