Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Wearing ski gear including boots at baggage check to avoid+£££

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
A friend has offered use of villa near Malaga, an hours drive to Sierra Nevada ski resorts.
Flights to Malaga are cheap... As long as you don't take luggage...

Anyone have experience of wearing ski gear at baggage etc check... Including...ski boots!!?
I've heard 2nd hand anecdotes of this being done...

Has anyone actually done this- recently??

I think wearing ski boot puts you firmly in the knob category.

Surely £40-60 for bag when you don't have to pay for accommodation isn't going to break the bank?

I can manage for a week with 'premium' carry on, I. E a wheely case and underseat carry on, which includes ski boots.

I'd love to see the look on the accident investigator's face when he finds a fully clothed and booted skier in amongst the wreckage of the Málaga flight.

I suspect there is good chance you would not be allowed to board wearing ski boots. They could represent a hazard in an emergency evacuation, either delaying your evac while you get them off, or damaging the slide, if still on.

British airways explicitly mention wearing of ski boots on the plane is not allowed but that’s probably just BA for you.

This, even if it's allowed. I wouldn't want you sitting next to me....

But you could easily wear all the rest and put boots in a carry on bag.

Ding ding ding! Right answer....although I also agree that £40 on luggage is hardly a hardship if you're getting room for free.

I got caught out at Luton airport being overweght ... I thought I could share my extra weight on my sons booking .. but they dint allow that.
I just had to take the boots out of the luggage to get it under 23kg.

I carried the boots through security and the nice ladies at Kurt Geiger gave me a huge red carrier bag to put my Salomon boots in.
Apparently anything you buy in the airport shopping area can be carried onto the flights.
