Rack it Up with the Best Snowboard and Ski Racks
FatCat Evo mounts tool-free to virtually any roof rack. The aerodynamic design delivers a quiet ride and the large button allow for smooth access while wearing gloves or mitts. It features integrated SKS (same key system) locks for added security. Looking to carry more? Consider the FatCat 6 Evo($279), which can accommodate up to six pairs of powder skis or four snowboards.
The HitchSki fits most four- and five-bike, mast-style hitch racks and will carry up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards. The rig comes with Yakima’s same SKS locking mechanism to secure your gear to the rack. Optional locking options are available to secure to entire rig to your car.
With 10 rooftop cargo boxes — ranging from $379-$779 — Yakima has the appropriate box to accommodate your gear needs. The smallest box, the RocketBox Pro 11 ($379), will hold up to 210 cm skis; the largest box, the SkyBox 21 Carbonite ($600), will hold up to 215 cm skis (and with 21 cubic feet of storage space, a whole lot more). All feature the universal roof rack fit.
