A few things on how to store your climbing skins for summer

Storing climbing skins properly during the summer months can help prolong their lifespan and ensure that they remain in good condition for the next winter season. Here are some steps to follow:

  1. Clean the skins: Before storing the skins, it is important to clean them thoroughly. Use a skin cleaner or a mild detergent and warm water to remove any dirt, grime, or debris. Make sure to rinse the skins well and let them air dry completely.

  2. Trim the skins: If necessary, trim any excess material from the skins to ensure a proper fit on your skis.

  3. Apply skin savers: Skin savers are protective sheets that go between the glue side of the skins to prevent them from sticking together or picking up debris. Apply skin savers to both sides of the skins before storing.

  4. Store in a cool, dry place: Store the skins in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight, heat, and moisture. A closet or gear room is a good option. Avoid storing them in an attic, basement, or garage where temperatures can fluctuate and humidity can be high.

  5. Avoid folding: To prevent creases and damage to the glue, avoid folding the skins. Instead, roll them up with the plush side facing out.

  6. Check on them periodically: Check on the skins periodically during the summer to ensure that they remain in good condition. If you notice any damage or deterioration, address it promptly to avoid further damage.

By following these steps, you can ensure that your climbing skins are stored properly during the summer months and ready for use when winter arrives.
