Public lockers are available on all floors of the Anderson Academic Commons for short-term storage needs. Lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To use a locker, enter a 4-digit personalized code for locking and unlocking. Directions for setting the 4-digit code are located inside each locker. Lockers unlock automatically after 24 hours.
When looking at Pallet Racks as a storage solution, consider the needs along with the physical requirements of your business before investing in a complete pallet racking system. Industrial Storage Rack configurations should consider accessibility to individual loads (selectivity), handling time, the efficiency of space utilization (storage density), order fulfillment speed, along with acquisition expenses.
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.
