Hi! Looking to book a trip to Jackson Hole from NYC.

The ideal flight for me would be a mainline United flight to Denver then a United Express / Skywest Canadair CRJ-700 to Jackson.

Wondering, because they say that the checked snowboard bag must fit this restriction for their regional jets, which is obviously doesn't:

Overall linear dimensions (length x width x height) must not exceed 120 in. (304 cm) for most flights. However, on United Express Canadair regional jet flights the linear dimensions cannot exceed 33 in. x 43 in. (83 cm x 109 cm) and overall linear dimensions must not exceed 98 in. (248 cm).
Has anybody flown on a United Express CRJ flight and had any problems with their snowboard bag?

Mine is a 166.

Thanks!
