How to store snowshoe

As the warm weather slowly approaches and the snow quietly melts, it may be time for your snowshoes to be put away and stored safely for summer the summer months.
Here are a few tips on how to store your snowshoes through the summer months to ensure they will be ready to float across the snow next snowfall.

  • Before putting your snowshoes away for the off season, be sure to clean them. Get in between the cracks of the bindings and crampons and use
    cleaning products that won’t hurt the snowshoe or it’s materials.
  • When choosing a place to store your snowshoes, take into consideration high temperatures and avoid places where moisture might be present.
  • Pick an accessible and safe place to store your snowshoe to avoid any accidental run-ins with the metal crampons.
  • And like all things that we store for a longer amount of time, remember where you stored them to avoid the panic
    to finding them when the snow makes its return.
