Looking to make your Colorado or Utah ski vacations a little easier? Sick of having to travel with ski and boot bags or having to deal with rental gear when you arrive at the resort? Rocket Closet could be the service you need!
Rocket Closet is essentially a storage service with pickup and delivery options. If you live within 50 miles of a Rocket Closet location, they’ll pickup your skis, boots, and other gear to store for as long as necessary. If you don’t live within 50 miles, they’ll send you a shipping label for you to send the gear through the mail. When it’s time for your ski vacation, Rocket Closet will deliver your gear to the ski resort of your choice!
Once your ski vacation is over, the company will pickup your gear and return to the safe, climate controlled storage (with insurance included in the membership fee).
Rocket Closet is available at 13 locations throughout Colorado and Utah, including Park City, Arapahoe Basin, Vail, and all four Aspen Snowmass mountains (they count those each as an individual location). Two pickups and drop-offs are included in the yearly plans, with additional pickups and drop-offs costing $70 each.
Monthly or yearly memberships are available, with the cheapest option starting at $30/month ($300/year with a 20% discount for the yearly service). The smallest option allows for the storage of a double ski bag and one boot bag, making it perfect for just two people. The two higher options are designed for 2-4 people ($900/year or $90/month) and 4-6 people ($1800/year or $180/month).
Obviously if you’re skiing a ton or live near the resorts you’re planning to visit, this is probably not a great option for you. But, if you live somewhere warm and only manage to go on one or two ski trips a year, Rocket Closet seems like a darn solid option! $300 for a year of storage is a pretty darn good price, even for a just a few object, and that’s before even considering the included pickups and deliveries.
