Put on boots in the room. Walk 100 feet across the parking lot. Would be less, but we were in the very last cabin.
Get on the bus. Sit and relax. Get off the bus the same place as the shuttle from the parking lot. Walk to the lifts, sit on a bench, do a final tighten and adjust. Nothing to carry. Easy.
I don't like to boot up at the car. I have trouble doing it without putting a foot down and getting my sock wet.
The alternative when I drive is to carry my boots in a bootbag and boot-up in-doors. I don't dislike doing that, but when there is a bus right outside the motel, that is even better.
