Fresh powder is calling. The only thing standing between you and a great time on the slopes is the question of how you’re going to transport your skis and snowboards. Thule rooftop racks not only keep your valuable cabin space free and clear, but they deliver the superior quality and innovative design that only an industry leader like Thule can provide. Consult the following comparison guide to see the benefits of popular Thule rooftop ski and snowboard racks, and decide which rack best suits your cargo carrying needs.
Thule SnowCat Ski & Snowboard Rack
With fresh powder falling on your favorite resort, you've got to hit the slopes as quickly as you can. Easily secure your equipment up top, and keep your backseat clean and clear, in the cushioned arms of Thule SnowCat Ski Racks. Designed to mount to your existing factory side rails, the SnowCat doesn’t require that you also invest in a set of aftermarket crossbars. Fully adjustable to fit a wide range of vehicle roofs, the SnowCat’s powerful feet grab hold of your side rails with a vice-like grip. Like the rack to follow, it holds up to six pairs of skis or four boards, and also employs — as do all Thule products — One-Key locks to keep would-be thieves from walking off with your equipment.
Thule Universal PullTop Ski & Snowboard Rack
The user-friendly Thule Universal Pull Top Snowboard Rack extends beyond the side of your roof with a telescoping design that brings your gear within arm’s reach. Beyond its ingenious design, the PullTop Rack boasts a generous carrying capacity, with padded arms that open wide. PullTops install tool-free to most factory crossbars, as well as Thule square or round bars.
Thule Snowboard Rack
Simple and straightforward, the Thule Snowboard Rack gets you and your boards to the slopes without cramping your ride's carrying capacity. With a uniquely angled design, Thule’s Snowboard Rack takes up only a modest amount of space and leaves more than half of your roof available. Whether you ride a standard freestyle board or more narrow carving board, it will secure safely to the rack, thanks to adjustable tie-down straps that fit a wide range of snowboard widths. Thule Snowboard Racks mount to both factory crossbars, as well as Thule round or square bars, without any adaptors, and feature heavy-duty locking cores to keep your boards and your rack where they belong.
Thule Tram Hitch Ski Carrier
Designed to quickly and easily attach to numerous Thule hitch-mounted and spare tire-mounted bike racks, Thule Tram Hitch Ski Carriers take you from the bike trail to the ski slope in a matter of minutes. Plush rubber arms and One-Key locks keep your gear secure along the way, and once you’ve reached your snowy destination, your equipment is easy to unload — even with gloves on — thanks to oversized, quick-release buttons. Connect your Tram Ski Carrier to a 2” bike rack to accommodate up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards, or attach it to a 1.25” bike rack or spare tire rack and take along up to four pairs of skis or two snowboards.
So, What’s the Right One?
Picking out the best Thule rack for your next ski trip means the difference between cramped, unhappy passengers and a nice, smooth start to your relaxing retreat. Whether you need to save room for other rooftop cargo or want the ease of loading and unloading your equipment within arm’s reach, Thule has the ski and snowboard rack for you. You just can’t go wrong with the industry-leading quality and design of a Thule roof rack.
