Local Police are reminding locals and visitors to chain their equipment.

Over the weekend police were made aware of a number of incidents where skis and boards were stolen from racks in the Snow resorts.

Police say often people steal ski gear just because it is readily available.

They say chaining snow equipment at any time when it is not in use i.e. on the snow fields, at accommodation, attached to a vehicle or anywhere else, is a simple and effective measure people can take to help ensure equipment isn’t taken by someone else.

They also ask locals and visitors to assist others by keeping an eye out for people acting suspiciously.

Locking ski equipment to a secure object (i.e. ski rack) deters the ‘would be’ criminal from taking gear.

They add, Ski Locks are light weight, inexpensive and easily fit in a pocket while equipment is in use.
