How Many Resorts Have Lockers?
OK – lockers might not be something that springs to mind when you think about your next snowboarding trip, but have you ever wondered why more snowboard resorts don’t have lockers on the mountain?
I say more, because I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen some lockers in a lift station somewhere, up the mountain – but I don’t remember where that was. They might not even have been for public use…
But wouldn’t these be handy for mountain users? Am I the only one who wants to take a camera up the hill, but not carry it around all-day long? Use it in the afternoon when the sun comes out? And what about lunch? I’d make my own lunch for sure, but there’s no way I’m jamming it in a pocket all morning. Spare layers? Goggle lens…
Sure, lots of people ride with a pack, but I prefer riding without one, it feels less restrictive. I’d happily pay to put my stuff in a locker rather than have it weighing me down while I’m riding around.
Flexibility in Fernie. When we stayed at the Cornerstone Lodge in Fernie, our apartment was right next to the base lift – at the foot of the slopes. I really enjoyed the flexibility of being able to drop things back, or collect something, without needing to move too far from the hill. Super convenient.
I think lockers near lift stations or restaurants could bring the same type of flexibility.
