Our take on the Thule 5401 Snowcat Ski Carrier

by Chris Egner

Keep your snow skis and snowboards safely in place with Thule's 5401 Snowcat carrier. You can transport up to six pairs of skis, four snowboards, or any combination of skis and boards that'll make the whole family happy on the slopes.

This easy-to-install carrier fits right on top of your vehicle's roof-mounted side rails — no need for a separate load carrier. Simply adjust the Snowcat to match the width of your vehicle.

Thule's ingenious locking system lets you secure all of your Thule accessories with a single key, so you can breathe easy when you leave your snow gear out in the open. And their All Thule equipment passes tough European safety standards for car racks.
