Default Anyone Actually Lock Up Their Snowboards?

Just curious about how many of you here actually lock up your snowboard outside the chalet when you go in for a break or what not...

hell yes.. but mostly on holidays when resorts are so crowded or when my kids are with me, just one less thing to worry about. Had a few close calls already

Every time. It only takes a few seconds to lock up.

Chalet!

I usually trust it if im at a bigger mountain or "resort." I've never had problems at Beaver Creek or Vail. When Im on the east coast at smaller shitty hills near my house, however, i usually either try to hide my board or keep it on me or within sight at all times, because 1, i dont have a lock and 2, boards get stolen left and right at small mountains. i know it seems counterintuitive, but that's my experience. I think i might get a lock this year though for the times i go to the small mountain near my house (Catamount/Butternut)

i'll either kick the ski check a little nugget of chronic to take mine or i'll leave it outside sitting in the snow so i can watch it from inside - hoping some idiot will try and steal it so i can catch them and beat the fucking shit out of them

Those of you that lock your boards up- what type of lock are you using? Something like the Dakine lock?

Every time! I can't afford to have any gear stolen.

Why not. After my friends $500 flow got jacked I always do. I write down my serial number somewhere too, in case it does get stolen and I see someone with it. Had that happen to a friend too.

I lock mine every time i think it'll be out of my sight. I bought a little bike lock from walmart for $5, It seems better put together than one of those plastic snowboard locks. Just don't forget to get the code off the package before throwing it away like I did.
