Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I thought it better here.

Before you put your boots away for the summer, pull out the liners and footbeds and leave them somewhere airy and dry to make sure they are not damp. After a couple of days put the footbeds and the liners back in the boots, do the clips up but not too tight and put them somewhere dry and dark until you need them again.

While I’m at it take the batteries out of your transceivers.

And take the batteries out of your Resqski's.

And the din settings on your bindings do NOT need slackening off.

The toes on tech/pin bindings should be stored closed (ie as though there was a boot in them).

Dirty socks would-be fine, I discovered an orange left in a while back.

I once found an orange in the pocket of an old down jacket that I hadn’t worn for around 15 years. It had virtually fossilised.
Anyway the other thread is the gag thread, behave.

I was thinking of building a rack for storing my collection of skis, but what’s best vertical on their tails, or horizontal on their bases?

Good call on the dynafits Jon.

If you get an 'ottoman' style bed (IE metal frame that pops up the mattress to reveal storage underneath) you get a ski locker big enough for really quite a lot of skis on their bases.

That's what I use anyway, so bases is it.

Personally, my top tip for summer storage (knowing myself too well) is to pack bags as closely as possible to how they'll go out on the first trip. That way, when I leave it too late to pack the following season there's only a minimal amount to do...

@dp, Mrs jbob pops most of the soft Ski stuff into vacuum bags and squashes them flat. We will also use the same thing packing the car for the season, keeps things dry and as small as possible if not a little creased! I’m always a little worried when I can’t see may stuff and think it’s missing.
