By Portland Metro Live

Portland SkingPORTLAND – There’s no denying that Portland Oregon Skiing is coming because the weather is changing and winter is right around the corner but the good news is that with colder weather also comes SNOW and this of course also means that we skiers and snowboarders will be able to hit Mt. Hood soon.

If you’ve been dreaming about hitting the slopes and are looking forward to snow this article will offer you simple tips that you can use to get your skis ready for the winter.

Check Your Head Gear Before Portland Oregon Skiing 

When was the last time you bought a new helmet? If your helmet or goggles ae showing obvious signs of wear and tear then it’s time to replace them immediately because any ski gear can easily wear down especially if you’ve been using them every season for the last five years and to insure that you’re protected on the slopes of Mt. Hood you should replace your head gear before the start of the 2016 ski season.

Show Some Love to Your Ski’s And Bindings

Take your skis and bindings in soon to get them waxed because if you haven’t taken the time to wax them since last season they are going to be needing some attention especially after they’ve spent the hot summer months in storage.

What’s Up with Your Boots?

Last of all, but most important, if you’ve used your ski boots for 50 to 60 days then it’s time to consider getting new ski boots because they start packing out as they wear down with age plus they can get really stinky.

The good news is that ski boots are not expensive and there’s plenty of great deals on ski boots around town and online that you can get just in time for the 2015-2016 Portland Oregon skiing season but remember to use a boot dryer after the end of a long day skiing just so you can save your ski boots and make them last longer.
