I'm dealing with some less-than-ideal storage options and I wonder if it would make sense to keep my skis in a ski bag with a couple of large packets of Damp Rid (This stuff, but without the plastic holder, just the packets): http://www.damprid.com/product/easy-fill-system-any-room
I have a basement with a dehumidifier running all the time, but it's still a basement--a bit damp. I thought about oiling the edges and leaving them on their sides on a table, covering the bindings with cotton cloth. (To keep dust, but primarily cat litter, out of the bindings).
The other option is the bag with moisture control. I worry that the material in the Damp Rid packets might damage the skis, though.
I hesitate to keep them upstairs in the house because I'll be gone most of the summer and the a/c won't be on. The temps in the house will be very high.
This is the end of my first year skiing; I got good deals on a couple of pairs of really nice skis, and I want to do my best to care for them and not make any dumb mistakes. I'm a teacher, so on my salary I'm not going to be buying skis with any regularity. Any advice on pampering my new favorite toys would be much appreciated.
Thanks so much!
