Storage space and expats from cold climes?

We're from New England and are considering a move to HK. We have a lot of winter gear that will get no use in HK. But what about a winter trip to Switzerland or even S. Korea for skiing? Or just back to the US to visit family (two different US cities that will be cold). It seems strange to store our boots, gloves etc for 50+ weeks but what's the alternative? What do most of you do with those uncommonly needed but still needed things?

thanks to all for a great site and board -
