On Black Friday, while all the shoppers were in the stores, I was up at the mountain. I just bought two new snowboards for this winter, and brought both of them with me to test them out on my first day up to timberline this season. When I left the car at 9:45, I locked my spare board to the Yakima ski rack on top of the car, and even double checked to make sure it was locked. When I arrived back at the car at 3:30, I looked at the ski rack, my new Artec snowboard was missing, and the ski rack was still locked! The board was a 2010 Artec Gabe Taylor 163cm wide with Burton Freestyle bindings. The car was parked at Timberline Lodge, in the lower parking lot, around many other cars, yet the crook was not deterred.
Please air this story... I am trying to bring awareness to this topic, as many people have had things stolen from the parking lot at timberline. A gentleman emailed me a site: http://www.whatsbeenstolen.com/ that he created to help other people get their stolen stuff back.
