I'm trying to find a way to get my gear to SLC ahead of me... However, here's the complicated path. I am flying to Paris for business on 3/9. On the way back we are ending our flight in SLC instead of PHX. My wife is going with me to Europe and back but my (3) kids will be meeting us in SLC on the 14th for the beginning of spring break. I would not want to carry ski equipment through Paris and recheck it just to have it follow me back to the states. Of course the chance of getting lost is there too. My kids will be flying in on southwest, so I can get 6 bags on for free from our home in PHX to SLC. Are there services where you can ship equipment to ahead of time and pickup at a later date? My thought would be like shipping the equipment to a storage facility per UPS for a week before we are there to pick it up.
Has anyone done this or have any thoughts? My REAL wish is to stay in France for a few days and hit the slopes there, but a quick in and out is more difficult than I thought.
