Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (20 Customer Reviews)

HitchSki is a ski and snowboard carrier that clamps onto your Yakima dual-arm, hitch mounted bike rack. The carrier holds up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 snowboards, features adjustable arms and protects your gear with rubber padding and SKS locks.

Box was completely opened upon receipt. Luckily, all the parts were inside. Does not hold 4 snowboards. Holds 2.


Comments
This is supposed to hold two snowboards side by side on each side of the rack, or it can hold 3 pairs of skis on each side, or it can hold 3 skis on one side and 2 snowboards on the other. Do not mix skis and snowboards on one side as the carrier will not close properly.

I have been using it for the second season (I know I'm late With the review ). The hitch fits my bike rack and saves space for the kids in the car. Easy to install and worth the price.

First and foremost, this is my third order from etrailer.com and it is the absolute best online company with which I have dealt...bar none (no pun intended, but I did buy roofbars)!  I have installed a trailer hitch and Malone roofbars on my 2011 Volvo XC90. With the Malone roofbars, I lost a rubber piece....totally my fault. I contacted etrailer and they contacted Malone and Malone sent me a replacement piece direct from the factory (even though it wasn't a part Malone sold separately). Outstanding service from both etrailer and Malone. I haven't been able to post this outstanding customer service work until I bought something else, so I thought I'd be remiss if I didn't take the opportunity here. [Side note on the Malone roofbars and the rubber pieces: I have since Gorilla glued all of them to the respective pieces on the bar and they'll never be lost again.] For this Yakima HitchSki rack, I ordered it at 8:30 AM and it had shipped by 11:38 the same day. I chose this rack for several reasons. First, I have a low garage, so anything on my Toyota Landcruiser's roof would have to come off before driving in and out (I only have a 7 foot garage in my house in Canada, but could drive in my 8 foot garage in Virginia in the Toyota with the roof box).  I want to be able to load up all the ski stuff the night before and leave it in the garage so it doesn't get stolen....couldn't do this on the Toyota because with nothing on the roof, I only have about 3 inches of clearance now.  In the Volvo, I don't quite make the garage clearance either with the roofbox, so the roofbox becomes less of a convenience (but often a necessity). Second, with five kids, each of my cars is packed with people so I need my roof box (didn't buy it from etrailer because I was overseas at the time and hadn't learned of etrailer yet), so skis on the roof doesn't help me space-wise with all the other crap I have to throw up there. Third, every ski day day is a game time decision on whether to to drive the Toyota or the Volvo depending on what other people in the family are doing that day; the ease of just unplugging the bike rack with the skis all mounted, resting it against the wall in the garage all week and then plugging it in and going in either car was the big sell.  Finally, in the off season, I may just be able to leave all the skis in the rack and hang it horizontal from the garage ceiling to keep them all out of the way....not sure, but will certainly try.  My bike rack is one I have had for years [again, pre my days of knowing about etrailer, it's an XSport four bike holder] and it did not measure exactly the 17.25" needed, but it was close enough and secured down just fine. I wrapped the HitchSki with foam insulation to add some rubber and grip inside the bike rack when clapped down (and scratch protection). Now for two big buts...less of a review but more of a consideration for purchasers.  I bought this rack because I have 7 in my family.  The skis are tall and skinny and hard to fit in the car(s), hence my Hitch Ski rack. But skis are just one piece of skiing equipment.  Add helmets, boots, jackets, ski pants, etc. and that's a lot of space.  So, in my Volvo XC90 or Toyota Landcruiser, while they both seat 7 people, it's very tight with two teenagers and two car seats (and one pre-teen...just so you know I'm doing the math right).  If all seven of us go skiing, I still need the roof box for all the other equipment. If we go on a skiing vacation (overnight), I need other luggage too. Thankfully, Friday night and Sunday ski lessons are just for three kids, so the others will probably not always come.  With the back seat down, no problem for all the other stuff.  So, a Thule Transporter Cargo Box in my future?  Stay tuned.  Final, and most important but, I had to return the HitchSki rack because my skis didn't fit. When you have racks on the roof, they are generally 30+ inches apart. For this rack, the distance between the two racks is 17 inches. I could not, for the life of me, get the skis to fit in the racks without going through or over the ski bindings, hence, I was unable to get it closed and secured. I't s product of having so many different ski sizes (from my 4 year old to my 48 year old self). I was disappointed in myself that I didn't forecast this problem as I over thought everything else.

Easy install.


Comments
It’s fine. I have only used it twice. A suggestion would be to make the part that goes into the hitch receiver longer by 4 inches. Without it the back door of the Jeep Wrangler will not open fully. The spare tire hits. I bought a hitch extender and that did the trick. If your rack was longer the receiver would not be needed.

Got the rack on Saturday, but one of the lower bars was defective. I called customer service on Sunday and Monday evening I had the replacement bar in my house. Amazing customer service. Customer reps are very courteous and accommodating. I just can't stop praising them. The product feels and looks like a very good quality. I'll be using it for the first time in a few days. If you don't see follow up review, then the product is worth every penny.

Works great. Gets easier to install skis after use a few times. The rubber is pretty firm. This combined with a new Thule swingarm style hitch mount carrier makes ski loading, carrying, and security a breeze.

Ask the Experts about this Yakima Ski and Snowboard Racks

  • Fit of Yakima Y02418 HitchSki Ski/Snowboard Carrier on Rola TX-104 59401 Bike Carrier
    The snowboards can indeed be stacked atop each other so that there's two boards stowed on each side for a total of 4, no need to stow them side-by-side (depending on their width, they'd likely not fit side-by-side). The Yakima # Y02418 HitchSki will be compatible with the Rola # 59401 TX-104 bike rack, but you will need to loosen the bolt holding the rear most cradle in place and move the cradle slightly, but that's easily done.

  • Hitch Mounted Snowboard and Bike Rack Solution for 2021 Tesla Model Y
    The solution that is the closest to what you mentioned would be the Yakima Hitchski part # Y02418 which is a board carrier that can carry up to 2 boards that is designed to attach to hanging bike racks like the Yakima Ridgeback part # Y02458. There is not a 4-bike platform rack that can carry snowboards as well. If you were in need of a hitch for your 2021 Tesla Model Y the Draw Tite hitch part # DT58MR is a fit and would be a great option.

    The Yakima HitchSki Snowboard and Ski Carrier # Y02418 that you referenced is just an adapter that will install on a Yakima hanging bike rack to allow it to carry skis/snowboards. You would first need a bike rack made by Yakima to use this. For a bike rack that will clear the back of your spare and will work with the # Y02418 you would want the Yakima RidgeBack part # Y02458. This has 11-1/2 inches from the center of the hitch pin to the back of the mast of the rack so it has plenty...

  • Fit of the Yakima HitchSki on a Thule Bike Rack
    The Yakima HitchSki, part # Y02418 is designed to work best with the straight arm Yakima carriers. Its two central bars are about 24 inches apart, and being straight may not sit correctly on the raised curve of the Thule racks. Thule does make the Tram, part # TH9033 that is designed to be compatible with most Thule four bike racks, and will have a much better fit for your rack.

However, there is a possibility that part # Y02418 will work on your Rak n Lok Hitch Mounted Bike Rack.
