Ski Gear Stolen at Seven Springs

This is an excerpt of the police blotter and article by City Editor Rick Kazmer in the Daily American, Somerset PA, January 13, 2001.

On January 5 state police received 41 complaints of stolen skis and snowboards taken from people who were at Seven Springs Mountain Resort between December 4 and January 4, 2011. Since the average value of this equipment is easily $500 this amounts to possibly over $20,000 of theft.

Anna Weltz, Seven Springs Spokeswoman said “This is average. It’s sad but true.” One thing to point out is that none of the equipment was taken from storage areas.  This is ski gear left leaning up against a wall or table. There is unlimited ski check for $2.00 where the equipment is secured in a guarded room.  All the resorts in the Laurel Highlands offer racks to lock up equipment when you are not using it.

Lesson Learned, would you leave your purse or wallet with $500 in it on a picnic table in a public venue? Don’t do the same with your equipment.  Check online sites like Craigs List and E Bay to see if you can find your gear as most of the gear is sold there. You might be able to buy it back at about 1/3 of its value and it you have a serial number bust these creeps. Don’t be a victim of theft, use ski check or lock your gear if it is not on your feet. Ski YAAA.
