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/ Lockers Denver Colorado
If you are looking for something heavy-duty, or that offers more ventilation, then consider our athletic gym lockers. These showcase our heavier gauge steel all around, which provides your facility with a sturdy storage option. The body and frame are crafted from 16-gauge steel with diamond perforated sides to increase ventilation. Each locker door is then crafted from 14-gauge steel to further increase the toughness and durability. Diamond perforations are also on each door to create the maximum amount of aeration possible which helps to keep locker contents aired out and your locker room smelling fresh and clean. Created specifically for environments with heavier traffic, these are ideal for warehouses, school locker rooms, and training centers which all benefit from the heavier gauge steel that we offer. Available in single tier, double tier, or box styles in beige or gray colors; these also have the advantage of being in our quick ship collection so that you’ll receive them fast.
I purchased these lockers for my husbands engineering office. Several of the men do field work and when they are in the office their STUFF is all over the place. The lockers depth of 18" is plenty wide to accommodate a regular clothes hanger without crowding or having to force it in. It will hold a jacket or rain gear, steel toe or rubber boots as well as a tool belt or small tool kit. Lockers Denver Colorado

One piece, top-to-bottom 16 gauge steel door strike on all lockers for strength and security. We install soft rubber bumpers, at door jamb locations, to cushion door slams which is great for smooth, quiet use in school. Also Lyon steel gym lockers and school lockers for sale have louvers for ventilation. Combo and key locks can be purchased that can be built in to the locker.

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. Lockers Denver Colorado
