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/
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/
And once again, the reporter can't be bothered to check facts. Based on the master agreement signed in September 2017 by the union and the district, DPS teachers are actually in the midst of a 15% raise - 5% each year for 2017-18, 2018-19 and 2019-20. Now, those are averages, so some are getting more and some are getting less. But no raise in a decade? This reporter is a joke.
Wilderness Exchange is within walking distance of Union and they require you leave a bag with them when you go into the store, they may be willing to stash your bag for a few hours. No guarantee on that, but an option if you can't find anything else. They are only open 10am-6pm on Sundays, so you may have to wait around a bit or pick it up early depending on when you get there and will be leaving.

With traditional package delivery, staff members typically spend a lot of time logging and organizing deliveries. These packages end up taking up valuable floor space and could remain there for a long time if a recipient forgets to pick it up or can't retrieve it during regular office hours. If packages are delivered to the recipient's door, there is the risk of the package being stolen or lost. Most residents would undoubtedly prefer a delivery system with tracking and security measures to keep their items visible at all times even if they're away from home. Lastly, it can be difficult to impossible to store perishable items that need to be refrigerated until the recipient can pick them up. But with meal kit and grocery delivery, this need is only going to increase.
The visually appealing and very durable Traditional Collection is our most widely distributed locker line. Offering the most value for typical locker applications, this collection is available in a full range of spacious sizes, from single- to six-tier configurations, as well as two-person, 16-person and wall-mounted. The addition of our new 2 person Z-Locker completes the Traditional collection. Denver Lockers Click Here

“Fans visiting Sports Authority Field at Mile High should keep in mind that not bringing bags to the stadium will ensure the quickest, easiest entrance and exit to stadium events,” General Manager Jay Roberts said in a statement. “However, we understand there are situations where our fans have to carry personal items or check bags. Based on fan feedback, we are implementing a new locker rental program which will minimize wait times to retrieve checked items.”

The safe solutions are found in memos scattered around the building, which we've detailed the locations of for all of you completionists out there.
Teaming up with the Saint Francis Center, Denver is also planning on adding 200 more storage spaces at the organization’s employment service center, located near the city’s capital building. The contract between the city of Denver and the Saint Francis Center will start on June 1 and with $130,000 for the first year of storage space. After that, the center will be given $100,000 a year if the contract continues.

With the same standard features as the Traditional line, the Traditional Plus Collection is intended for more rugged applications and has matching finish on all sides and top for a finished look. Phenolic Lockers are the material of choice when a high degree of design flexibility is desired or where durability and strength are required. These lockers are fabricated to stand the test of time. The dense components, combined with stainless steel brackets and fasteners, stand up to the most extreme conditions of moisture and humidity. Phenolic is impact, water and corrosion resistant, and does not support bacteria.

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.
I am writing this review because the owner of Lugden, Mic, lost; "gave-away" my girlfriends suitcase when we were in Denver for a wedding the Sept. 15th, 2018 weekend.  I do NOT want anyone to deal with what we went through.  This seemed like a great idea to check our bags and walk around Denver for a few hours before having to catch the train to the airport, but after only checking our bag for an hour we went back by and my bag was sitting on the side of the van and her bag was completely gone! Again, out there for a wedding! She had shoes, jeweler, expensive purses and pictures of her and her deceased father that she takes everywhere with her to keep him close to her; but her bag was gone.  He had no system to track, had zero clue who he had given it and could not call any of the previous people that he had recently given their bags back to them.  He quickly ran off in side as I called to the police to get me his liability insurance policy and stated "Oh man I just remembered, her bag was really heavy right?  Some guy came by and said it was his bag and there were books in it so I let him take it."   WTF!!!!! How does someone take someone's checked bag and run off with it.  To make matters worse because we had a plane to catch I called his insurance company the following Monday and his "Insurance Representative" informed me that Lugged Inc has lapsed on their insurance and has zero liability coverage for instances like this.
