Winterizing Your Trampoline | Winter Care and Maintenance | Bow Instructions for Gifting

Disclosure: This post was written in conjunction with the Springfree Trampoline Ambassador program. We were provided a trampoline for review. All opinions are 100% our own.

I was thrilled when Springfree Trampoline asked OurKidsMom to be an ambassador for the world’s safest trampoline. If you remember back in September I shared our installation experience with you through photos, words and a video. Next year I will be sharing my thoughts on safety as well as eventually a trampoline giveaway!

Winter is now knocking down our door here in mid Missouri and with our first dusting of snow underway I thought it was perfect timing for a post about winterizing your Springfree Trampoline.

Fortunately for us Springfree Trampolines are made of all-weather parts. Construction includes a powder-coated galvanized steel frame, rust-free composite rods, a UV-resistant polypropylene mat and safety enclosure. Therefore these trampolines can stay out all winter and many happy customers have testified that they enjoy jumping in the snow.

Winter care is short and simple…

Regularly clear off accumulated snow from your trampoline. The most effective (and safest) snow removal tool is a soft bristle brush or broom.

To clear the mat, start by standing at the opening and reach into the center of the mat. Slowly pull the snow load toward you and off the trampoline edge. Do not use hard tools like a shovel because it can damage the mat and/or the net.

Complete this simple task and rain, shine or snow your Springfree Trampoline will always be ready for jumping.

Springfree trampolines are fun in the winter, too!

Use your trampoline to build a snowman or snow forts on/under/around and even jumping to combat the cold. As long as you keep the accumulated snow off the mat, the possibilities are only as limited as your imagination.

 

Giving a Springfree Trampoline as a present this holiday season?

Would you like to wrap it with a huge gigantic bow?

Springfree created this how-to video just for such an occasion.

All in all, Springfree encourages jumping year round (with proper care the trampoline should not suffer from dampness, cold or snowfall) and jumping in the cold really warms you up fast and the endorphins from jumping sure helps you beat the winter blues.

Make sure you have some yummy goodies and hot chocolate ready for when the kids come in!

Hi Ellen,

With a Springfree you CAN keep it up all year because of the all weather components. It’s a huge plus! :)
