Need Help With Storing Big Ski Quiver

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Does anybody have any ideas for a good ski storage system for organizing and storing the family's ski quiver?  At last count we were up  to 18 pairs of skis?  In the past, I'd put the skis in ski bags and store them in one of the bedrooms, but the collection has simply grown to big.  

 

Thanks.

I'm in the same boat, with at least 18 pairs in current rotation.  What I did was get a piece of 2x6, drilled holes in the board for 18"x1" dowels (maybe 3" apart?), spacing the dowel pairs far enough apart for binding clearance, and glued the dowels in.  Then we got some plastic/rubber trays, padded them with tool box drawer pad for the skis to set on, and put 3-4 pairs in each set of dowels.  I screwed the rack into the wall in the tuning room.  I organize them by skier - one (or two :-) )rack for mine, one for my wife, one for each kid, etc.  Keeps things pretty organized, and the price was right.  I'll try to attach a pic - it was from mid-season so most of the skis were in the mountains, but hopefully it will give you an idea.  Sorry about the mess - it was a little hectic.

I have a rack similiar to coloskier along one wall in the bedroom. I like my skis out where I can see them.

Storing skis in bags or cases can sometimes invite rust.

Plus 1 for the dowel approach. From this thread:

 

 

 

 

With more height, you can keep the floor space below for additional storage.

I store mine by hanging them from the floor joists in my crawl space.  My crawl space stays cool and relatively dust-free all summer.  I cut 20" lengths of cord then staple them to the joists in loops.

There's always the pre-built 'ski bin' approach:

Can get beastly with wide tails, twintips or low ceilings.

For true beastliness :

 

 

 

The EX20 rack holds 20 pairs of wide Skis vertically, up to 101 mm wide. This rack is a freestanding, X-shaped design, made of black polycarbonate. Made in the USA.

$2.00 garden tool hooks with a little plastic tubing over then are good for holding two pairs of skis (or guitars).

 

 

 

10 of these would do the job, but dowels look prettier if you're up for the project

With all the brick shops closing down, gridwall is pretty durn available.     You can duplicate the above with gridwall hooks, even off set for binding clearance.

Invite me over. I'll store the cherry-picked sticks.
