Cost of shipping?

Anyone know how much they charge to ship a board or board and bindings?

I use The-house.com, Backcountry.com, Evogear.com and the shipping is always under $20 bucks for usps and I usually get it in under a week. Any of the sites abouve have a shipping quote using your zip code before you purchase.

Sorry, I guess I should have specified. My buddies and I are planning a trip to Colorado this winter and I was going to ship my board and bindings to his parents house there in Colorado from here in Alaska. I was hoping someone might have an idea what UPS, Fedex, or USPS would charge for that.

Is there a reason why you can't take it on the plane?

Well thats what I'm trying to decide...They charge $50 for the "extra bag" and then an extra $75 for it being "oversize" I believe, so I'm trying to find out if I can ship it cheaper than that.

Use the Fedex online calculator.

Go to your local post office.

Also, talk to the plane company and see if they waive the oversize/weight charges for skis/snowboards.

Either way, it's not cheap.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

i know several airlines have an exception to the oversize/overweight charges for sports equipment. Depending on who you're flying with, they'll have different rules though. For example, Air Canada takes 2 checked bags, and because a snowboard/skis is sporting equipment, they just check it as if it is your 2nd bag

One problem I'm having now is not only do I have to pay extra for my snowboard equipment luggage on the plane, but once I fly into Denver, the car rental company (Alamo) does not have snowboard racks, only ski racks... and my board bag (166cm) probably won't fit in the trunk and we have a full car (5 people) going, so I can't put the snowboard bag in the back seat...

Anyone else have any other options for me?
