I searched forum on this topic and most of what I found was pretty old, so I am not sure if still accurate, especially post Vail acquisition. We booked our lodging at the Chateau Apre. Looks perfect for hard core skiers looking for basic clean lodging within walking distance to Park City base. It would appear to be a 5 to 10 min walk to lifts. What, if any, storage options either for the day and / or overnight exist at the Park City base near the Payday lift for at least shoes and boot bag and possibly skis as well? I think the distance is walk-able in my ski boots, but I certainly would prefer not to do so. Same with skis, certainly can carry them back and forth if needed, but would prefer not to do so.
