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'm going to Denver for the first time in a few weeks. I'll be travelling lite with a backpack and smaller "purse" size bag. Is there a locker in downtown area where I can store the knapsack for a few hours while I walk around downtown. I know some cities have lockers at the greyhound or union station but I can't find that information anywhere on the web.
Other advocates of lockerless schools also cite reasons such as reducing noise by eliminating the clang of dozens of locker doors, or creating a more appealing environment aesthetically. It has also been claimed that removing lockers provides good training for students by forcing them to be more efficient in managing their books, and taking the time to plan what books they will need, and carrying only those ones.
These things have been incredibly helpful; my daughter has used them for three years now and they keep working every year. I bought two as she has a tall locker, and these things certainly keep her organized. The paint hasn't flaked off the metal after this long, and nothing has come apart. Overall, this is the best locker shelf I've seen out there. Durable, long-lasting, and well worth the money!
