Frequently Asked Questions?
Why use a snowmobile rack?
A snowmobile rack allows you to carry the gear you want to bring with you up the mountain without wearing it physically on your back. A snowmobiler will always want to carry safety critical equipment in a backpack, but for the fun gear for skiing or snowboarding that gets too heavy and reduces the enjoyment of the day via the physical toll and incumbrance of riding.
How do skis or snowboards fit on the rack?
Each rack has pre-drilled holes aligned to fit either our ski holder or snowboard holder, so you can set your rack up for how you like to head downhill. One ski holder or snowboard holder can be fitted to either side, so a total of two carriers can be installed for two sets of skis, two snowboards, or one of each. Each ski or snowboard holder must be purchased separately.
How does the snowboard holder a snowboard?
There are two main elements. There is a covered bolting system to hold the skis up and support them tightly in three directions. A 3/8" stainless bolt fits into the side of the rack and is covered inside, outside, and from the bottom with a durable plastic sheath to protect the snowboard edges. Then there is the strapping system. This holds the snowboard down, so it doesn't bounce out while riding. This uses a combination of webbing, a protective and specialized rubber coating for cut resistance, and a snowboard buckle for tension. This allows for a very tight and secure hold of the snowboard that is easily manageable even with gloved hands, and durable enough to handle the tough environment that is the backcountry.
What makes Port Tack Racks Better than other options?
The main features of the Port Tack Racks system are durability, simplicity, safety, and price. Our racks are molded and welded perfectly to provide tremendous form stability. We have not had a rack fail in almost ten years, and the welding is beautiful. This is not an accident, as the design incorporates a rolled aluminum sheet and pre-rounded fittings for the pipe. Our welding is done in an aluminum-only weld shop, so there is no carbon contamination.
For safety, you'll notice all rounded corners of considerable radius. This avoids the very real risk of cutting which can occur from many of the CNC rack options available. When the sled rolls on top of the rider, or the rider gets slammed back into the rack from hitting a tree or other object, it is much safer to have the impact spread on a rounded surface than a surface that looks like a knife edge.
Finally, we stripped down the product requirements to the bare minimum, and have included everything needed and nothing extra to provide tremendous value to the community.
How long does shipping take?
We are located in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada ship with Canada Post and US Postal System (USPS) . For most of the main riding locations like BC, Alberta, Washington State, Oregon, California, Utah, Nevada, Montana, and Idaho the racks can be delivered in about 2-3 days. It can take a day or two longer, depending on weekends. For Alaska and back east, add a few days.

- Phil Ghent
very easy install and the welding and quality is great! The value is amazing compared to other snowboard rack brands and i couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!
I bought the Rack and two sets of board/ski straps. Everything fit on my 2009 XP and looks solid.
Rack is fine straps are good, all in all a great setup, the only thing I would complain about is the mounting system, the carriage bolts for the track on the Polaris sleds have ripped out of the track on me once. Need a better mounting system.
Hi Shamus, sorry to hear about the mounting to your sled. We don't offer carriage bolts, so for people wanting to mount to the Polaris tracks they'll have to get their own bolts. Glad you're enjoying the rack and snowboard system.
