    Stupid Winter!

    My skis are out at my mothers BF's house. I de-winterized them and stored them out there with the covers on.

    Question is-should I put them back in the garage? Its supposd to get to 19 degrees and 3" of snow. I don't know if it will damage them but I figure it cant be good. Will the cold/snow do any harm?

    If you can blow the water out of your intercooler I would think it would be ok. Not sure about the GPR. If there is no water in the skis then freezing shouldnt be a problem. I think the garage thing may be a good idea...

    I havent winterized my ski at all this year and dont plan to.

    I hate winter I have had enough this year..

    Come on Spring!!!

    i'm dying up here man...

    last week we had 2 days in a row 55-60 degrees

    woke up this morning and it was -13 degrees.. yea negative. oh and 30+ mph winds.

    right now it's fluctuating between -1 and +1 degrees here in nyc... the winds are screaming, and i'm not leaving my apartment, the hell with class

    ... do you have a small air compressor? hook the compressor up to the flush port and blow air thru the lines, that will do enough to keep it safe.... really just to protect the intercooler core in case there's alot of water in it

    Shouldnt be any water in it. Flushed it out the other week and then cleared all the water out of it. I think I'll swing by and rev them up a bit to clear it out one final time then just hope for the best.

    I'll be down by Josh and Brian in Maryland on March 16,17,18 is the plan

    if anyone wants to ride that weekend, bring the skis... get some break-in hours on our skis and do some testing since we'll have others around if we run into any problems.
