Storing your skis, boots and outerwear properly over the summer means it’ll perform better and last longer, plus it’ll look and feel good as new when you break it out for next winter. A much better alternative to taking a slightly rusty pair of cobweb-covered, unwaxed skis out of the corner of the garage in November!

The best time to get it sorted is right now, and here’s our quick and easy guide.
