While the ski season winds down in the northern hemisphere, and the souther hemisphere embraces the changing of seasons we, the NH dwellers are going through our end of season rituals.

What rituals do you(Souther Hemisphere dwellers) have while ramping up for your ski season?

I try my boots on to get my feet used to something other than sandals
I pull my ski clothing from the closet and make sure they still fit. Last year I had to lose a few lbs. :rolleyes:
I start to switch the shop tools from bike to ski tuning.

Lets hear it. What do you do?

I start by following the sales and buying replacement socks mostly.
Dust off the boots and give them a try
Wax and tune skis
Ponder which skis can be turned over
Find my poles
Ponder the glove situation
Check goggles and ponder replacement

Change oil n filters in truck, wheel alignment, ponder tyre state.

Stock up on hay for the critters

Get the cars ready, make sure tyres are in good condition, services up to date, antifreeze stuff in the windscreen washer, alpine diesel in the ute, throw the snow shovels/chains etc in the back of the cars.

Get all the ski clothes out of storage, give them an airing

Start wafching the weather charts with a little more intent

Get my flu vaccine, don't want to get sick in the middle of the biggest snowstorm of the season;)

Main thing you need this time of yesr is a little patience:)

I have a well practiced routine:
1) talk myself into a pre-season fitness regime
2) go to the gym once then ignore point 1)
3) talk myself into a pre season ski tune
4) dig the skis out of the shed then ignore point 3)
5) (re)convince the wife that yes, an EPIC season pass is good value
6) curse the children for growing
7) google "when is the Aldi ski sale?"

Ponder why I got a 4WD which wont fit any of the many chains in the shed.
Continue constructing a Heath Robinson version from previous ski/snowboard racks to fit said 4WD.
Ponder why I am still banned from the US forum. You have some interesting members.
