Be careful about road salt
I've used this rack a few times over the past winter. The rack installed easily and securely transported 5 pairs of skis and poles. However, the skis get covered in road salt and grime, which wreaks havoc on your edges to the point where I had to have my skis sharpened. I definitely recommend but be sure to immediately wipe down your skis after removing them from the rack, otherwise you will have rusty edges.
