    Big Sky has an outdoor bag check.

    Don't see why they can't do the same. Especially if they're going to do outdoor BBQ

That way people could put ski boots on closer to the base, then dump their crap in a outdoor locker. While using the outdoor locker, people can be polite and social distancing while going to their lockers.


    Why invest in something that is temporary! Your stuff would get cold in any case and on days where it is snowing and blustery they might even freeze.

    I would not be surprised if they set up tents with a bag check.

    I think it would be a wise investment. Once this is over next year, they could bring the lockers inside. When you go out west, you never see day bags under tables or hanging up in the cafeteria or restaurants. They have a dedicated room with Lockers so there won't be clutter in the cafeteria. Infact if you have ever been to Snowmass, they have lockers set up right outside the shuttle drop off.

    Should be interesting how ski areas manage their bottom line this year.
    Opening later in season and closing earlier in spring
    Cut their snow making budgets down
    start charging $30 for a cheeseburger instead of $15
    Maybe charge for premium parking at the base.
    Also I know a lot of resorts hire seasonal foreign students each year.

    I have skied 14 ski areas in Colorado and I do not see an abundance of lockers. Keystone has may be 100 or so on the mountain house side and maybe 50 on the village side. Vail has some outdoor locker areas spread out. Breck has some at each base area. But a large number either boot up at their car or at the lodge.

    Most of the foreign students had gone back home.

    That story missed the biggest nugget. In the screening questions, they include if you have a RUNNY NOSE you are asked to not ski that day! Didn't realize that was a symptom of Covid. Ridiculous, it's winter and we are being asked to be outside ALL SKI DAY as much as possible. Who would get a runny nose from that?
