Editor's Notes

February 21, 2019:

Ski and snowboard car racks can come in a range of shapes, sizes and styles, but any model worth considering should meet a few key criteria. Security is important, since winter equipment can be expensive and there are times you'll want to leave it unattended atop your roof. Ergonomic design is also crucial, since the less time you have to spend loading and unloading your gear, the more time you have to spend on the mountain. And durability is a factor, since carriers can take a beating out in the wind and weather. With those markers in mind, we combed through almost two dozens options, ultimately arriving at these top ten. Overall, we think the SportRack Groomer Deluxe is best for most people, since it seems well-made, is easy to use, and comes in at a price that makes it accessible even to once-or-twice-a-season slope-goers.
