Tips to start winterizing your trampoline

Not everyone gets to live in a warm climate year-round and depending on how cold, windy, and snowy, your area can get you might consider dismantling your trampoline and packing it up and away for the season. But wait- most trampolines are made to be quite hardy and durable so with just a couple steps you can keep it clear of snow and ice and stop it from blowing over or running away from you. 

First, remove the frame mats and store them inside in a cry and clean space when the trampoline is not in use. This will stop any damage from snow plus it gives you the chance to clean them off of any residue from summer and fall. 

If your area is prone to snow its best to stay on top of it, removing it before it piles up and weighs down, thus wearing down, your trampoline. A broom is best for this.  Weather covers are a great idea when the trampoline is not in use, but careful; if the cover is loose it can trap in moisture and hurt the trampoline. If you use a cover, and not just for during winter, make sure to take it off periodically and let your trampoline breathe a bit. 

Trampoline wind worries?

Wind can seriously pick up and you don’t want your trampoline picked up with it too. Luckily trampoline anchors are readily available. These are a great investment all year long if you live in an area with severe winds.

By getting anchor kits you can keep your trampoline safe but also your home and neighbours, it’s not unheard of that when a trampoline gets caught up in wind it winds up hitting against your house, garage, or worse; hitting someone.

Tips for safe jumping during winter

Now that your trampoline is ready you need to make sure you are ready too. It’s recommended to avoid jumping when the weather gest rough with high winds or snowfall that can make the surface slippery. Additionally, you should pay attention to the clothes you wear while jumping. Bundling up to go outside and to jump can be a bit different.

Make sure all jackets and zippers are done up and avoid loose clothing like scarfs that can easily come free and cause an accident. Boots made for walking on ice can be really harsh on the surface of the trampoline too, the rough soles will damage the trampoline quickly.
