What would you take to Utah???

Looking for a little advice for a Utah trip I'll be taking early next year.
I've never been out west to ride so not too sure what to expect.
If this was your quiver what would you take and what you leave at home:

Boards
Flow Quantum 155w ('09/'10) {brand new}
Skate Banana 156w ('09/'10) {brand new}
Nitro T1 158w ('09/'10) {brand new}
Rome Machine 159w ('08/'09) {bought used for rock/rails}
Burton Floater 167w (year unknown) {used quite a bit but def has clean/smooth base, never seen park, nor should it}

Binders (all for boots sized 11+)
Flow M-9 ('09/'10)
Ride Contraband ('09/'10)
Rome Targa ('09/'10)
Burton Custom ('09/'10)

My airline will let me check a board bag for free and it will easily fit 2 possibly 3 boards and 2 sets of binders (un-mounted) along with jacket and pants stuffed around it all for more padding.

We will be staying in Park City for 8 days but only riding there for one or two days so not much park riding going down.....will be looking more for some of the famous Wasatch back country at either Brighton or Snowbird.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Seasons almost here!!!

when i flew into utah last yr..i did plenty of airline research as far as bag limitations....i flew with frontier by the way.

what i mean by that is, they might or may not be anal if they see more than one board in ur bag. the small print says that an oversized bag may be voided of extra fees if for example its a specialized bag for one set of bindings, one board or skiis and one set of boots.

i may be wrong about all this and cant speak for other airlines, but those were frontier's rules and i made sure not to be fucked on the day of my departure

all im saying is maybe ull get away with it, but seriously i wouldnt take that chance

Without me, my board is useless. Without my board, I am useless

I would take the Bannana and the Floater.

Bannana because it will kill it in the park and should do fine on the rest of the mountain.

Floater be cause I'm an old floater rider and this board absolutly rocked so if you have a big powder day you habe a big stick.

I would go with the Rome and Ride bindings

If you can only take one board rock the Nitro
