Just because summer is only endless in the movies doesn’t mean that your outdoor adventures hibernate through the winter. Your road bike may be in storage, but your snowboard is itching to hit the pow pow. But, is your ride ready to haul skis instead of cycles? Convert your hitch bike rack into a full-blown ski and snowboard carrier with the Thule Tram Ski Carrier and make the transition from one season’s sports to the next easier than ever.
Expertly engineered to attach to a number of Thule hitch-mounted and spare tire-mounted bike racks, the Thule Tram Hitch Ski Rack takes you from dirt trails to slopes in a flash. Its plush rubber arms securely grip your gear, holding it safe and steady on the bumpiest roads. And, once you reach base camp, you don’t have to struggle to unload your skis or boards. Thanks to oversized buttons and One-Key™ locks, your Thule 9033 Ski Rack is a breeze to open even with bulky gloves.
Whether you’re shredding the mountains solo or cruising with your snow patrol, the Thule Tram has room to spare. When it’s connected to a 2” bike rack, it holds up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards (4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards on 1.25” racks and spare tire racks). And, your Thule Tram Ski Rack is backed by a Lifetime Warranty.

I put the ski rack on a Thule vertex bike carrier. It fit perfect. We are a family of four. We put two snowboards and two sets of skis and poles on bike rack. It was a great fit. We went on 12 hour road trip and rack held up great. No problems at all. I have nothing bad to say about it. Thx Thule

If you have a bike rack already then this is cheaper than buying a separate ski rack especially if you don't have roof bars to anchor the ski rack. Also much easier to put skis etc on as you don't have to climb on top of the SUV.

Over all this carrier is built well. It carries 4 pairs of ski's with ease. BUT! I bought it because it said it carries 6 pairs with 2" receiver hitch. It does NOT. The ski shop owner and I tried. But do to the plate between toe and heel piece on ski bindings the locking bar does not close. This can easily be corrected by extending the length between the top locking bracket and the bottom retaining pads.
