    1up rack for snowboards?

    Anyone here ever try using their 1up rack to carry snowboards? I'm leaving for Mammoth in 2 days and have no room in the car for the boards. I usually take one snow trip annually up to Mammoth, so I never invested in a snowboard rack. I'm thinking about maybe laying them flat and clamping them down w bungie's. If anyone has any good ideas or has tried something like this, lmk.

    doesn't sound that secure to me and an easy way to lose a snowboard.

    Outside of that... can't help you on cheap solutions (as I have a Yakima cargo box and a Yakima Powder Hound)

    1up rack for snowboards?

    lay it as you would a bike





    the bindings will secure it against the arms. there is some wiggle, and can't imagine being friendly to the edge

    may work better if you have a snowboard bag

    scratch that thought maybe... my Burton roller bag is too thick for it

    Thanks for the ideas. I tried it with a snowboard bag and drove around the block to test it. It seems like its going to work. I'll probably bungie it down as well. My snowboard bag is a minimalist bag, so it's not that bulky. I'll post a pic later.

    Old thread but I had the same idea and tried it - works perfectly. I have a 58cm board with Flow bindings and stuffed it in my bag. I would consider using a split length of garden hose to protect the edges or something but for now, the bag has it covered. It is very stable and does not move around. I have the fattie wheel adapters on my 1up but it would work without them as well.
