Prosper is correct. However, the prop planes that Delta/Skywest fly between SLC and JH are so small that you can barely stow your boots in the storage area above the seats. I had no choice but to check them in.
So check this out... they delivered everyone's suitcases (which contained my boots), but left our skis in Salt Lake overnight (weight and space restrictions). I was hoping that they would fly them up on the very first flight the next morning, but all of their flights for that day were booked. So they had to find a bus to drive them up to Jackson. But because of the Olympics, there were no buses to be found until late afternoon the next day.
The skis arrived late the following night, so I grabbed a pair of nice demo skis on Delta's tab. I felt especially bad for a group of four who received neither skis nor clothes! For their first day of skiing at JH, they had to rent EVERYTHING.
Between paying for everyone's rentals, and the additional shipping costs they incur (regularly, it appears), it would seem logical to assign larger planes to that route, but what do I know...
