The Thule Hitch Ski Carrier converts most Thule trailer hitch bike racks into a ski rack that fits up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards. It converts Trailblazer, Hitching Post, Expressway, Rak-N-Loc, and Spare Me bike racks. Thule makes loading the Hitch Ski Carrier easy by included a rubber strap that holds the skis while you tighten the locking arm. Thule redesigned the Hitch Ski Carrier to accommodate fatter skis. The Hitch Ski Carrier locks with the same cylinders as your bike carrier, so you can just swap them when you convert the rack.

Install and use problems

    Not a huge fan of this ... but not many other options out there for my Jeep Wrangler. Paired with the simple Thule bike rake and the install was a pain b/c the instructions aren't that clear. Only holds 6 skis total. The locks on the end keep on getting stuck so I may return it based on all the trouble.

    Mount it up

      The carrier is easier to assemble than IKEA furniture. I'm using the Hitch Ski Carrier with the Thule Spare Me Spare Tire Mount on a 1998 Jeep Wrangler. The ski carrier fits snugly on the Mount but is slightly off center. It's not going anywhere but if it fit a bit more flush I'd like it even better.

      I have a 99 wrangler and was trying to find a ski rack for it. I planned on buying the spare me bike rack for the back tire and then doing the same thing you did in buying the hitch ski carrier. I was wondering how well it went together. you said it was a little off center. Does that affect the skis at all? Also have you found anything different that has been more useful?

      Casey, this setup is still working great after several years on the Jeep. I don't have a tow package so this is by far the best option. The off-center issue is a non-issue. Skis are super stable in this setup.
