Skis and bindings have a hard enough life without getting sandblasted by road salt, grit, acid rain and polluted snow while riding naked in a roof-top car rack. Ski bases can be cleaned off, but road grime is especially damaging to bindings, and much harder to clean. Transporting your skis inside the vehicle is the best way to keep them clean and lovely, as well as upping your gas mileage. If they must ride shotgun on top, at least put them in a ski bag.
