I'm pretty sure! It kinda depends how nice of a person you get...like I went to windells and they didn't charge me for it when I
Eft but on my return they did....if you can go to the outdoor luggage check in
According to their website, I can substitute ski gear for a free bag, which I get two of with the deal we booked. At least that's the message I'm getting. Hopefully we get someone cool like you described.

i just flew southwest to CO for skiing. no you dont get charged more extra skis, but if its over 50 lbs its $50 extra. i put my boots and two other pairs in a big bag and checked that, but i guess carrying them on is a good idea

i carry my boots a a second carry on that i put in the over head compartments. some airlines will charge the same baggage fee for sports equipment like airtran. my friend had a huge ski bag and he wrapped all his clothes around his skis to protect his gear and to double as his clothing bag

Yeah I fly southwest all the time. Things change dynamically though so don't count on anything anyone is saying. Call southwest to confirm the latest restrictions but.....if your going to a ski destination they typically will take your double bag and a boot bag as free check on. Personally I carry on my boots like others have said but last I checked you can check em for free. Now for some advice. If your ski bag has internal ski straps....USE THEM!!!! I've had two instances now where my bag was returned to me open. Once was tsa and the other time I literally watched the bag cart drop and run over my bag. So now when strapping in my skis I also put that strap through my pole lanyards and helmet strap. Basically anything loose in there has potential to be ejected and don't even get me started on the tards who attempt to feed your ski bag into the baggage conveyor. Any good airport should have a seperate area for oversized bags. Most ski destinations do but returning home is the problem. I fly outta Philly and coming home is the worst. Every time they attempt to feed the ski bag into the conveyor. Every damn time. Good luck though and have a fun trip!
