When flying into the US your baggage allowance carries through. Turn left after clearing customs at JFK to check them right there - no need to take them to JetBlue's terminal.

When flying out of the US your bags will go straight to Dubai. If you want to short-check them to JFK they can do that as well.

JFK has storage locations including Terminal 4 Arrivals, haven't used them though.


I am not sure about Ski Equipment, the best way would be to call JetBlue - they have good phone support (actually US based I believe, not outsourced)

All this is assuming you have the same ticket for Emirates and JetBlue sectors.


Edit: When are you in NYC? I would honestly not recommend staying at a hotel near the airport unless you have a really short layover or weird flight times.
