I’m planning a trip with the wife to southern France or NW Italy and have a big unknown. We will be skiing for about a week and touring southern France & visiting family for another week. We need to take ski gear (boots, helmets, cold weather clothes) as well as presentable, comfortable clothes for the rest. I think that all the ski gear can fit into a large, but heavy duffel bag, and we can each get by with another case each.
My question is how to get that gear bag over & back the easiest & cheapest. I could ship it to my nephew in Montpellier. Would that be better than taking it as luggage on the plane? I will be dealing with several transfers and, of course, customs. Now that the airlines have become so difficult with their luggage requirements, I am at a loss.
Thanks for your help
