Start by not using American Airlines. They beat the living poo out of everything I have ever checked with them. I just returned tonight from Belize C.A. and my wife's suitcase had a big tear in it. This was the second time she used the bag and the first time (also w/ American) they burnt it, yes, burnt. Must have been against a tailpipe or something. Rule #1 with airlines if it's important to you do not check it. Period. I would never trust those clowns with my ski if I ever wanted to ski it again. I know guys will say get fin protectors, box it etc., just call ahead and find a decent ski to use when you are there is my best advice. I travel a lot and buy cheap suit cases because Gucci get ripped up just like Walmart. Seriously, I have had to wrap my suitcases in plastic airline bags more than once. If they can rip a zipper right off your bag (not the pull, the WHOLE ZIPPER) just think how that foil will react next time you ride it. Arregato Mr. Rent Ski
