Taking care if your ski gear is very important and there are many ways to do it and these are ways to.
A very useful piece of information is to make sure you Wax your skiing fear before you put it away till the next season. Once you are done with your last outing, brush your gear, scrape all that needs to be removed and waved them with a thick hot coat.
You can use this for about 3 times until you get the desired effect. It is important to do this because the use of these wax layers is that they help in keeping the base of your outfit from drying out when the summer comes by.
Always make sure to dry the liners of your boots. You do not have to wait till you are putting out your ski wear to be able to dry the liners, but doing it every night is a good approach to take care of your ski wear, prolonging its life and preventing stench. You can invest in a boot dryer if you wish, but if you don't want that and feel it's a waste of money. Before you use them again, ensure they are properly dry.
Also, make shew to buckle your boots to ensure they do not lose their shapes. So before you decide to store your boots, make sure they are properly buckled and kept it a cool, dry place.
When it comes to your beacon, ensure to remove the batteries because if you leave the batteries in, they can ruin your beacon. Besides starting a new season with fresh batteries is the best way to go.
Also, make sure to dry your skins and keep them in a good skin saver. You can dry them out, but don't do that in the sun as they can ruin the glue.
When it comes to taking care of your ski clothing, it is advisable to wash the synthetic base layers with a good base layer wash. However, during a skiing season, you can use soap as this doesn't have a long term effect, but for yourself going to be using it again in no time, then you are free to do so. But once a season is over, then the use of special wash would be recommended to give it a deeper and more thorough clean up, therefore preventing it from the stink it might get from staying in your closet for so long.
You can also wash your shell for at least once in a season, that is if it is unbelievably dirty. A good reason to wash away the dirt is that they tend to interfere with the membrane, therefore, affecting the water repelling ability and also affects the ability to vent moisture. There are soaps which are specifically designed for technical jackets, and after washing these, the use of a water repellency treatment is good as it promotes durability.
Do not throw your synthetic puffy or even you down at the back and dark part of your closet, especially putting it there amidst other clothing. This is because these layers do not like being compressed as they are needed for warmth, and the fibers need to be lofty at all times. So keeping them at the back of your closet where they can be compressed isn't such a good idea.
Ensure to wash your clothing to make sure they are clean before putting them away. Most people do not know how to go about the cleaning process; this is why it is best to give it to a good laundry service as they would do it properly.
If you stay in a place which is hot, then you have nothing to worry about your clothes getting dry or not. However, this isn't the case everywhere, so after your last ski day, make sure to let you ski gear hang dry thoroughly for a long, long time as to ensure every bit of moisture that could cause a stink would be gone. When it's sunny, you can take your gear and hang it on a line. You can also put rice in your gloves to absorb the moisture, but if you opt for this, make sure it is in a place rodents can't get to in order to avoid further complications.
Once all your gear is clean and dry, it is better to store them in a particular place to avoid looking for individual items when the next ski season comes. This way, you would always be ready.
