if the ski area is known for equipment getting stolen. I personally don't use a lock. I usually put it where I can keep an eye over it.

Yup. I like to be able to eat lunch without worrying. A 5 dollar bike lock does just that.

a 5 dollar lock that you can cut in half with scissors. Just bury your damn board in the snow and no one will steal it.

Maybe, but at least I don't have to worry about people who aren't cutting locks.

People don't do that, it attracts too much attention. Sure most board locks are shit and can be easily smashed but a thief isn't going to go for a board thats locked when there are dozens around it that aren't. Even if it's the shiniest board on the rack.

Yes...only takes second. Think of it as protecting your lift ticket, getting ripped off at lunch ruins a whole afternoon.

At the little mom amd pop hills around here, they just grab boards, throw them in a ditch or a bush or put them in another rack and come back for them later. Only takes a few steps/seconds. You probably haven't even got to the drink fridge by the time it's gone.

That's what a lock prevents.

Since I got my new boards I always lock them up. I have never known anyone who has had their shit stolen but I would be devastated if it happened to me.

So many runs so little time.

A little insurance is great peace of mind for me. I never had a board stolen and don't want it to happen. Usually weekdays with the locals I'm not too worried but if I'm inside having a few beers for lunch then it's definitely getting locked up regardless.
