By: Kevin Katsafanas: Ski & Snowboard Bags Buyer | October 26, 2022

 

Traveling to ski is ridiculously exciting. There’s nothing better than packing up your gear and heading off to an exotic location to make some turns. It’s a big part of what makes the ski lifestyle so great. But, before you can experience the novelty of heading to a new area to ski, you’ve got to get there first. And traveling with ski gear can be a real pain in the rear. But, it doesn’t have to be that way, and the best first step to making sure your skis get to your destination in one piece is choosing the right ski bag. A good ski bag will protect your skis from rough baggage handlers, keep your gear consolidated in one place, and make it much easier to haul your skis around the airport. And all of the best ski bags accomplish that. What sets them apart are the smaller details of how they go about that goal.

Everyone has different priorities for their ski bags, so we’ve highlighted a range of bags that all have their own strengths. So, if you’re looking for a minimalist option to haul one pair of skis, you’ll find it on this list. And if you’re looking for a big bag with the capacity for all your gear and a couple of pairs of skis, we’ve got that too. The key is to think about what your priorities are when traveling with skis and choose the bag from this list that best meets them.

Growing up in the northwest I took to snowboarding when I was 13 and spent most weekends up at Snoqualmie riding the park. As I grew as a rider I traded out rails and jumps for more freeride terrain found on the other side of I-90 over at Alpental. With evo in my backyard, I spent countless weekends hounding the shop staff about gear. Finally, when I was 19 years old I found my way into a full-time position selling snowboards at the Seattle store. In the decade since I've worn a number of hats in the outdoor industry in addition to talking gear, including spending time as the Seattle store's marketing and events coordinator. 9 years later and I am still here at evo in my role as the Buyer for men's techwear, and ski/snowboard bags.
