My Review of Yakima Big Powderhound Ski Mount - 6 pair

Originally submitted at REI

Carry up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards on your Yakima® roof rack with this nicely designed, easy-to-use Big Powderhound mount.

Whistles at the top of my Xterra

Gift: No

Pros: Stable

Cons: Whistles, Hard to Install or Use

So we've had this rack for a few months, including a ride for about 9 hours. It, unfortunately, whistles at the top of our Xterra at highway speeds.

Our Thule, which was on top of our Honda CRV, didn't whistle at all, but unfortunately can't be mounted on top of the Xterra. We're thinking about giving the FatCat 6 a try, but it's quite a bit more expensive.

It's not bad if you don't mind the noise at high speeds.
