Default SW Airlines and other Snowboard Policies?

I'm going on a trip back to Tahoe this winter and will be traveling on either Southwest or AirTran Airlines and I'm confused about their specific policies. SW states that "Snowboard equipment includes one snowboard and one pair of boots." I called and asked if you could pack other gear in there and they said it should be OK but the lady on the phone didn't sound completely positive about it. Air Tran simply states "Snowboarding equipment - One (1) snow board will be accepted when packed in a case designed to prevent damage to snow boards. The snow board will be accepted only upon completion of a Limited Release Tag." No mention of boots or anything else.

Has anyone used SW and did they allow you to stuff the rest of your gear in their provided it is under the 50lbs limit? Also I assume the dimension limit is waived since no snowboard bag could come under that (I'll be using a Dakine low roller 165 BTW)? Same question for AirTran.

All input appreciated but especially those who have actually traveled with their board with either one of these Airlines.

Can't wait to get back to Tahoe, the 350 vertical of SE Michigan is killing me, but my jibbin is getting a lot better.

Put it all in a quality padded bag and you'll be fine.
