You're off to Italy next week? :O There's snow?! Where in Italy you headed?

But anyway, yeah - So long as the allowed ski bagage weight is within the limits, they won't mind what's inside the bag.
Skiing: the art of catching cold and going broke while rapidly heading nowhere at great personal risk.

I have had my ski bag contents queried by BA check in at GVA. I lied and got away with it. Remember that most check in staff don't work for the airline and are often incentivised to increase revenue.

I've said this before on another thread, but I like repeating myself - last year we flew with Monarch, ski bags obviously packed to the seams with stuff, no questions asked. The people at the next check in desk, same airline, same situation, were made to take everything not ski/board related out and put into their other luggage.

Totally pointless if you ask me, its all going on the same plane.

I wrap my skis in two pairs of sallos, stuff the empty end with a jacket (My skis are shorter than my bag) and socks for padding at the other end.

I do hope that people from the airlines and BAA and Servisair dont look at this thread......
