Snowpack Extender

The Thule Snowpack Extender lets you haul enough skis and boards for a proper party shred. This extendable roof rack fits up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards, holding them securely on your car with soft rubber arms that won't scratch your sticks. The oversized buttons are easy to operate with gloves on so you don't have to expose your fingers to the brutal winter chill and the One-Key system locks the skis to the rack and the rack to the car.

Great customer service and product!

I've used it several times
True to size

5 stars for Backcountry customer service (Laurel). 4 stars for the Thule holder, the key is hard to get into lock, sprayed it with WD-40 for easier insertion. The top latch could hold in place at a higher angle to get equipment in easier. When sliding boards in, it catches on rubber and the tray slides in so basically you have to hold tray when placing boards to prevent the tray from sliding. Otherwise, works well and surprisingly quiet for the more upright design. Tray slides out easily on our SUV, oversized handles a plus when wearing gloves. We were able to fit 3 snowboards and one set of skis (2 snowboards 152cm stacked, one 145cm adjacent, and one set of skis). Most likely won’t work if the boards are bigger due to width but really happy it fit our configuration!

As Advertised!! Easy Install As Well!!!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've had this ski rack fixed and set up on the Yakima Round Bars in the past and it works perfectly as you'd expect!


Looking for a ski rack to fit my 2019 Subaru Forester. It has a rack attached to the top. Will the Snow PaCk Extender Work?

These racks are meant to work with almost any factory crossbars, so you should be good to go!
