Planning a ski trip? Save money and win big with Alaska Airlines

Sponsored by Alaska Airlines

Many Hawaii travelers plan their annual ski trip this time of year, and Alaska Airlines has deals to help families ski and save money!

When it comes to skiing and snowboarding around the U.S., Alaska Airlines offers flights to the most pristine ski destinations in the West. By Flying Alaska, travelers ski free at more than a dozen resorts, including Alyeska, Big White, Sun Valley, Mt. Bachelor and many others. Travelers can get ski deals at any of these locations by simply showing their Alaska Airlines boarding pass.

Traveling with personal skiing gear? Alaska Airlines makes flying with equipment easy and more affordable. Instead of charging oversize bag fees, skis and snowboards (along with all other sporting equipment) are treated as regular checked bags, which are only subject to standard fees. Eligible Alaska Airlines Visa cardholders also get their first checked bag free, which includes their ski or board bag. Find out more about booking a ski trip with Alaska Airlines here:
