I'm due to go on a ski trip in Snowmass soon. I haven't flown in 3-4 years. What's it going to be like? What should I do to make it easier as possible? I'm going to Fedex my skis, boots and probably my luggage that I would normally check. Continental is going to charge me for it, so for a few extra bucks it will be at my hotel waiting for me and I don't have to schlep it around. I be traveling only with my carry on. I'm traveling coach as usual.
