Whether it’s camping, biking, kayaking or skiing, there’s nothing quite like spending time outdoors. Getting outside can be a great way to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life, allowing you to clear your head while enjoying the added benefits of sunshine, fresh air and exercise.  But as the seasons begin to change, so do the outdoor recreation activities you’re able to enjoy. And this fact inevitably leads us to the hassle of storing all that gear for the offseason. After all, you won’t need to keep your sleds, snowshoes or snowboard on hand once April and May arrive. And you probably won’t be needing your tent, fishing gear, golf clubs or lawn games when the snow starts to fall. Initially, the thought of packing away all your outdoor equipment may raise more questions than answers. Like, “How did I accumulate so much stuff?” and “Where am I going to store this?” But don’t let yourself get overwhelmed. Instead, follow these tips on how to safely organize and store your gear so it’s ready when you need it:   HOW TO STORE WINTER GEAR. Clean: Before packing your gear away for the summer, wash off any dirt, salt or grime with warm water. If you’re having trouble cleaning things up, try using a mild soap or base cleaner for skis and snowboards.
