Thanks to Amazon, getting almost anything you delivered directly to you in a matter of days has practically become second nature. Prime members get free two-day delivery, which coupled with the other benefits of membership like Amazon Prime Video, makes the service attractive. But two-day shipping is useless if your packages get stolen. That’s where Amazon Locker comes in. Lockers Denver Colorado
While there are over 2,000 Amazon Locker locations spread out across more than 50 metropolitan areas in the U.S., Lockers still aren’t everywhere. If you live in Nampa, Indiana, for example, you’d have to drive to Boise, Idaho, to pick up your package. If you live in Los Angeles, you’ll have a hundred locations to choose from. Obviously, this issue will improve as the service spreads, but how much mileage you’ll get out of Amazon Lockers wildly depends on your location.  School Lockers Denver Colorado
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
Rebecca, I remember a previous post that a visitor found storage at the bus station, so I called to see if still available, and it is. Lockers are $3 for the first hour and $1 per hour after that. It's difficult to find storage short term because of security/liability, esp. since 9/11. If you are staying at a hotel, they will often keep your luggage for you short term. Lockers Denver
