Can the Yakima SnowBank be Mounted on the Top and Lower Level of the Yakima Exo System?


Hi Is it possible to have ski racks mounted on the top and bottom level? I would like to carry more than 5 pairs so skis si would need two of the racks. Thanks.

Yes! I confirmed with Yakima that the Yakima SnowBank # Y57VR will work on both shelves (at the same time) of the Yakima Exo System Swing Away Hitch Extender - 2" Hitches # Y82VR. However, the skis that are loaded on the bottom shelf might become dirty from snow/debris during transport.

If you want more protection against the snow/debris, you can always install mud flaps or use the top shelf only of the Exo system with the Snowbank. For the other skis, you can use a roof-mounted carrier like the Thule SnowPack # TH7326B. The SnowPack allows you to attach up to 6 pairs of skis or 4 boards onto the carrier. It also comes with locks included for theft-deterrence.

In order to install the LiftOp, you will need a crossbar system on your roof. Please respond to this answer with the year/make/model of your vehicle and I will be happy to recommend the roof rack and mud flaps that work best with your vehicle.
