My advice to anyone going to Northstar is to LOCK UP YOUR SKIS and poles, especially if they are a good pair. I had a good pair of Dynastar skis "switched" along with a good pair of graphite poles. The skis were the same model, color and size as mine, with the exception of the binding. Surprisingly, the bindings if the skis switched with mine fit my boots. I posted the "switch" on Craigslist hoping to get a response. I did not. Lo and behold, others have posted the same thing on Craigslist. Switched skis, very similar if not the same, and the bindings fit the boots of the person who had the switch made on them. I got the same story from Northstar's security that others have: "it happens all the time". I ski other resorts at Tahoe, and never hear of this happening “all the time”--only at Northstar. Their security office needs to take these reports more seriously. Another option is to just stop skiing there or lock your equipment up. I sure will if I go again.
