What precautions should I take when Transporting my skis on a rack?

Binding Maintenance

Before each season, it is advisable to have your bindings checked and adjusted. The anti-friction device should be kept clean. If it becomes damaged, be sure to replace it.

During the off season, store your skis in a warm place. If you keep your skis on a car rack while traveling, make sure to cover the bindings. This will protect them from road grit. It is very important to have your DIN settings checked as you get older.

As your ski skills improve, you might want to choose a more advanced binding model. Be sure to buy your bindings are from a reputable manufacturer. Look, Marker and Tyrolia are the most popular.
