The Operator (including employees, agents, and/or contractors of the Operator, the event and the venue) and/or law enforcement officials may access lockers and the locker facility at any and all times and may examine any items, even if such items are in a sealed bag, backpack, suitcase or the like. Any items which may cause a risk and/or nuisance to the Operator, other users, the storage facility, the venue or the event may be removed and destroyed without notice to user and at the user’s expense. User waives any right of privacy to item stored in the lockers.
Some schools in the United States have been reported to have abolished the use of lockers. Security concerns are cited as the reason for this, with the concern being that lockers may be used to store contraband items such as weapons or drugs or pornographic material. There has been some controversy over in what circumstances school authorities or law-enforcement officials are permitted to search lockers, with or without informing the users, or with or without the users being present at the time of the search, and it has been considered a civil liberties issue, particularly in the U.S.
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.
Terry, there are many storage unit places closer to the airport, but then of course you'd have to rent a car. DIA Self Storage, for example, is less than 10 miles away. You can google map Denver International Airport, then "search nearby" for "self storage units" if you think that's something you might want to do. http://www.coloradoselfstorage.com/
