Skis and snowboards continue to disappear in Park City
March 27, 2012
The Park City Police Department last week received another series of complaints about ski or snowboard thefts, continuing a string of cases that has stretched since early February.
At least six cases were reported last week, and they were not limited to the two mountain resorts inside the Park City limits, police logs showed.
The cases last week included:
Cases on Lowell Avenue typically involve skiers or snowboarders at Park City Mountain Resort while reports on streets like Deer Valley Drive and Royal Street generally are associated with Deer Valley Resort.
The police and the resorts recommend that people use ski lockers or valets as a way to protect their equipment. The police, meanwhile, offer a ski-registration program that is meant to discourage thieves.
There have been at least 16 cases reported to the Police Department since early February. The police continue to investigate the thefts, including monitoring pawn shop and online listings for the stolen skis and snowboards.
