Yeah again I think we're lucky in the Canadian Rockies. There are 6+ resorts within 3 hours of Calgary, a city of only 1.2 million with basically no metro area to feed it. We get tourists but even on the worst weekends lift lines are only about 10 people deep.

Christmas is another story but regular weekends are a-ok here! I can count on one hand the number of times I've actually stood in a line at Fernie!

Cheers for the tip re Southwest. Air NZ do the same thing here at home on domestic flights with snowboard bags, but not international flights. Sucks because they are really good to fly long-haul on.
When I went to the philippines, my brother told me to buy some golf clubs and bring them. I didn't golf, but we sold them and it covered the luggage charge and still make a couple of hundred. I wonder if you could just buy a snowboard here and sell it back in NZ
