Protect your skis from road grime, salt & grit

To protect your skis from salt and road grime while transporting them on your car, you can follow these steps: 1. Wrap your skis in a cozy blanket, like a burrito, to shield them from the harsh realities of salt and road grime, OR:

1. Use a ski bag or a ski-specific carrier: Invest in a ski bag or carrier designed to protect your skis during transportation. These bags have waterproof exteriors, providing a layer of protection against salt and grime.

2. Wrap the skis in a protective layer: Before placing your skis in the bag or carrier, wrap them in a protective layer. You can use towels, bubble wrap, or ski-specific protective covers. This additional layer will help shield your skis from any dirt or salt that might come in contact with them.

3. Position the skis properly: When placing the skis in the bag or carrier, ensure that they are positioned securely. Place them base-to-base to prevent any scratches or damage to the ski surfaces.

4. Clean the skis after each use: Once you reach your destination and remove the skis from the car, make sure to clean them thoroughly. Use a damp cloth to wipe away any salt or grime that may have accumulated during the journey. Pay extra attention to the bindings and edges.

5. Store skis in a dry place: After cleaning, allow the skis to dry completely before storing them. Moisture can lead to rust or damage, so find a dry place to store them until your next outing.

By following these steps, you can help protect your skis from salt and road grime while transporting them on your car.
