Forecasts for colder weather and mountain snowfall means the 2013-2014 ski season is near; so are ski and snowboard thieves.
In the Wasatch Mountains resort community of Park City, police are urging outdoor winter sports enthusiasts to help deal with thefts by registering their gear.
This marks the sixth year for the ski and snowboard registration program in Park City, and PCPD Capt. Phil Kirk says it has been very successful. Only one incident of registered gear being stolen has been reported since the program was launched in 2006.
