But now, the city has announced it will spend $160,000 on two pilot projects to provide 210 more storage lockers for those experiencing homelessness. Some service providers say the announcement is a move in the right direction for the city, which has found itself the subject of harsh criticism and even a federal class-action lawsuit over the enforcement of its camping ban.
I agree with the suggestion about shipping your skis and boots, especially if you are not going to be using them after the Vail portion of your trip. Are you staying in LA for awhile or just making a connection there? If you are staying at a hotel in LA perhaps you could talk to them about having your equipment shipped there and stored as most hotels do have some sort of luggage storage facility. Hikers on the Appalachian Trail often ship supplies to US post offices that are in towns easily accessible to the trail so they don't have to carry everything with them. A lot will depend on your actual itinerary and whether you are stopping over in LA or just making a connection. You'll likely need to do some research and maybe think outside the box. I know it's always much nicer to ski on equipment you are used to but renting might end up being your best bet and the least hassle.
Stored my luggage for several hours at Lugden. Great location just across the street from Union Station. Spoke with the owner and he said he owns the parking spot so they are always there during the day. Prices were reasonable and I felt comfortable storing my bags there while I explored Denver. The owner was nice and gave me coupons for some local businesses.
For longer term storage, there are many self storage units around the metro area. Not cheap, but then neither is paying extra baggage fees and lugging around extra stuff not needed for another leg of your trip, as it sounds like Terry might be doing. For example, I found "Downtown Denver Self Storage" with units starting at $45 a month. http://www.downtowndenverstorage.com/
