All going well we will be skiing in Italy in Jan 2020. We will be travelling as a family of 4 (2A,2C) for about 7 weeks through 5 countries, with the skiing part in the last 2 weeks. I have family in the far north of Italy who I can ship stuff to. How would you package two pairs of ski boots and two helmets, plus goggles, gloves to send them to Italy? We can't hire boots as ours are highly customised to enable us to ski pain-free with our dodgy feet. Would you do this? I'm a little nervous about sending stuff to Italy generally but I can't see how else to do this. I don't want to fly to Italy as our first stop as it doesn't work with our plans.
