As we head into winter you may be wondering about the best way to get to your weekend at Sun Valley, Whistler or beyond with your skis and snowboards. Well, ask no more. Whispbar is the answer. It’s called the Whispbar WB300 and it was just selected by National Geographic as one of the Must-Have Gear of the 2012 Fall/Winter. But don’t just take my word for it, check it out.
You don’t realize how loud your traditional rooftop rack is until you’ve driven with Yakima’s almost silent Whispbar. And you don’t realize how cool a ski rack can be until you’ve used Whispbar’s new WB300 Snow Mount. A cool ski rack? Actually, yes—the Snow Mount slips on top of the Whispbar and looks like it was sculpted from the fairing of a high-end German sports car or nabbed from some NASA Mars rover. In fact, it holds (and locks) up to six pairs of skis or four snowboards, and if you have high bindings you can get a three-inch lift for more roof clearance.
