Snowboard locks Vail

I'm going to Vail on Tuesday and I wonder if I should lock my board while there? I have been boarding in Switzerland all season so I'm used to just putting it in a rack but I wonder if they steal boards there. If so, do you think I will be able to buy a lock there?

Should absolutely be locking your board when un attended.

I went to Vail once and didn't have problems not locking my board, but if you are worried then go ahead. There are lots of board/ski shops in the vail village, so you shouldn't have any problems finding a lock.

Make sure to take photos of ladies wearing their fur coats! There are usually many of them at Vail!

It the end of the season. Up on the mountain you won't have to worry about locking the board up. But down at the base I would lock up the board if I didn't have a clear view or was going to leave it unattended for a long period of time. The chances of theft are slim but not non-existent. Protect the investment.

Exactly, on the mountain it's not really a worry. At the base of any mountain, your board is fair game for thieves. Even if only one board gets stolen a year, it sucks if it's your board.
