Skis in a 90 ST

Has any one figured out how to carry skis in a D90 ST without doing damage to the interior. Feedback from others how they may have done this would be great. I do not have clearance to put on a roof rack and box. At worst you wrap in a blanket and lie it on the cubby, but there must be something more elegant.

Thule and Yakima have tire mounted vertical racks. Or a ski bag vs the blanket.

Ski bags. Or I have the Thule feet, crossbars and ski racks I've never used, but go on (and come off) in only a few minutes.

Use heavy duty velcro straps on each side of the bindings and strap to roll bar above doors

With the salt and shit flying around I would be hesitant to keep them outside. I would bag them and lay them across the back seat.

Diagonal on the floor under the rear bench always worked for us. When we had longer skies I would run them along the passenger side and just make the passenger deal with them for longer drives. Short hops to the hill were out the rear with the tailgate open (fiberglass ST in the winter).

Eventually I upgraded to a roof rack (Thule) and cargo box (Slimline Packasport) but we have kids and all kinds of crap now. Box does look a bit weird hanging off the front on the ST.
