Maintenance and storage of ski boots
The ski season ends, it's time to put away your ski equipment. But in order to get the same pleasure every year, you have to take care of your ski equipment, especially shoes.
Follow the advice of Precision Ski to enjoy your ski boots longer.
The good maintenance for your ski boots
With a good maintenance, you can extend the lifespan of your ski boots. Otherwise, the outer layer of your boots will begin to crack and break due to wear.
It is therefore important to pay attention to this if you don’t want this to happen in the middle of a descent.
Maintenance isn’t only done at the end of the winter but throughout all the season. Some small habits are good to take if you wish to keep your material longer.
First, at the end of each day of skiing, remove the snow that is on your shoes, avoiding bumping them against each other.
Once at home, you can remove the sock from the hull so that it dries perfectly.
It is also important to close the buckles (without tightening them), so that the plastic doesn’t deform.
How to put your ski boots away?
When the winter season is over, you can clean the inside and the outside of the ski boot with hot water and a mild detergent (be careful to take a soft product that will not damage the plastic of your ski boot).
With a damp cloth, wipe the outside of each socks and the surface of the soles. Allow to dry thoroughly before replacing.
Make sure all components of the ski boot are in good condition. Hulls, socks, soles and buckles shall not show signs of wear.
Once the boot is back in the hull, remember to close your boots so that they do not take "bad folds".
Finally, put your ski boots away in a safe and dry place. If possible, place them in a dustproof cover, away from mice!
With these tips, you should keep your ski boots for longer!
