The ski gear, ice skates, ice hockey tools, sleds, and snowboards will all be out this holiday season, especially if you live somewhere really cold where snow is starting to build up outside. And your excitement to finally do all the sports you love is growing inside of you. You can’t wait to take them out for a spin again! (And probably why people love winter sports so much is because most don’t get to do it so often that when they finally get to do it again, it feels just like the first time). The excitement never fades and it just always builds up to the moment that there is already snow outside and you can play once more.
All of these have most likely been stored away in the garage during all the months that they weren’t in use. If you. Have had smart storage solutions in place, it must have been easier for you to take your winter toys out. Everything is organized in the garage and you know exactly where things are. Plus, you don’t worry that when you open the bag or container, that you’ll find it broken or damaged because of storage. You did your duty to store it well so that you can use it for more, more years to come.
But the opposite is true if you just kept it in a haphazard way. Who knows what items were placed on top of your gear because there is a buildup of mess in your garage? Maybe you’re scared that some pests entered the bag and caused damage to your expensive gear. Maybe water seeped through it in some way because they weren’t kept in a waterproof type of storage. There are many unfortunate things that can happen to your gear when you do not keep or store them properly during their months of inaction. You’ll definitely regret it at the end of the day. It might take some upfront investment, time, and effort to put up storage solutions but in the end, it’s all worth it and much more affordable than having to buy new equipment just because of irresponsible storage.
Anyway, now that it’s slowly easing into the winter season, you would most likely be using your gear every now and then. It’s time to take them out of ceiling-mounted storage units because those are hard to reach and oftentimes, inaccessible, without a ladder or something elevated for you to step on and reach the item. You would want wall-mounted shelves to be ready to accommodate them or hooks to be able to hang them. So come ski day or snowboarding time, you will just easily pick it up from a wall shelf or a hook secured into the wall.
