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

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!

do not ever come to SLC/Utah - unless you want to wait in the lift line for 30 minutes for a crappy run and mormons yelling at snowboarders all day.
Mormons do not yell, they are the politest people I have ever met. LIES From Wasatch Man! SLC is what you are after.

No seriously, Mammoth is awesome and if you end up there I can help you avoid said lines and other BS.

SLC and Denver aren't far at all from LAX and if you time it right, you might only be out a couple hundred bucks. Southwest is the shit for flying, as they are relatively cheap, and don't charge you to check in snowboard bags. They are very easy going.

LMAO.

Yeah, I would NOT ride Mt High if I flew 15 hours across the pacific. Save it for a real resort.

your post makes no sense. Besides, rush hour traffic is 24/7 in LA.
