When it's all said and done, you're left with a puddle of murky water in your ride. Avoid all of these hassles by carrying your ski gear in one of these lockable racks next time you head to the mountains.

Load your car full of friends and drive into the eye of the storm with this rack, capable of holding up to six pairs of powder skis or four snowboards. Yakima's DoubleJoint hinge system accommodates fatter boards and skis that other racks struggle with. This Evo version is an update to the original Fat Cat, with a sleek black design, slightly more space for wider boards and skis, and an even lower profile for better aerodynamics.

No crossbars? No worries. This rack mounts to your side rails, so there's no need to purchase crossbars. The angle of the rack adjusts, too, to accommodate bigger bindings. It even has separate openings on both sides of the car, because if you drove, your passengers should at least do their own loading and unloading.

Quieter than racks with a wall-like profile, yet much more affordable than the highly aerodynamic options, this rack will transport your ski and snowboard equipment safely to the mountains. After all, who cares more about their gear than a company that started (and is still based) in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains?

Load up two boards in this rack and leave space for a car-top carrier to lug your other gear. Designed with space-saving in mind, this rack mounts off-center, and it takes up way less space than most other options, so you'll be able to lug everything you need for a full month of powder-searching.

Have trouble hoisting skis on your rooftop? Already have a spare- or hitch-mounted bike rack? Transform your summer rack into a ski carrier by adding the Thule Tram.

Not only does this rack look sleek enough to complement your German sports car, but it also has a low-profile design that improves fuel efficiency and reduces wind noise. Don't worry if you have bigger bindings — the company's integrated SmartLift raises the rack to increase roof clearance, then tucks back away when not in use.
