/ Easy Jet and double ski bags
Nothing I can see in their terms but my mate said he got pulled up once and asked to pay for an additional bag even though there was only one.
This suggests two pairs of skis are two "sporting items" under their policy, but there seem to be lots of reports of people getting away with it.
Seems fair as it's double the weight.
I've always taken 2 pairs and never even thought about it. I'm not even too sure where they'd query it? At Manchester and Liverpool you check in then take your skis down to a separate desk run by the airport and not the airline.

I've always done the same but not flown with skis on Easyjet before. My assumpion was that as long as it is under weight it didn't matter but assumptions can end up costing you dear with these things.
Think there is weight limit which matters more thanwhat is in the bag
I think they are carried "limited release", which means they pay you nothing regardless of what happens.
Done this three or four times with no problem with Easyjet, but you never know...
I have got away with two snowboards in snowboard bag on easyjet, although strictly speaking i think you are supposed to carry only one board per bag. I don't see how they could catch you.
By spotting it when X-raying, and offloading the bag as you did not comply with their T&Cs?
If your holiday is dependent on getting your kit there, it's quite a risk to save a few quid on a holiday that almost certainly costs much more.
Do the baggage handlers and security folk have detailed knowledge of each carrier's T&Cs?

I'm pretty confident that this wouldn't happen. If they don't pick it up at the desk then I think you can assume you're in the clear unless they pick up something they consider to be dangerous on the x-ray
No, but if you're flying from, say, Luton, they might have contracted them to do that as the majority airline.
At Stansted, for instance, security do (or at least used to) enforce Ryanair's hand baggage restrictions at the scanners for those who present Ryanair boarding cards (the size is smaller than easyJet's size).
