You Can Jump on Your Trampoline in the Winter?

This can heavily depend on your location, if your area experiences heavy snowfall it can be best to keep it inside while others in more hot areas can use it without ever experiencing snow even during the peak of winter in December. Use your best judgement, heavy snowfall can weigh down your trampoline and ruin it while strong winds can blow it around your yard.

For anyone with a more moderate winter climate or warmer, you may not need to store away your trampoline. Cold by itself does not typically damage a trampoline, the biggest this to a trampoline is moisture, rain and snow, and any high winds that could fling it around.

Winter Trampoline Care

By just spending a bit of time preparing your trampoline for the coming season you can avoid some of the headaches. First, it’s best to remove frame pads when it’s not in use. Removing them will stop any damage from rain or snow. 

If snow build up the weight can damage the trampoline. So after a snowy night, you can take a broom to it and sweep off the snow. Using a shovel is very ineffective and a snowblower can damage the trampoline if it emits any heat. Also, a weather cover is best when the trampoline is not in use, but be careful; a cover can trap moisture on the trampoline. If you invest in a cover, make sure to take it off regularly to let your trampoline dry and breathe a bit. 

If the wind is your worry more than show then trampoline anchors are perfect. They help to firmly plant the trampoline to the ground and keep it from being blown around when the winds kick up. They are typically a good investment for year-round not just winter as well.

Quick Tips for Jumping During Winter

First and foremost, check the weather and temperature. There’s nothing worse than having fun in the snow and ending up slipping because the trampoline is wet and getting yourself or your kids injured. Jumping when it is snowing is not really recommended and, of course, inspecting the surface of the trampoline for any ice or snow and removing it is best. 

Avoid any loose clothing too, of course bunding up for winter is important especially for kids, but things such as scarfs can get loose while jumping and become a hazard quickly. Wearing tighter clothing is best and making sure all jackets and zippers are done up. Some winter boots, especially ones with ice groping, can be terrible for the trampoline as well. The rough soles can easily damage the surface.
