A ski bag is an important piece of your Nordic equipment. Skis and poles are unwieldy to carry around and imagine the mess in the trailer with 70 pairs of skis and poles. A ski bag protects your skis and poles and keeps your stuff together.
Bags are available at the ski shops that fit one pair skis/poles or two to three pairs. Some first year skiers buy the bag for one pair and find when they add another pair of skis when they start classic skiing, there is not enough room in the bag for two pairs. Coaches' Tip: Buy a bag that will take at least two pairs of skis.
