Ski Bag For Travel

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello!

 

I am taking a trip later this month to Snowmass and its my first time traveling with my own skis. I'm not sure what this process is going to be like and what to expect so I have a few questions.

 

What kind of bag should I get? The price range for these are from $29- $200. Can I get away with a cheaper one? Do I need one with wheels to make the airport walk easier? Would this be considered my 1 luggage bag and if so should I pack all my clothes in it? Any suggestions for this would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance

Wheels are nice, but not mandatory. How nice of bag you need, Depends how much you'll be traveling.
Yes, your ski and boot bag are considered 1 bag. I always pack clothes in my ski bag and never check my boots.
Baggage claim in Aspen is 20 yards from the cab/shuttle stand.

Great, thank you for the response. I'll be traveling (by air) about once a year. We are flying into Denver and driving to Aspen.

Welcome to EpicSki!   I know you didn't ask about boots, but I suggest you take a look at the advice in this thread in the Beginner Zone about traveling with boots on planes.

For once a year trips, a basic bag could work.  I went with a hard case with wheels to get better protection for my skis without having to fuss with padding,  Plus I'm too short to carry a non-wheeled ski bag easily.  Been there, done that. Have been very happy with a Sportube 2.

Going in/out of Denver, get a wheeled bag.
