I built a mount using gun rack mounts last year, but didn't end up using them as we didn't really have any snow. Gun mounts were easy to mount up and held the boards well, but I decided they were too chintzy to hold up to a roll over so I decided to make my own that should be more durable, and position the boards better.



Front mount slips over rack


Rear mount slips over bumper


And 2 boards mounted up


I just need to decide on how I'm going to strap them down (currently have an old binding strap that works but will probably do something new) and drill and tap them to put a bolt through to hold them in position. I'm pretty happy with how they came out and will update with any changes or revamps.

Modified Fatcat

I had the gun rack setup on my last sleds and this worked okay, but I went with a Thule Fatcat modification with my new Polaris using the factor slots and carriage bolts to attach it.

To do a mount across the back of your sled making it flat is a little more complicated but the best thing you can do is something similar to a thule rack. These are more expensive because they are larger in size. The best thing you can do is get a rack that is a little taller so your bindings can be on the inside of your sled so the bottom of your board or skis are on the outside rubbing or grazing the trees. We have Cheetah racks on our site and we have never had any issues with them or our boards or skis while using them. Good luck!

Best picture I could find of my rack. Homemade, mostly 1/2" square steel tubing, uses factory/existing bolts, holds 2 pr skis/2 boards, or 4 pr skis, stacked in the middle. All behind the seat, zero running board interference,, only downside is that you have to be careful doing 3 point turns in the woods, it is LONG with skis on it.

I like it. Starting its fourth? season, mostly original used snowboard binding straps, it is bomber.
