I am going on my first international flight to backpack solo near Vancouver, Canada. I would like to keep my pack as light as possible when I get to the trail head, while keeping a set of clean clothes for later. I think a carry-on that I can access at the end of my hike would be best, but I have no place safe to store this additional bag.

Is there something like a locker available in the Vancouver International Airport? Are there other options?

I plan on doing more trips similar to this one, are storage options common for International Airports around the world?

    Google is your friend: searching "Vancouver airport luggage storage" pointed immediately to cdsbaggage.ca. You'll have to call for prices. Note there is a good chance it'll be expensive. – Nate Eldredge Apr 17 '18 at 15:42

As found by @NateEldredge through a Google search, CDS Ltd. has baggage storage in two locations in Vancouver International Airport (YVR):

  • International Terminal (before Security) Level 2, 05:00 - 01:00 Daily
  • Domestic Terminal (before Security) Level 2, 05:00 - 23:00 Daily

A subsequent Google search for luggage storage in Vancouver returns these businesses:
