HOW TO PREPARE YOUR SKIS, BINDINGS, SKI BOOTS AND CLOTHING FOR SUMMER

Spring is here, like it or not and that means for most of us its time to hang up our boots and give our skis a rest until next winter. But before you put your ski gear away for summer and wheel out that bike, there are a few things you can do to ensure that your gear is prepped and ready to go for next winter. Then when that first snowfall settles you can be one of the first to be out in line for a chair. Not only that but these steps will ensure that your gear remains in the best condition and doesn’t deteriorate, or succumb to rust over the summer.
