    I carry a Transpack bag and put my boots on in the lodge. Would be too awkward to boot up from the back of the car. I tend to overpack (Boy Scout approach) but all that does is make my bag heavier...doesn't really affect the space it takes up in the lodge.

    I remember skiing in UT and the only other folks I saw with Transpack bags were from New England. Looked like most people booted up in their condo.

    And talk about hyperbole. We're talking about the size pack you see people wearing everyday while they actually ski. I could do that, I but don't like the feel of a pack on my back while I'm on the hill.

    To each their own. You have all these items yes? I store them in the bag full time after washing. Whether it be at home between trips, on a day trip or if I'm heading to the mountain for a couple of days or more. Bag comes out of the closet, into the car, then out of the car and into the lodge. Easier to carry than a set of skis. Pretty darn simple to have access to all that I might need no matter the weather within as much time/hassle as it takes to walk into the lodge and take a leak.

    But, hey, suit yourself. You seem to spend a lot of time at home skipping skiing early season complaining the snow isn't good enough or throughout the middle of the season when you deem 5 degrees too cold. And you call others high maintenance? okayyyyyy
    All valid points. Plus we know you only ski the gnarliest of gnar so where else are you going to put the tranceiver, shovel, etc.

    My daughter boots in the parking lot when she skis with her friends. She keeps all the gear in the car and boots up in the parking lot. She's a poor college student and doesn't want to spring for the locker. Often I find it to be a long walk from my car to the lodge and I find it easier to carry everything, often over icy surfaces in the parking lot, if I have my regular boots on so I'll pay the $5 for the locker. With a backpack I have my hands free to carry my skis and boots and make just one trip.

Mommy, he took my toy!!

    I booted up in the car during college and for a couple years after while living in Stowe. It was a bit different than my current scenario of 2+ hour day trips 90% of the time I ski. There I'd always park in the middle Gondola parking lot. That lot is ski in, ski out. I'd have anything extra I might need in the car.....as well as beers, grill, and tailgating supplies.

    Pack it in, pack it out. Simple enough. As a former smoker, I agree that most smokers are pretty oblivious when it comes to throwing butts around. I look at it this way: If I wouldn't do it on my own property, why would I do it anywhere else?

    Back to the lodge thing. I usually only bring a bag in if the resort offers free bag checking. I don't like leaving my stuff out. I know theft is rare, but my gear is like my children. It cost me a lot of money and I am very attached to it. I'll leave my boots out. If someone really wants my stinky, beat up old timberlands, they can have them. I get them free from work anyway. I'd just be annoyed having to drive home in just socks.

    I have a Burton Heli-pack that is slim enough to not be a bother when riding, but fits enough stuff to not need the lodge or trips to the car. I usually carry water, some clif bars, a spare pair of gloves, spare lens, multi-tool, and maybe an extra layer if I'm not sure about the weather. If I'm at a big resort where a lot of traversing may be necessary, I'll pack my collapsible poles. I like riding with a pack now that I'm used to it. Besides having my stuff with me, it also protects my back in a fall and keeps it warm on lifts without backrest padding.

    I'm a lot like that with my car. All season I've been driving around with my snowshoes, hiking poles and a day trip backpack in the rear seat just in case I want to do some snowshoeing. Not to mention the usual tools (toolbox, jumper cables, battery charger, collapsible shovel) plus extra clothes, flashlight, blanket, food/water in case I get stuck someplace.

    In the summer I have my beach chair, towels and blanket taking up residence in the back seat. You never know when you might need them. Come in handy.

I just can't imagine why people come to enjoy a beautiful place and decide to uglify it by littering. They probably complain about bears too. What a bunch of asshats.
    This is a common thing, people go to state and county parks or remote sections of roads to dump trash. I don't understand why on earth someone would do this. WTH wrong with their garbage can? Luckily NJF&G has been cracking down on this recently and has posted the info. The fines are sometimes small (TOO SMALL), but hopefully the public shaming campaign has an impact.
