Canadian Mazda3 owners

I guess technically this is ski gear, but moderator, feel free to move it.

I'd really like to get a factory roof rack that installs in the rain gutters, but apparently Mazda USA doesn't offer one for the 3 sedan. Anybody know different? Especially the Northern neighbors - I know you guys have some different options than we do.

If that doesn't work out, does anyone want to share their good &/or bad experiences with the aftermarket racks? I know they must work or they wouldn't be so popular - but I'm hesitant to start sticking things in the door sills. I can just imagine it making the seals leak, etc.

In the meantime, I'm grateful for fold-down rear seats; I'm sure that's the real reason why skis have gotten shorter!

Isn't it better that your skis are inside the car anyway?.. I mean, when they're outside, they have to deal with the elements that you drive through...

Yeah, I like them inside, but in the future I'd like to be able to take more people along. I envision putting the skis in some kind of bag before putting them on the rack.

If you need to take more people, pool together money and rent an SUV for the day/week. The amount of times you actually end up doing that will probably be the same price as the rack.
