When winter comes, me & family like to downhill ski about twice a week. There are 3 people, and therefore 3 sets of skis that need to be stored.
We live in an apartment with no garage, and it is sort of a pain to carry the skis up and down stairs every time we ski. I have been dutifully carrying them in and out to prevent rust. I am trying to find a way to avoid all this ski-hauling.
We have an SUV that comfortably holds all of the skis. How can I store them for several days in the SUV without rust? Has anyone found a way to do this?
Here is my idea, which is untested: (1) After skiing, brush most of the snow off the skis (2) Place the skis on a rack inside the back of the SUV before driving (3) During driving, the heat in the car will melt any remaining snow. (4) Leave skis in car for 3 or 4 days until we ski again.
(If it matters at all, I'm in Michigan)
