First out of state trip

I hope I am putting this in the right place..
My wife and I are going out west for the first time and I am 1 way non stop flight but am trying to get a idea on bag fees. I think I am reading the site right but it says 100$ each way for 1 snowboard bag. That will be 400$ Does this sound about right? We both were going to take 2 boards and boots in each bag and I hope its under 50lbs but just wondering if the price sounds right.

i actually just flew from new orleans to denver then after the snow denver to L.A. It cost me $25 each flight for the snowboard bag as it was just considered a bag. That was with United and frontier was $20 per bag so i can't speak for other airlines. I know southwest doesn't charge for luggage but may have a charge for snowboard/skis etc.

Any time that I have flown, a board bag was just considered a bag. I have a pretty big bag and have fit 2 boards, boots, and most of my clothes for a week in the bag. If you're under 50 lbs, then it should be the regular bag rate of 25 bucks or whatever the rate is. I usually throw the bag on my bathroom scale just to be sure I'm good. I've had some attendants let a 65 lb bag slide-on by, and I have had others try to charge me extra for a 52lb bag (that's ok, I'll just take a few things out.)


I thought you traveled somewhere, last year? Where are you heading?

Last year my wife and I went to okemo in Vermont and we just drove because I live in VA. This is are 3 year snowboarding and we never had a honeymoon so we are going to keystone for 2 weeks..

We are going to hit up breckingridge and A-basin also. I told her it figures are luck that the places are not even all the way yet...lol. I figure it still will be better then anything we have rode. We started 3 years ago and just are crazy about it now. It's all we think or talk about...lol

I had 2 boards 2 pairs of boots my outerwear and goggles etc I always putt bindings in a bag surrounded by clothes so they won't get busted up, I'm fairly certain that it was under 50lbs.

I flew united no problem with a board bag loaded down with all my gear last year. Worst you should get hit with is the standard bag fee.

With delta the snowboard bag doesn't count extra. If you have a delta CC you don't pay bag fees either. Just make sure its under 50
