Default Snowboards in a VW Golf

Is there anyone out there that uses a VW golf 4 (1999-2003 model) to ride to the snow? If so does your snowboard fit inside it?
I'm off with a mate of mine to Austria and were using the Golf, just want to make sure 2 boards fit in the boot with the rear seats down, diagonally? I would measure, but the car isn't here at the moment, so chancing it here, otherwise it'll be roof racks
Biggest board is 1.60

thanks

I drive an '07 Rabbit (Golf) and fit my 158 board inside with the backseat folded down. It just fits from the rear of the boot to the back of the front seat. I imagine if my board were any longer I could fit the board diagnally to go between the two front seats no problem.

so if i put it diagonally from say left to right with both seats down the 1.58( thought it was a 1.60) should fit in, or would it have to go between the front seat

Since your longest board is the same size as my board I imagine that it'll fit without having to go between the front seats. No way to know until you try it though.

I have a mk4 GTI but it is currently at the body shop so I can not tell you for sure if it will work, but I am almost positive that if you fold both back seats down and lay your board diagonally it should fit.

100% will fit. I've gone on numerous trips in 2 of my previous Golf III (96 and 97)...you can fit 3 people, 3 boards and gear with 1 side of the seats folded down if you have split folding seats.

I have a 2003 GTI. You will need to fold down at least 1 of the back seats. You'll be fine. With just 1 seat down, I've been able to fit 3 boards, 3 pairs of boots, some book bags, etc. in the trunk.
