Wel I think it'll be ok with momma's skis upside down on one side, and then a kids board on the other.

I've never put skis and boards on mine but having used it for years I don't foresee any issue. Just always make sure with your boards that one binding is in front of the front most rack. Does that make sense.

I have had more then one board slide back on me and pull over to readjust them. With the binding in front this keeps the board from sliding back to much.

Mine are super close together to hold my boys little board, I think the bars are literally right outside of my bindings, it won't be able to move. I'm not excited about how much the nose is probably gonna be flapping. I think I migh make mom do a test drive while I drive next to her in the momvan and scope it out.

I am thinking of maybe going with one of these for this season:

Thule Force Alpine 623 - Thule

Any thoughts?

It looks nice, I just couldn't do a box because I wouldn't be able to get into it on top of the Yukon, lol. The 'cat seems to be really well made though, and I've heard nothing but good things about the brand.

Not all cars are rated for boxes so make sure you look into this.
Not only the weight and the box and gear in it, but the force that the drag puts on the roof rack. So make sure your car is rated for a box.
I know mine is NOT, so a 4 board rack system is what I use

aiidoneus nice cars btw !!!!

Deacon you have a 4 board system or "2" 2 board holders. In you pic on FB it looks like the later. If so you might consider hitting up a junk yard or order an extra cross bar and just throw it up there then you can mount the 2nd holder wider to accommodate your board and the shorter one for the kids boards.

Edit: I think your good aiidoneus found this on the site fits your car. Thule Pulse Cargo Box



why do sites block right click stupid fucks, just view source code and borrow their image anyway....idiots....

My only issue with the snowcat is the boards are exposed, and I am a giant baby with boards. Always worried salt and dirt will be an issue.
