Pressure plate sticks to flywheel

Transmission

Vehicle Information: Year: 1986; Engine (Size, Modifications): 3.3 Turbo; Total Mileage: 14800;

I've owned my car since it was one year old and has only 14800 miles on it and it's stored for the winter in a heated garage. The last three springs the clutch has been stuck to the flywheel when I try pulling it out for the first time and can't get it into gear.So after repeated atempts of starting it in gear in 1st and 2nd and reverse it finally lets out a big bang and the clutch releases and then I can get it into gear. Then it's fine all year and happens again in the spring.Any ideas on how to solve, short of putting in a new clutch or keeping the pedal depressed thru the winter?
