In an old-style, car-roof ski rack, which is the correct way to load skis, ski tips to the front or to the rear?

Tips in the rear! Am I the only one who knows this? I just threw out my Barrecrafters rack a year ago!

My answer to your question about the old way of positioning skis atop, let’s say, a 1972 Chrysler, driving north up Rte. 17 from NYC to Belleayre, for instance, is this:
Ski tips to the rear. Will prevent wind shear.
Happy skiing and Happy New Year!

Tips in the rear, facing down. Still using my dad’s old A&T carrier bolted to Saab roof rack mounts. They are a little too wide because they were meant for a 1970s station wagon and 6 pairs of skis.

Tips to the rear, unless you are driving backwards.
