The 10 Best Ski & Snowboard Travel Bags of 2022/2023
– Staff Luggage Picks –


The snow products we feature in our blogs have been independently selected and reviewed by our Auski team of snow specialists.

Inexperienced skiers and seasoned pros alike face the same problem when travelling with their equipment: the dreaded hassle of carrying it all. Although it is a necessary part of any skiing or snowboarding trip, lugging around your skis or snow gear through the airport (if flying) or around the mountain is enough to make you question whether or not to head to the snow at all. Even without the gear, a minimalist traveller’s luggage list would be impossible to manage with just their skis and a pair of ski boots or snowboard, snow helmet, and ski poles.

Packing frugally is not the only option. A good ski bag can help alleviate the burden of lugging all of your ski essentials to the mountain. The difference between a good ski trip and a bad ski trip is as simple as finding the right ski luggage. For every type of skier and snowboarder heading to the snow, below are the best options picked out by our snow specialists.

How to Choose the Right Snowboard or Ski Bag

There are a few things to keep in mind when looking for the best ski or snowboard bag. Consider the bag's dimensions first. How many pairs of skis or boards are you bringing? Many ski bags can hold up to two pairs of skis and some snowboard bags can hold two boards, so think about how much space you'll need for your gear before purchasing a bag. Even if you're only bringing one pair of skis, many seasoned travellers recommend packing a larger bag to accommodate bulky winter clothing such as jackets, pants, and boots.

The bag's mobility should also be considered. You'll need a wheeled ski bag if you plan on making any stopovers during your trip, or navigating to and from your accommodation. Using a roller ski or snowboard bag is a good idea in general because it makes moving your luggage around much easier. Also, if you choose a bag without wheels, be sure to pick one with a wide, soft-padded strap for ease of transporting.

Before purchasing a ski bag or snowboard bag, if travelling abroad or interstate, it's a good idea to check the airline's baggage policy. If travelling locally, check the size of your bag to make sure it fits in your car. If you plan on flying interstate or overseas for future snow trips, again, check airline’s baggage policy to help you choose a bag suited to future use. When flying with snow gear, a single pair of skis and a pair of boots are counted as one piece of checked luggage by most airlines. However, if you're flying with a certain airline, you may be required to bring your ski boot bag as your only carry-on item, so it’s best to be prepared and check with the airline you plan to fly with.  

Any skier or snowboarder, no matter how experienced or inexperienced, should invest in a high-quality ski bag or snowboard bag, they also come in handy when storing your skis or snowboard in the off season.

Any of these top-rated choices below, picked out by our snow specialists, will ensure that you arrive at the alps stress-free and ready to hit the slopes.
