Of your gear is old or you don't like it, leave it at home . I typically always travel with my gear , but I love my gear! If your considering new gear to demo...
Travel with skis typical air costs - $35 each way ( based on second checked bag)
That's $70 total, for $150 you can demo some new skis for a week . But if you need to rent demo boots too... Well baggage fees are definitely cheaper! I love owning my top gear, cause I spend endless hours tuning all year on my gear too .
