was wondering if anyone worked for them or knew first hand. Girlfriend and I are traveling to big ski in january our 1st time there.
do they way the bags together or separate ?
Also the way i am reading it is SKI bag + book bag equals 1st checked bag.
then an actual checked bag would be my second checked bag right?
below is their policy as of 10/6/2013
