Thule SnowCat Ski & Snowboard Rack Customer Reviews
24 Customer Reviews
When stormy winter weather heaps fresh powder on your favorite resort’s slopes, you’ve got to get to the mountain. It’s okay to call in sick at work, but it’s not okay to stuff your skis and snowboards into your back seat. Let them ride up top where they belong, cradled in the cushioned arms of the Thule SnowCat Ski & Snowboard Rack. It holds up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards.
Thule designed the SnowCat specifically to mount onto factory side rails, so you don’t need to buy a full set of crossbars just to carry your snow gear. The powerful feet grab hold of your roof’s side rails with a vice-like grip, and the SnowCat is adjustable to work with a wide range of roofs.
Plus, you don’t have to worry about ski thieves walking off with your equipment while you’re in the lodge sipping hot coco and chatting with snow bunnies. Each arm of your SnowCat Ski & Snowboard Rack stays secure using the included Thule One Key locks. Best of all, Thule backs your SnowCat rack with a Lifetime Warranty.

it's a bit of a high profile and you do notice some drop in MPG when going fast (above 70mph) but noise level is not as bad as I would have expected. took me about 45 minutes to install, and it fits Subaru Crosstrek without problem. overall I am happy that I didn't have to spend extra money buying crossbars.. I just wish that the tool that came with it to install it was much longer to make it easier to tighten.

I have a 2004 Jeep Liberty. I don't haul bikes or anything else, so I wanted something just for the snowboards without having to buy the crossbars separately. My only complaint, if you want to call it that were the installation instructions. It's just pictures. Like most other reviewers, it took me few minutes to figure out how to get the first one installed. Once figured out, it's a snap. They worked perfectly. I would definitely recommend them.

Crossbars installed on our Lexus would be exorbitant. This is a cost-effective, though not cheap, solution. Two 4-hour away ski trips already with no issues. My only complaint so far is that the directions were pictures only. It was a bit confusing without words.

Instructions were pretty simple, installation was easy. A bit time consuming. Everything you need comes in the box, allen wrench and all. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to save money.

I bought this to install on my wife's Murano for a cross country trip and it worked very well. I have an arm in a sling from a recent surgery and was able to install it with ease. One knock would be the size. It seems much taller than other ski racks I have seen. I was a bit unnerved when pulling into a low ceiling parking garage. This may not be an issue for most. All in all I most certainly recommend this product.
