I normally store them in the garage , but need the room this year .

I usually cover our boat with the tarp, then throw one of those blue nylon tarps over top..just to keep the wetness off. Just make sure you cover the sleds well, as to prevent fading..coloured skis fade especially well if left in the sun.

Rocketman is right.  Just cover it well, but make sure you allow for a little air circulation so things don't sit wet all summer.

I agree put a boat tarp over it and make sure that it is mouse proof. Steel wool is the best for that because mice hate steel wool. Kill all the mice

Put the baby on blocks to lift her off of the trailer so condesation does not get to the track or the skis.
Remember to caost her periodically woth some WD40 such as the suspension components and skis to prevent rusting.

I would try to place her in a shaded area if at all possible.

Just my two cents.........

Another thing that works just as well as moth balls are fabric softern sheets.  Believe it or not, but they work great.  I use them on my Camaro every year I store it.  Plus they smell a heck of a lot better than moth balls.  Just put them in random places, and try not to get them too wet.  Also, like everyone else said cover it good, but not too tight.  Gotta make sure it can release the moisture it might collect.
