There is an art to packing your snowshoes and poles into the bag when you are riding too so make sure you work out how you are going to do it before you hit the mountain. Also 3 piece poles are the go
Thanks ETM. I was thinking the same - a small/medium sized bag would likely be fine?

Curious why Vertical board carry is preferred to horizontal? I was just thinking horizontal carry would be easier as it avoids hitting the board with your legs. Problem is, I'm finding not many boards do horizontal board carry.
