Trampoline in Winter - what you do?

Do you cover or disassemble trampoline in the backyard in winter/snow?
Disassembling is quite a work. Was thinking to cover with the waterproof sheet or leave as is in heavy snow.
Pls. share your thoughts/experiences.

My sister tipped hers on the side, so snow didn't accumulate on the jumping surface. She also removed the pads that covered the springs.

I am not sure if this was the proper way of dealing with it, but it seemed to make some sense to me. Their trampoline was purchased about 12 years ago, and is still functional today.

My neighbour did these for few years:
- removed pad and springs
- lean the frame against fence
for winter.

He did the reverse in spring to re-attach the trampoline.

1 piece of warning, be sure the springs, pad, frame in good condition before let your kid(s) jump. Sometimes I get springs fly to my yard.

Strip it down to the frame to make it last. My neighbour gets 3 years out of their year round one. Ours I take apart before snow and it looks brand new.
Gbill2004: Thanks but I'll just smell the couch before/if I buy it.

jonnyb: I go in there like PICASSO and toss the glue everywhere, I don't care what house I'm on.
