Here is me snowshoeing last year with my 8 mo old:
He loves being outside and we love it as well. He has on a super warm Patagonia bodysuit with built-in mittens. He is wearing a hat that covers his ears well. One thing I don't do is take him if there is a very stiff wind. I do worry a bit about frostbite on his cheeks.
Other then that we go-being outdoors in the wintertime is good for us all and we spend a lot of time outdoors.
I know that ski resorts want kids to be at least 3 to start them with lessons, and they frown on starting them snowboarding, I'm not sure why----they want to start them on skis. And, when they teach them at that age, it is more about getting used to the boots and skis, and they kind of "walk" around on flats, *maybe* get them to go down a bunny hill later on in the week.
I'd be VERY careful skiing with a 10 month old----although I admire your desire to get out and get active and enjoy the outdoors, you wouldn't want to fall down on top of a 10 month old. Even excellent skiers can fall, and do fall.
