Skis stolen in Vail but women rides

VAIL, Colorado ” Less than 10 minutes after a woman laid her skis down near the base of the Vista Bahn gondola in Vail, Colorado and stuck her poles in the snow, somebody had taken off with them.

She was helping a friend read a trail map at the time, she told police, and was within a short distance of the skis. She also told police that the area was crowded and didn’t notice anyone walking off with her gear.

She told police she thought somebody took the skis by accident.

Vail Resorts Security looked at security tape from that time period and the cameras weren’t pointed in that direction. Whoever took the skis hasn’t been caught, but the woman’s skis are registered with Vail police in case they do turn up in the future.

She was outfitted for the rest of the day with a free set of skis.
