Not 100% sure what you mean by kiosk vs desk? Do you mean curbside vs regular inside desk?


Either place should work. Here is more, from this SW site


  • Snow ski equipment, including skis or snowboards, ski boots, and ski poles: including one pair of skis or one snowboard, one set of poles, and one pair of ski/snowboard boots encased in a container(s) acceptable to Carrier. When substituting ski equipment for a free bag, Southwest Airlines allows up to two bags (containing one set of snow skis, ski poles, and ski boots) to count as one item, even if they are packed and tagged separately.

    Note: Snow ski equipment will not be subject to excess size charges. However, excess weight charges may apply.
