I always lock up my board, helps me relax and enjoy my beer a little better without constantly trying to keep one eye on where my board is. I picked up the smallest cable bike lock I could find, keep it in my cargo pant pocket and it works great. Is it 100% guarantee??? not a chance, but it's 100X better than nothing

I just bought one of these locks called a ski key. They only way someone can steal you board is if they take the bindings off. Most cable locks with combo can just be cut. They work with the racks some resorts provide. Ski Racks, Snowboard Racks, and Locks | Ski Key Systems You can see if your local mountain has them at this website. Ski Area Locations That Offer Ski Key Locks & Racks

Look around and buy a short bike cable lock. Just need it long enough to loop around the heel cup and around a rack/pole.

If someone REALLY wants your snowboard they'll take off the binding, but it'll stop people from just walking up, grabbing it, and walking back to their car.

98% of the boards i see on my mountain doesn't get locked down, which is very stupid. I can walk up to a Never Summer or a Burton and prop my Lib beside it knowing that their board will get stolen if someone wanted and not mine, even with a cheap lock and a very thin cable.

I know people want to be nice and see the best in others, but let's get real. The world doesn't work that way. If it doesn't get stolen this weekend, maybe it will next week. It's an investment that you should protect.

If the argument is that if thieves really wanted to, they can cut the cable and walk away with the board, yeah that's fair. But with a board that's not locked down on the next rack, thieves will think twice drawing attention to themselves with cable cutters. It's a deterrent, like all anti-theft devices.

Lately I've been locking mine up, but I'm bringin' 2 or 3 boards so it's better than leaving them in my car.

If I don't have one I just find a cable lock that someone else has left there & entangle my board in it, so it appears to be locked up.

I didn't lock my boards up until I started getting ones that a lot of boarders know are valuable (like the Lib Tech Skate Banana). Now, I keep a simple Burton lock that I picked up for $5 at a spring sale handy and rest easy knowing that my board won't be getting nabbed easily. It really is worth it to pick up one of these cheap locks.

EDIT: Here is my exact lock. Highly recommended.

Oh, I get giddy just thinkin' about it.

When I go to the store on my Rocky Mountain Hammer Race I leave it in the hardest gear & wait.......

One of these days, I'm gonna win the lottery.

I will lock up my new board. Nobody would want my beat up snowboard I am still riding. It looks so bad with the top sheet coming off and the condition of the base. The new one is pretty and it's a brand people want. The bindings are even older than the board.

When my beater board was brand new I refused to leave it alone with out a lock. I have never had a board stolen. I used a lock on my boards when they were nice and new.

The base area Guest Services Folks at Keystone told me Volkl skis were getting stolen the most. I would guess Never Summer would be the biggest snowboard target at Keystone due to brand's popularity and resale value.

I've never locked my board and never will. Strategically placing it outside the bar and checking every 30 minutes if its end of the day works just fine for me.
