There’s no better feeling than binding in to your own skis or snowboard for your first run of the day. You know how they perform and what to expect. You know how they are tuned, and you haven’t had to wait in line at the rental shop to pick out equipment that might not be suited to you. But as we know, with airlines look for adding baggage fees wherever they can, getting your gear to and from the airport can sometimes be a hassle.
Unless, you plan ahead and ship instead.
Take the hassle out of traveling with skis or board by shipping your gear to your destination ahead of time in a Sportube hard case. Ship your gear ahead of time and meet your skis or board at your hotel, lodge or condo.
Sportube hard cases protect your gear from being damaged in transit. Simply attach an address and shipping label to your Sportube hard case and ship it with FedEx or UPS. With no extra packaging needed, Sportube hard cases will deliver your gear safely.
With a little pre-planning you will be able to save money by shipping standard ground methods, rather than an express or overnight option, and the provided tracking number will let you watch it all the way to its destination. Depending on the nature of the trip, you can save money on a rental car since you no longer need an SUV or vehicle with a roof rack.
