Do you store your skis in the attic?

I recently had the need to get something from my attic.

OMG!! Toofy Grin Toofy Grin Toofy Grin

It was so SO INCREDIBLY HOT.

If you kept skis up there it surely would do them no good at all.

We keep ours in a nice cool (and bone dry) ski room....lucky for me, but with storage space a premium for many I bet there are some in the attics.

Dry them off in the house then out to the garage with oil on the edges & covered with open bag.

cleaned, dried, wax on the edges (trying to avoid any rust and unnecessary edge sharpening), stored in the spare room.
I use the spare room because the temprature is fairly modest during the summer. And the moisture level is not too high.
Attics are 'Scorchio'

My store room is about the coolest room in the building.
The skis are of course still in the dining room, where I left them after BB.

I donít really think temps you could tolerate would damage skis at all.

So donít store them beside your unshielded thermonuclear pile.

I would put them in the Keller, but itís full of boxes, tools and other unnecessary shite. And the winter tyres and my bike. And most of the booze. So the skis live in the spare room with the stinky climbing things. Iíd probably move them if someone was staying in there. Maybe.

@musher, a very good point. Also, theyíd inevitably knock them over in the night, creating a huge racket and waking me up.

This thread has me thinking maybe I should slap some wax on them and pop them in the loft to 'hotbox' for a day or two Wink

One pair next to the door cos I just came back from skiing in Castleford fridge other pair still in ski bag in bedroom since EoSB Embarassed but going to Cervinia in 3 weeks so not worth storing them at this point Very Happy

Mine/ours are in the attic. They do have storage wax on, though. Hopefully, it will be nicely soaked in, otherwise it will be in a gloopy puddle somewhere. (I don't know. I've never been in the attic. We don't have a proper ladder so it's a step ladder to start with then hoist yourself through the hatch with your own arm-muscle power. Which I don't have Embarassed * . Anyway, that's what husbands and sons are for ... Little Angel .)

*Muscles, not arms. I have arms.

The temperature that skis reach while propped in the sun against the bar wall on the eosb will be far higher than the loft.
Anywhere dry & out of the sun is ok for storage.

@tangowaggon, I dunno - we pulled out loft ladder down last week and MrHL almost burned his hand!

@maggi, Laughing We used to have the same situation with regard to accessing our loft and, being vertically challenged, it would have presented even more of a problem for me. Therefore, a few years ago I insisted on having a concertina ladder installed. I can now access the loft at will and keep all my ski gear up there. I still have to use a stepladder to be able to compress the base rail of the concertina ladder onto its retaining hooks though! Toofy Grin

You need to watch this to understand the complexity of the male/female relationship revealed in that statement:

Skis in the living room, the hall, and both bedrooms... of course rolling eyes
I think the van is clear of skis now but at this time last year there were still 30 pairs of Whitedots living in there Confused

Ah, a loft: a loft would be... well, probably full of skis by now snowHead

@admin, yep us too ... bedroom cupboards, under most of the beds, in the garage and boiler room, and in the two attics - which do get very hot since itís the Valais (40deg c) and it seems to have no impact on the skis whatsoever.

I decided to go against the grain and store the skis in my Austrian cellar instead of the kids.
