Hi All.

I have a 2010 Forester and Id prefer NOT to mount things on the roof (wind noise, blocks the moonroof, etc.).

So I was thinking Id get a hitch rack for bikes with the optional ski attachment to carry our skis in the winter.

Ive heard some people say that carrying skis in a rear hitch rack is not a good idea because they will get too dirty and grimy from stuff getting kicked up by the car. Others have said that it can get just as dirty on top from highway travel.

Id be interested in opinions/advice about whether using a rear mounted hitch rack for skis is a particularly bad idea?
