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!

    oh my goodness – how cute! I never thought about trampolines in the winter, and caring for it, good points. I like the bow, I think it would be fun for all ages.

    We dont have a trampoline but I always thought people took them down every year. I didnt know they could be kept up.

    • Hi Ellen,

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

    Thanks for sharing the video! Love the bow!

    What if you choose to close it for the winter? What is the best way to do so? I used a tarp over it last year but wasn’t happy with the results. To much snow & ice build up. Thanks.

    • To be honest, I’ve never “closed” mine. My children don’t bounce on it much in the winter, but we found it’s fairly easy to go out and sweep the snow off when it gets heavy. Tipping it sideways might work, but then you have snow/ice on the sidewalls. Have you tried just leaving it exposed and sweeping it?

      Wish I could help more. Heather

    Children loves to jump on something. A trampoline is consider as a jumping tool and also a fun toy. So you can collect a trampoline for your kids and also for your family. Nowadays trampoline is becoming popular.

    Nowadays trampoline has become an attractive sport for both adults and children. But still many of us don’t know the proper usage which sometimes sees in the form of injury also. And your points are very useful for all.
