I drove to a hill 3 hrs away and it wasn't an issue. I just slap them on the roof rack, rain, sleet or snow. Pull them off and hit the hill.
It's never been any sort of issue for me.

I use a plastic garbage bag or two. I want to minimize salt on my metal edges and the edges of others. It's really noticeable on long drives. Your edges without cover will be rusty. If it's a really short drive I won't bother. Anything over 30min. or roads that will be really salty and I cover.

Salt and water accelerates corrosion. If you don't want it on long trips, many short trips will do the same damage.

Another way to protect your edges (and base) on long road trips is to leave extra wax on the board and scrape once you get to where you're going.

painters tape.... something i learned from auto meets. just wrap a layer over the nose of the board when you get there it will peel right off. no harm to stickers or board.

How about an el cheapo rayon bag that you can toss in the washing machine when it gets gross?

If you just want to protect your bindings and keep them clean, you may want to look into this then. Coveralz | Protect your snowboard bindings from all the wear and tear.

They're a new company, heard about them at the snowboard show in Toronto

For fucks sake that is retarded.

Jeesus, do you wear plastic bags over your shoes and leave the protective film on furniture and appliances? Go jump off a bridge

I wouldn't worry too much about protecting your gear with a bag while it's on the rack. The lift lines are WAY more abusive to your board than it being out in the open air while driving to/from the hill. If you ride park at all, then you should view your equipment as relatively disposable. If you're getting more than a season or two out of your board, then I imagine you're riding less than 20 days a year.

As for road salt, I just rinse my boards off when I get home, or at least wipe down the base and edges.
