Snowboard and Gear


One of your favorite things is traveling the world to tear up the best snow possible. But packing, getting through the airport, and dragging around clunky baggage is not the best part of that process, right? Well, you can be sure that your next trip is as smooth sailing and stress-free as physically possible by taking just a few measures before you fly:

Pack Smart

Your packing needs to be as specific and neat as you can. Packaging in a cautious and organized manner creates more space. Use genius folding methods like the roll; by balling up your tees, undies, and thermals, you'll make more room for other space eaters like your binding and snow goggles.

Always remember to keep it paired back. Your trip will likely center around one thing, boarding, so keep the casual wear or party gear to a minimum. Try to find layers and thermals that can be multipurpose; these are a great space saver!

Use Your Board Bag Wisely

Multipurpose your board bag at your check-in! Remember to consider the potential of your bag. You can pop all your casual wear and anything you can afford to wrinkle in. A few hoodies, thermals, undies, and tees on either tip will protect your snowboard while braving the journey!

Multipurpose Your Carry On

Your carry-on is your opportunity to bring as much of your gear onto the plane as possible. Use your boot bag to minimize the clutter in your checked bag. Carrying your boots with you will mean that you can be sure that no harm will come to them; it's also an excellent opportunity to smuggle some sneaky extra essentials by stuffing them with socks! Ensure that your snowboard tools, wax, and safety kit are in your checked bag; these items won't make it through airport security.

Be Thoughtful

Being thoughtful in packing and traveling is one of the most impactful things you can do. Taking minimal clothing, precise folding methods, and clipping your helmet to your boot bag will make all the difference at both ends of your journey.

Wear your jacket on the plane to save room in your board bag; if you're tight on space, layer up on the tees and thermals for the flight. You might get a little warm, but just think of the extra room in that bag!


Consider the trip you're taking and who you're taking it with. You can skip out on some extra casual clothing if it is action-packed. If it's more social, pair back the boarding accessories. You can rent a lot of the gear you'll need on the slopes, or if you're concerned about packing, you can always ship your kit ahead of your trip - this is best for long snow stints!
