I am going to be checking my ski on a flight this spring. I can’t fit a sportube into the car we’ll have in Florida. I am wondering if anyone uses a soft sided bag (such as a downhill ski bag) and pad the heck out of the ski/use a fin firkin inside. Any thoughts on this…risks I’ll run. I guess I would think breaking the ski would be unlikely and if it is adequately padded it might be okay…but that does not seem to be the consensus based on what I’ve read. Any thoughts?
