Any snow boarders?

I have previously put my board through the trunk and back seat, but have considered getting BMW's base support system and snow board transport attachment. Anyone else using this setup?

Yes, however I use the combo ski/snowboard holder to carry my board. I thought I had a pic, but couldn't find it.

It's a bit noisy and you're not supposed to go over 80mph or something with it, but it's stayed on for continuous periods around 100mph or so...

I'd be too scurred to do a jump like that! Yeah right now I just use the fold down seats, but thought a rack might be better. Wish the pass through was wide enough for my board.

I actually think a roof rack looks good, but gear in the trunk is much easier and convenient.

I don't really like taking the M3 to the mountain though. The drive up is nice, but worried about getting dings from someone walking through the parking lot with their snowboard. I see it all the time.....people are just so careless and rude about this.

It looks good but I told myself I'm not going up there until the city itself is covered in snow or the road conditions tell me I need chains.
