WARNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

just got back from an ultimate trip to split revelstoke/kicking horse in one week

the trip was great

 

in KHMR we stayed in the glacier lodge: everything locked, nothing is permitted to be brought into the rooms..

 

left my helmet with gogles in the locker room: somebody had stollen my gogles;  multiple tries to get the manager had failed

 

my advise:  store everything i nth  eroom, despite of  rules!!!!!

IMO, if they won't let you bring it in the room, then they should provide you with a locker and a lock.  I'd never ever stay again in a place like that.  And I'd tell them at the top of my lungs.

You can't even bring goggles and helmets into the room to dry out?  That's ridiculous.  I know a lot of places won't let you bring skis and poles into the room anymore, but I've never heard any place restricting your clothing items before.

I would have taken the cost of goggles off the room payment. WTF kind of a ski area property is that?

The OP hasn't provided any details about the locker room.  Maybe he was provided a lock and locker as is normally the case and just forgot his helmet in the locker room after he put his skis away? 

 

I have been to a resort hotel where skis had to be left in a secure room with no lockers but no one was expected to leave helmets and goggles in there.  That made me wonder if my skis would be there each morning.

 

I think the OP needs to provide more details before everyone jumps to conclusions.  Were lockers provided?  Were the helmet and goggles accidently forgotten in the locker room?  Was it mandatory to leave all ski equipment in this locker room?

We were ther a few years ago and my friend accidentally left her mittens in the bathroom. When she returned about 10 minutes later, they were gone.  This seems quite common there.

Stealing is not cool but neither is blaming a resort or hotel for someone's own mistakes and/or the actions of people who obviously have no respect for other peoples property.  The OP has not responded so we still don't know what the circumstances are regarding the theft of their goggles.

I think the OP misunderstood the rules. I never heard of a place that does not allow the helmet and goggles to be brought to the room.

 

What next? I cannot bring my ski gloves to the room?

Stayed at the Glacier before. What they do not want you to do is to take skis and poles up to the rooms. They also request you not walk up to your room in ski boots. It's just to prevent damage to the rooms.

 

Obviously, you can take your glove and helmet! I also took my ski boots up every day to dry out.

The place my wife and I stayed at back in February didn't even want us to take our boots in to the room.  Their was no way in hell I was leaving my boots in a cold storage closet outside the condo over night.  I never would have been able to get them on in the morning and feet would have been cold all day.  The skis and poles thought I completely understood.

i pretty much do that everywhere I go. Who the hell cares what the rules are?  Rules are for people who can't think.  They're my skis--I'll take them where I want.  Besides, how else am I gonna wax them??

Right on! And do they expect us to shower without our helmets on? That's dangerous.

 

I remember getting caught carrying in our boards by the owner of the place we were staying near Hunter. This was in violation of posted rules. When he saw a carving board and a PSIA sticker on my freeride board, everything was OK, he started talking about a carving clinic he had recently attended, or perhaps taught.  :)
