Transporting a ski bag by plane
Recreational skis are generally longer than sport skis, and all generally measure up. A bag can be used to carry several pairs of skis.

You should take with you not only winter clothes, but also special ski clothes, such as thermal socks, a jacket and special ski pants. These clothes will help you stay warm and feel less cold during your trip.
Protect your ski equipment to prevent damage
Traveling with sports equipment by plane is always a headache. Whether you’re going on vacation or attending a sporting event, you need to pack your gear. This means lugging heavy bags full of clothes, shoes and other accessories.
Here are some useful tips to ensure that your trip goes smoothly, and that your Snowboard equipment will be transported in the hold of the plane without the risk of being touched or damaged.
Checked baggage is not necessarily treated very well, so we advise you to invest in a good cover to protect your skis. The best solution is to opt for a rigid cover that absorbs shocks. If you ski with a helmet, also remember to protect it well or take it with you in the cabin. Be aware, however, that your helmet is then considered as luggage and not a simple accessory.
