Just be sure to bring a bungee to secure them. In an accident, skis can do a lot of damage inside the compartment (to you).
Twice this year people I know have been knocked unconcious by flying gear when they lost it on an icy road. One was clobbered by a Fender Stratocaster (guitar) and another by his deer rifle in it's hard case.
Wow! I never thought about that. Thanks for the info, Yuki!
Do you know what you should secure the skis on to??
Looong ago, my X and I were going to rent the smallest car from a rental place in Colorado. We were very grateful that they were all out of the smallest cars, because they happen to have a blizzard, and couldn't have driven through it with a little car (so many cars were stranded on the highway). This is just what's happened to us, and it's just what I think, so don't say nasty things to me if you disagree.
