Use a Ski Key. I think most resorts have the racks which accomodate the lock. It's small and very effective.

sometimes we need to be more subtle when we lock or store our boards. This should help too.

Awesome thread.

One thing to note is that if you lock up your stuff, it probably means it worth something, also making it a target.

I usually always threw my junk somewhere and nothing happened. But then again, it was never anything desirable and I actually looked like a ragboy clothes wise so I think noone ever noticed me.

If you come to the mountain all blinged out with the newest 10/11 gear, you might be more of a target anyhow.

I always use a lock at the resort, but I also always keep my board in sight. You have to realize that all you're doing with a lock is hopefully making a thief look for an easier target. The reason I use a lock is so someone can't just grab my board and go. Since I have my board in sight, I'm hopefully going to see them trying to cut the lock or remove the binding and hopefully that'll give me time to get out there and knock his ass out. Again, the key word here is "hopefully". In my mind, a lock is cheap and worth the insurance it provides.

locks, especially thin cable snowboard locks are a deterrent, not a guarantee. a would be thief is going to scope out an unlocked board before a locked one. my local resorts have a free snowboard check, i always use that.

your house burglar alarm goes off, the police arrive in much more than one minute, in the meantime you now no longer have a brand new 60" plasma ($500 worth of meth right there)

I used to have one of the basic Burton locks with the three digit wheels. I locked my friend's board along with mine while we grabbed lunch and the combination wouldn't work when we got back. I noticed the plastic casing was a little bent so I pulled it apart a little further and saw that one of the wheels wasn't sitting correctly. Long story short I just bend the thing off and solved the riddle by moving one of the wheels one digit form where it was supposed to be.
Gave me a scare so I stopped using locks (my board was also old), but now that I have new gear I'll invest in something better.
