Snowboards may be checked in on Air Canada flights in place of a regular piece of checked baggage.

Every snowboard item that is checked in separately will count as one piece of checked baggage. Snowboard boots are the only exception (see details below). [AMZ asins='B07F8BZXFB,B085129W7P,B074FV9XFX,B083178YD3,B09HP9W8G8,B01MZYYICB']

If your baggage count (item of sports equipment + number of other bags to be checked) exceeds the maximum number of items allowed by your fare type, additional checked baggage charges will apply.

All other additional checked baggage rules apply, unless otherwise indicated below.

Snowboard boot bag:
One boot bag is permitted per passenger and won’t count as a piece of checked baggage if:
it’s carried along with skis or snowboard and
it contains only boots.

A boot bag will count as a separate piece of checked baggage if:
it contains - or is designed to contain - other items, or
it’s not carried along with a snowboard or set of skis.
If brought on board as carry-on baggage, ski and snowboard boots must be carried and remain in the boot bag at all times.

One snowboard bag with one or more snowboards carried together in the same container count as one piece of checked baggage.
Snowboards must be packed in a rigid and/or hard shell case specifically designed for shipping / travel.
No oversize charge applies to snowboards. But, any overweight charges will apply.
See snowboard boot bag information above.
