When travelling with Lufthansa, on "Economy Classic" and above, you can take your sports gear for free, in addition to your regular baggage allowance. For snowboarders, that means you can have up to 3 additional bags, as long as they contain 1) a snowboard 2) boots 3) helmet.
PS. They require you to let them know, that you'll be taking "special baggage" at least 24h before the flight.

lol, pretty sure frontier and southwest, like it says!
Southwest you don't really have to know much, basically show up with all your stuff in a snowboard travel bag, make sure it doesn't exceed 50 lbs, and you're good to go. Can also check an additional bag and take a carry-on, all for free
Frontier is a little bit trickier, and you do pay for everything, with the exception of a small personal item. Their fees depend on the rate that you choose for your flight, and you can do alright with them but you want to know exactly what you're gonna be checking and purchase it ahead of time, otherwise you will be charged extra for absolutely everything! Here's a link with some info for frontier...
if rates and times are similar, I would always go with southwest. good luck!

|lanel||Im flying with my board for the first time this winter and wanted to get a Dakine low roller. Will my 158 board fit in the 157 size bag or should I size up?|

|Maandy||Yes I did not purchase any additional bags, just checked-in my snowboard bag with all the gear inside and did not have to pay any additional charges (I was flying economy).|
