Ski Equipment Storage and Maintenance
Wipe your skis down after skiing. The edges will rust if you do not because
they are made of high carbon steel.
Store your skis in a dry area. Do not lean them against hot pipes or on
For summer storage, it is best to use a light coating of oil on the edges
of skis to prevent rust.
Keep them clean at all times because road salt and dirt will corrode your
bindings and may cause them to malfunction.
Have your bindings checked by your local ski shop at least once a year
(more often if you ski a lot) to make sure that they are functioning properly.
When storing your equipment for the summer, turn down your release settings.
This will keep your release settings consistent for a longer period of
Make sure your boots are buckled up after use.
Make sure the various layers are folded over each other correctly. This
will help them keep their shape and remain comfortable
Make sure your boots are dried out after using them. They will be warmer
on your feet the next day.
Keep your boot soles clean and free of dirt. Try not wear down the heels
and toes of your boots. A clean unworn boot will release more consistently
from your bindings.
Use a ski bag or binding cover when transporting your skis on top of your
car. This will help to protect them from road salt and grime.
When traveling by plane, bus or train protect your skis with a ski bag.
This also makes them easier to carry.
