Summer Ski Storage

We are getting ready to head out for a year-long trip on our Airstream. We are in the mid-Atlantic and plan on leaving in July for the Northeast and then work our way down to the Southwest by fall. Once winter hits, we plan on storing the Airstream (maybe in Salt Lake) and headed up to Montana to ski for a couple months hitting a couple ski resorts on the way up there. Can't wait!

Our plan was to store our skis in a Yakima cargo box for the first and last part of the trip. Everything fits but now I am beginning to worry about the heat on the skis in the cargo box. Anyone ever try this or have experience with this? If so, do you think we will be OK just periodically opening the box when stopped to allow the air to vent out of the box to keep the heat down?

Here in the Salt Lake valley many people keep their skis in storage units during the summer that approach or surpass 135f when it is 95f outside. Never heard anyone ever say their skis got too hot to use the following winter. I personally feel you are way over thinking this.

Inside the Airstream or inside a cargo box on the roof?
