Since we are into the ski year I'm trying to minimize the frustrations of my family on the ski slopes I'm looking for a pass holder for kids. My kids are constantly breaking their pass holders or can't get them out of their coats.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Thanks for your help.

go with seasonal rentals, less upfront $$ until you decide if the sport is for you. also, get a helmet for the kids.

Sorry if you think it's spam, I was just trying to get other peoples constructive opinions. I'm a parent with children and I was hoping to connect with other parents as well. It looks like I'm just dealing with children on this forum with responses like that.

Do you really think they have seasonal rentals for the thing he posted a link for to hold a seasons pass? It's only $7.99 to buy it outright.

at least try to find a demo day to test it out before you buy

To be fair we get a lot of this on the site. People pop in and post a link to a product they create or are marketing under the guise of their target market. I'm still not sold on the fact that you aren't in fact the owner or an employee or a contractor of "Goggle Pocket". Only continued posting on your part would convince me otherwise.

But, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt for now.

My .02. I bought a nice retractable pass holder for myself. The lanyard that they default give you at Wachusett blows behind my back and whips me in the face. I do get nervous on the lanyard as I have had them before (for a work ID) and I have lost those ID's before because of clasps failing.

I had an arm band last year; but that kept creeping down my arm and I had to continually adjust it.

I personally think they look ridiculous on goggles. I'd prefer to just have a clear sleeve that hung on a zipper or pull, but it seems difficult to find those (not that I have been looking that aggressively.

Nick,

Sorry, I was not trying to advertise anything on this forum, I shouldn't have put a link in my message. You are correct that I was on the Epic ski forum talking about the same thing but I didn't post a link on that site, someone else did. This has been a frustrating topic for me and I was just looking for more options. I know this isn't what people want to talk about so I'm going to drop it and move on, I don't want people to think I'm a spammer.

sometimes people just get off on the wrong foot and get labeled spammer when all they really are is passionate about a certain topic.

I order the Goggle Pocket item last week for my children and received them by the weekend. Since Colorado got some snow this weekend we went skiing on Sunday. The ski pass holder worked great and we didn't have any frustrated parents or children. Some of the lift operators thought it was the best way of displaying a pass they had seen for kids.

Thanks for everyone's help.

Ha. SkiNorgy, can you admit it now? I mean you are asking if the goggle pocket is any good, but yet ... you already own one. Hmmmm .... :)
