    Was heading home from some quick skiing at ABay and pulled off and couldn’t help but go grab some shots. I’m in love with the lines of this car.

    Based on that snowpack, I'd say someone is desperate for the season to start haha. Beautiful pictures, of course.

    Turns all Year. It's a thing we do here in Washington(and probably elsewhere) I am going to Mt Rainier tomorrow for a run of 23 months of at least skiing once a month. There are some here that have many years of doing this. It involves a bit of hiking this time of the year but what the heck. Nice ski and board rack BTW.

    How does it track in cross-winds with those big sails out back?

    That's awesome, the snow will melt by mid summer so we don't quite have that option here in CO but I get enough skiing over the winter to be satisfied to wait until next season!

    It was 70 by the time we got back down to Denver!!

    This trip I was a bit disappointed with how wobbly it was back there. The Yakima bike rack this is mounted into tilts down to allow access into the hatch and this pivot point allows for a lot of sway horizontally. That and the tubes on the ski holder aren't quite wide enough to have the straps on the back rack hold them in place. I'll be doing 2 things, first I'll line the pivot point on the bike holder with some thin strips of rubber or wood to keep it "snug" which should keep it in place much better and secondly I'll wrap the bars in something so the bike rack straps keep it in place. If the bike rack was a one piece without that pivot point this would be a much better set up.
