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.
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.
“In many cases, they’re [homeless] building things like little shanty towns, bringing furniture in and camping out. There have been incidents at night where there have been brawls or loud arguments happening at 3, 4 a.m. waking people up. I do know that several neighbors have complained that they have found human waste in their yards,” said Romero.
They are usually intended for use in public places, and intended for the short- or long-term private use of individuals for storing clothing or other personal items. Users may rent a locker for a single use or for a period of time for repeated use. Some lockers are offered as a free service to people partaking of certain activities that require the safekeeping of personal items.
There are plenty of convenient places to store your luggage in Denver, from downtown to Lincoln street to Capitol Hill and Commons park. The cost is just US$6 per day, and check in time is just 3 minutes. So basically, in the same time it took to make that instant cup of Ramen before rushing to the airport, you can be in and out the door with no luggage to weigh you down.
