Dakine Cool Lock (Fall 2007) Moosejaw | North Face | Patagonia | Arcteryx

I haven't ridden with it yet, but it's not too big so I'm sure you wouldn't mind it in your pocket.

The other side.

I'm tempted to buy one, as the local shop here has everything 50% off...was so tempted to buy a Burton Love (215), K2 Darkstar ($235) or Gnu CHB MTX ($150).

But alas, I was looking for sub-200 and no tax...=/

But next time I go to the mountain, I'm bringing my bike lock. Should work just as well..

Lightbulb Thieves have to be pretty gutsy to stand there with cutters!...

There are locks out there that don't work well and locks that do work well. The downside to having a SkiKey is, like you said, if no racks exist at a ski resort to accommodate these types of locks. But retractable locks such as an RC lockhave quite a thick cable and are in no way less effective than SkiKey locks. They are way more versatile, intimidating, not only for skis, snowboards, but perhaps mountain bikes, bikes and anything else needing temporary lock-up where there are large crowds of people or large amounts of stuff being locked up. Why would anyone want to carry around a small key and possibly lose it, when all you need with a retractor lock is a 3-digit combo in your memory which i think most people are capable of doing.

No cables, no cutting, no worries.

The only downside is that if the resort you're boarding at doesnt have the accompanying rack, you're SOL. Fortunately the racks are pretty popular.

100000x better than a cable lock.

well all the slopes that i go to, the board racks are right in front of the lodge, where everone stands, and i think it would be pretty obvious if someone was trying to cut a lock.

i use this:

http://www.skikey.com/images/locks_retail_pkg.jpg

only downside is, ive been to some places that dont have the racks compatible for boards.

as for the steel braided cable locks, one quick snip with some good side cutters and your board is gone.
