It only takes once for you to start using one. I haven't had one stolen but a number of friends have.
I've known boards to be stolen at Loveland, Copper, Eldora, Buttermilk, and Winter Park. Guests and instructors equipment. Even when they've only had their backs turned for less than two minutes. They aren't likely to get stolen up the mountain but down at a base area - it can happen. Not good when you need your snowboard to teach with.
I know of people who have recovered their equipment by watching eBay and Craigslist.
Lock it through the binding. It takes time to pull out a screw driver and take a binding off. Looks rather suspicious too.
