Traveling with Ski Gear

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Silly question i know.     i am planning to bring a carry on bag with personal stuff on the plane when i go skiing but also want to bring my new boots with me (dont wanna take a chance checking them).  Also i have a connecting flight and am always concerned about lost luggage during the switch. what would be the best way to get everything on the plane?  I can just bring a backpack and take the boots in the box they came in when i bought them i suppose

More than you want to know about traveling with ski gear on planes:

You do not need the box.

It's easy. Major airlines allow 2 pieces of carry on. Just get a ski gear backpack e.g. Transpack, Hot Gear bag, and a cabin sized roll on bag. Pack your boots, helmet, goggles etc in your back pack, and all your ski essential clothing in the roll on, or better yet, wear it (in case the airline forces you to gate check a bag). Everything should fit in the overhead (except maybe small regional planes). If not just pull out a boot or helmet when you are putting the bag into the overhead. To make boarding/disembarking easier, put one of your bags in the first empty overhead you find in your cabin (several rows in front of where your actual seat is located). Many airlines board back to front, so the overheads may be full in the back. As you disembark, just grab it as you walk past.
