Yesturday I was guarding over my skis and my brothers on a deck just above where the ski racks were and I got thinking. Ski hills should put one or two hidden cameras overtop of the ski racks. If this is done someone could go back to the hill and tell management that at such and such time their skis were stolen. Hopefully then they could go through the footage from that day and catch a glimpse of the person who stole their skis and possibly identify the man or post his mugshot to prevent him from coming back to the hill ever again.
I know it's not completely water-tight because the robbers may have helmets and goggles on, but at least it may help catch 1 or 2 individuals who weren't as smart.
my mouatnin used to have racks that were compatible with a lock you can buy at a store for like 2 bucks but they got ride of that adn there just normal aluminum/wood racks so i just split my skis and put them on differnt racks, no one is gonna steal just one ski
long story short he overshot. tried to finger a girl wearing a skirt in the movies, but overshot and got the pooper. then proceeded to wipe the poopy finger on the friend next to him.
wow...splitin the skis up sounds like a really good idea!
my hill has cameras watchin over the ski racks, the only problem with it is people who make one sweep of the place and never come back to the hill. plus you could be inside for like half an hour and your skis could be in a different state by the time you realise they are stolen. the only way to not get them stolen is a ski lock (yes they can be cut but someone will see them and say something) or just carrying in the lodge with you. my lodge says no skis or equipment inside but its yet to stop me from keepin them at my side. hopefully you have a staff at your hill committed to stoppin theft. i kno at Perfects in indiana i've seen a worker watch a guy in regular clothes for like an hour cuz he was suspicious of him stealing.
alot of mountains already have cameras, mine does (snowbird) and they're not hidden either, they have like signs posted that say video surveillance (sp i know) is in the area, to try and prevent it before it happens. plus if you have way nice skis, you can take a little extra time and place them in two places apart, cuz no one will want to steal 1 ski
if you love snowbird or alta then then message me and join the cult
get shitty poles. if u throw ur shitty poles with ur skis and just leave em out right infront of the lodge ont eh ground noone will steal em. or wright the words cock mobster on both ur skis. noone wants a cockmobster ski
you going to pay for the cameras? Then pay ppl to watch the cameras? Then pay ppl to do an investigation? Plus at a tourist place thousands of ppl go through everyday, you try identifing somebody wearing ski clothes.

yea i just take my shit in at perfect they dont care... i dont really see the point why you cant take it in but i know if they say its because of the carpet my uncle puts in the carpet there for them for mass cheap so i can just tel them that
you should be able to, but that doesnt mean thats how it will happen. The ski key system works the best ( http://www.skikey.com/ski-locks.htm ) Unlike the retractable locks these can be cut my a pair of sissors(yes thats right sissors is all it takes) or wire cutters because its locked into the rack itself. There only about 20 bucks and I have yet to visit a mountian or hill that doesnt have at least 1 ski key rack there

yeah but you do have to worry whether or not you want to. Also where are you getting these percents from, you think a camera is really going to stop people. If your wearing a skiing outfit they would never ever be able to locate you. You think they can remember every person who put down what board? At some resorts there are hundreds of boards or skis lined up. Just bring them everywhere you go, period.
