1. Stone grind and tune skis near or at the end of the season.
2. Before putting skis away for the season clean the bases with a warm wax CH8 or CH10 or special cleaner wax that Swix makes or other wax maker's equivalent. Avoid cleaners unless your bases are really grungy. Even citrus-based cleaners usually have petroleum distillates.
3. Apply heavy coat of warm wax.
4. Store skis at room temperature where you can SEE them and think of the season ahead. [img]smile.gif[/img]
1.Remove liners and let them thoroughly dry out (spraying anti-bacterial foot powder optional depending on your circumstances
). If your boots are dirty, wash with mild soap and warm water.
2.Replace liners and buckle boots loosely.
3.Store at room temperature.
I don't back them off. However, if it may not help, it can't hurt as long as you remember to have them reset at the proper DIN setting before you use them next.
1.Let dry thoroughly away from high heat. Inserting a paper towel tube into the gloves will speed the drying process.
2.If leather, treat with recommended conditioner. Store in cool dry place.
Wash jacket and pants with NIC WAX or equivalent and use NIK WAX waterproofing or equivalent, if neccesary. Regular laundry detergent does bad things to gore-tex.
During the interim between next season when you have nothing better to do you can periodically wax, brush and omni prep your skis to make those recently stone ground skis run faster when the season begins. Do this while watching ski videos. [img]smile.gif[/img]
However, why are we talking about this subject? It's only March.
