I'll bet most of the thieves just move it to a rack around the corner or throw it behind a snowbank (or take it to board check) 10 seconds later and you'll never find it or them.
I can't count the number of times I've checked out a board leaning against the wall because it was a newer model than mine or had different graphics (I don't touch) and nobody came racing out of the lodge to confront me. Or lit a smoke, watched someone place their board against the wall and then watched them work their way thru the lodge to get their chili cheese fries. I usually can finish my smoke before they're in sight of their board again. Hell, takes me enough time to spot my board thru the windows when I first sit down.
