Queenstown Ski Trip with Thule Accessories
Our ŠKODA Brand Manager Tim ten Hove was lucky enough to drive an Octavia Scout to Queenstown recently and of course we loaded it with Thule accessories for him to be able to fit all the necessary luggage that comes with a winter ski trip!
A ski season road trip requires a lot of extra gear, with skis or snowboards, boots, poles and extra clothing. A sleek, stylish Thule roof box gives you ultimate protection and security, carrying everything from outdoor gear to luggage to everyday items. Or, for a simpler option, Thule roof racks can transport your sporting gear up the mountain.
The roof box and roof rack system is cause for applause as it is extremely easy to install, even by yourself and I was very surprised by the amount it fit inside. Dr Who should be upgrading his Tardis for one of these!
We had 3 snowboard setups with room for more, we had the ski/board holders which came with strops to hold the gear tightly and securely while navigating South Island roads and Queenstown ski fields
The setup I was using was very silent while travelling on the open road and I didn’t even notice I had it on the roof. Even with all the undulations in the road, it was silent with no knocks or rattles.
Our Thule Roofbox range starts at $899, including free fitting.
Roof racks start from $219 (plus $70 fitting fee).
