As snowboarders, traveling to some far off destination to strap in is just about as good as it gets. New terrain, the ever-present possibility of deep snow, and the beauty of travel are only a few of the reasons we scrape together pennies and eat far too many PB&J’s in anticipation of our next trip. But that’s not to say that traveling to ride is all glitz and glam. Anyone who has traveled through an airport or two with a board bag can attest to its innate difficulty.
