    My daughter and her family are going to Vail, CO in February to ski. They would like to ship some of their stuff so that they wouldn't have to carry it all on the plane. The place they are staying is not a timeshare and will not allow them to ship things there ahead of time. Any recommendations?

    Ship the packages to the UPS store in Vail. Pick them up there.

    Ugh...I hate packing for ski vacations. Ski gear - normally bulky. She should invest in a couple of those vacuum bags to suck all the air out of them and shrink down for packing.

    Oh, for the joys of Japanese takuhaibin. I discovered it on a ski trip to Japan and wonder why it isn't more universal. It's a great, low cost shipping service that works for all kinds of packages and parcels and was made so prevalent in Japan by the fact that there is very little luggage storage on the shinkansen.

    I have no knowledge of this service, but at least it exists. https://www.sendmybag.com/ship-skis It's unlikely to be as low cost as the Japanese version, but it will lighten their load.

    I wear as much bulky stuff on the plane as possible. As well, I've learned from experience that I need no regular clothes on a ski trip. Whatever I wear on the plane is my outfit for the whole week. The very casual approach to ski towns means that my jeans and ski jacket will take me anywhere I want to go.
