Default Locking Up at whistler

Coming from Perth Aust and NZ resorts, will it be necessary to lock my board at Whistler Blackcomb? Its so chill in NZ, never locked my board, but there's always a first time to start.

I got to know the people in the front office at the place I have a season pass. I've even gone out and picked them up food/soda from time to time as they can't leave their area.

A few times last year I had forgot to bring my lock or left it in my car which was parked in the far back corner of the lot. If I had to go take a shit or get something to drink/eat all I had to do was walk into the office and ask them to look over my board for a few minutes. They were more than happy to put it behind the counter for me.

A couple minutes of personal time with the staff can go a long ways if you plan on spending most of your winter there anyways.

I think that most snowboard locks are overpriced junk, and I've read a few posts where the owner forgot the combo and just ripped it off by breaking the plastic lock body. I use a 5' bicycle cable lock: 3/16" plastic coated SS cable, and a metal, 4 digit tumbler combo lock. It doesn't weigh much, coils up in my backpack, and is long enough to lock two boards if they are racked bindings facing each other. Deterrent value alone makes it worth carrying.

Ski Racks, Snowboard Racks, and Locks | Ski Key Systems

If the resort you are going to has this system, it's an alternative. I always lock up my board and I see lots of people at my local hill do the same too. But, at the same time I see lots of people leaving their gear out.

I will definitely be bringing my keys with me to my trip to Whistler. I'm so excited about Whistler but at the same time scared that the mountain will ruin me for life....

Working on it, one is an adult one is underage, so his ID won't be released. I'm going out of town today for a week, I'll have a copy of the police report when I get back. Plan on buying the guys that caught him a bar tab too.

Yet another reason to thank our Vets. That is so awesome.

So those jokers had over five stolen boards and stolen skis? Welcome to your felony...

Sick that you got your stuff back! Let us know what happens with those bozos...I know I'd be interested.

Had a similar incident a few years ago. My brand new Rome got jacked at Whiteface in Lake Placed. Reported it to the mountain and local PD - 6 months later they caught the guy red handed moving the boards out of a remote shack on the Whiteface property. Got my board back, bindings and all.

I know that most mountains nowadays have set up extensive surveillance systems and make it very apparent that they are there and watching. I work at a mountain and know that thefts have gone down a significant amount. I still lock my board though. I use the thin cable lock but its my opinion that thieves aren't gonna bother with it when there's a dozen other boards to choose from.
