After saving up for your holiday , your skis and your clothes, you don't want to have your skis stolen while enjoying a coffee.
It is annoying enough that people stomp over your skis in a life line, I hate that. The chances of having your new skis nicked while stashed in a rack, could be slim, but that's not the point.
If you park your skis next to more expensive skis, in the hope that the thieves will steal the more expensive ones, that is not always the case. The thieves may choose the less costly ones as it is less obvious. Since bindings are so easy to adjust, it#s not hard for thieves to ski off in a new pair of skis.
I'm wondering when someone will invent a mini GPS for skis. When you've skied on well designed or custom made skis, it is such a wonderful experience, you understand why prole want to steal them.
Here are some ideas for reducing the chances of ski and pole theft while you are enjoying lunch inside a cozy mountain side Café;
• KRYPTO GRIP locks by KRYPTONITE Some say that the combination types are easy to break into, whereas these have keys.
• Put skis in the rack next to a pair of brand new Skis
• Separate your skis with a friend
• Write your name or email address on the skis or use an engraving pen. Write in Chinese!
• Paint your skis so that they look less lovely to would be thieves.
• Record the serial numbers and brand of your skis and photograph them and your poles
• Sew a cloth name label into the loops of the ski poles. Decorate your poles with some coloured insulating or holographic wrapping sticky tape
• Don't take them off, keep skiing.
