A day or a weekend on the slopes can be expensive enough without having to pay a lot just to get your gear there. And there's no reason to spend more than necessary, especially when you get so much for your money with Yakima PowderHound Roof Ski and Snowboard Racks. These high capacity carriers come in versions that can haul up to 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards, or up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards, so you can bring along plenty of friends to join in the fun (and chip in for gas).
No matter what kind of crossbars you have on your roof rack, round, square, factory, or aero, the PowderHound's universal mounts will provide a secure attachment. Once installed, you'll find these carriers easy to open thanks to oversize buttons that are easy to operate even with heavy ski gloves. The soft rubber padding will provide a secure hold for your snow gear without damaging the finish, and the carriers automatically adjust to variable heights to accommodate different thickness ski and snowboards.
If there's not enough clearance between the carriers and your roof for snowboards or tall bindings, don't risk damaging your vehicle or equipment. The included ski lift can be installed between the carrier and crossbar mount at one end to provide the necessary room. Yakima SKS (Same Key System) lock cores and keys are included to lock the ends of the carriers to prevent theft of your skis and boards. In doing so, the carriers are also locked to the roof rack crossbars.
PowderHound Roof Ski and Snowboard Racks come with comprehensive, illustrated instructions and they're backed by a limited lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.
