    There are no friends on a powder day—after you unload the Powderhound.

    When the Pacific throws a giant snowball of a storm your way, pile your friends in your car and load your weapons of choice onto the roof-mounted Yakima Powderhoud w/ Locks. The Powderhound fits round, square, and most factory crossbars and holds 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards. One-touch buttons have integrated SKS locks so you can lock your gear in the parking lot and sneak into a hot tub downtown. The Powderhorn’s soft rubber won’t scratch your boards and is designed with enough clearance to fit any binding.

    Fits 2013 Subaru Outback racks

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    After browsing a lot of reviews I was unsure if this rack would fit my Subaru Outback and the racks that came standard on the roof. IT DOES! And I have not noticed any 'whistling' issues that I have heard about either. Pretty simple installation and there are a ton of youtube videos on how to do so. Pretty stoked on this rack so far.

    Easy to use. But not perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great to use for every day ski use in the winter. Easy to put on skis and snowboards but i would not keep the rack on the car all year long because it's tall profile does create a lot of drag and diminishes fuel economy (for my vehicle it went down about 2mpg). Installation is a bit of a pain, but is still a worthy product because of its ease of use.

    Pretty cool!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've only had these recently, but I can tell you that it's a whole lot better than having to fuss around with the seats and get everything wet from melting snow.

    It's usually just my girlfriend and I, so the Powderhound is perfect and an inexpensive option for our 2 boards. (sorry to all the Big Cottonwood hitchhikers)

    Fit directly onto our Outback's factory bars. Put it together at night in 10-15 minutes without a hitch.

    Locks are great, prevents anyone from running away with our gear while we're having some beers or grub after a day on the mountain.

    Initial impressions: Easy and functional

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Initial impressions: Easy and functional, smaller than expected. They were very easy to install on my 2002 Grand Cherokee with square Thule crossbars and I had no problem using the Yakima parts that came with the rack to install it. I can fit one pair of skis and a snowboard, although it is tight, and two pairs of skis with room to spare. Overall I am happy with the racks and they are much easier to use then having to hassle with my seats to put them in my car.

    Great rack for the price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these to mount along side of my other Yakima rack on a Tahoe. I like this rack because of the swing arm bracket that allows you to mount it a little higher than the other rack. I can fit three pairs of fatty skis in this rack or 2 snow boards. So with the combination of the other rack I can carry enough skis/boards as I have seats.

    Not the most durable design but for the price I wont complain

    Great little rack for 1-2 sets

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    So this works perfect for 1 pair of powder skis, 1 snowboard or 2 pairs of thin park skis. Leaves me wanting more room, but I guess if you are a solo artist this would work just fine!

    Decent Rack

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

    This rack was significantly more difficult to install than the Thule rack that I have on my other car. That being said, it was not too tough (took me about 45mins and I am NOT great at this type of work). Once installed, it does work well.

    Yakima is the easiest system to install for any of their products, and I have used Thule, Proracks, Whispbar (before yakima), Kuat, Rockymount, so on and so forth. I have to say this is incredibly simple compared to some of the others to install. Just my personal opinion of course!

    Excellent rack

      I have used this rack for several seasons and love it. I am a ski/snowboard instructor at a commuter mountain so this rack sees a lot of use during the winter. It is easy to use, can store 2 boards and a pair of skis (as long as the boards aren't wide and the skis aren't powder), and has reliable locks. The only downsides I have encountered with this system is having the locks/latches freeze shut with snow overnight, and having a whistling sound from wind traveling through the plastic parts next to a pair of skis in the rack, however, both of these issues are only occasional. I always lock the rack for travel to ensure that the bars are actually latched because with a lot of gear, the latches become quite 'strained'. The rack takes a bit of time to install initially, but after the ties are on, the rack part comes off very easily for summer storage. I have this rack on Subaru factory crossbars, very wide, and it fits great.

      I have a 1999 GMC Yukon. Will the Yakima Powderhorn fit my factory luggage rack? Anyone have experience with mounting a rack to this style SUV?

      Yeh, yakima makes a product called mighty mounts which are designed to fit all factory bars. They cost about 40 bucks for a set but you can use them for pretty much any yakima product so they are incredibly universal.
