When you're staying at any of Timbers' Colorado luxury resorts or private residence clubs, the right hat is absolutely essential. Every member of the family needs the perfect hat to stay warm on the slopes and then stylish while strolling the streets of Vail, Steamboat or Aspen. We've got some great suggestions to get you started.
Get Slouchy: A beanie immediately goes from sporty to stylish when it can either be pulled down the slopes or pushed back on the head as a "slouchie." We love The Zot from Pistil, hand-knit in shimmery acrylic yarn with wide set ribbing. If you want a performance fabric, REI's "SmartWool Slouch Beanie" can't be beat though.
Go Graphic: Guys can stand out from the crowd by picking a hat with a graphic design. Spyder always has a range of options with their signature spider like The Collegiate or for something less ominous try L.L. Bean's "Classic Wool Ski Hat" featuring a telemarking skier.
Shine Bright: Girls just wanna have fun and there's nothing more fun than bright colors and an oversized pom-pom. The Obermeyer "Ski School Knit Hat" in girl purple or pink is a surefire winner. If one pom-pom isn't enough then try the Turtle Fur "Kids Flutter" featuring butterflies and pom-pom caterpillars.
Get Crazy: Boys will love embracing their inner wild thing with outrageous hats from Mental with outrageous designs like rainbow dreadlocks and shark fins. Out of all the comfy fleece hats, the "Snow Monster" is a Timbers favorite but any of these funky hats will keep the little guys warm when flying down the slopes. Bonus: Mental also makes hemet covers for little daredevils.
