How do you store your skis for the summer?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just bought some new boards and was wondering what everyone does to store their skis for the summer. I have a coat of wax on the bases, but what do you guys do if anything with the bindings?

I tell them in a calm and reassuring tone that if they are patient, winter will return and everything will be OK.

I think there are more threads about how to store skis than how to ski on them...

Mine sit in my bedroom, and get stared at for endless amounts of hours, thinking about the previous season or the one to come. They get stored vertically with the ends resting on a spare pillow (flats w/o removable), or they get laid down on a padded area (bindings mounted). No joke .

Well, I put about 20 pair in my storage locker and keep the rest handy so I can ski on them as needed.

They all stay waxed and ready just in case I need something from the bull pen.

I put a paste wax on the edges so the moisture doesn't get to them, then I take them out of storage when I find out that there's still snow somewhere, and find a good price on air fare to that snowy somewhere.

I feel it's best to apply spf 14 sun lotion liberally and get them some good shades. Then put them in a lounge by the pool so that they can enjoy the warm weather and take a dip if it gets too hot.:

Don't store them. Ski them.

I've been told by a reputable local shop to lock the heel in the down position to release the spring tension for storage. Some also say to back off the din setting as well.

What is "din setting", and would you have them standing up the wall or laying down on the floor?

The archives here are full of info - a little searching generally is very productive. Some of the "older" Bears probably get tired of responding to some of these popular topics. Here are a few past threads I have dug up from my favorites list. There are no doubt more but probably somewhat repetitve.
