Yeah no problem just trying to help a a guy out. Cheetahs are good I've seen a lot of people use them, keep in mind to get clear of the rack if you're about to fall off without your skis in the rack.
Also not sure if you have read any of the other sled skiing advice in these forums but there are some good tips. Put your ski boots in a raft bag and wear your winter boots until you get to where you're skiing is the biggest one I can think of
Im actually in your neck of the woods, haven't made it to golen/revy in a while, blue river is more our stomping grounds, pretty close, same idea.
When we started we only wore ski boots as well, one day an old guy stopped us in the parking lot and told us about the boot trick, some of our group puts their ski boot liners in their winter boots and swap. Now that were punching into areas that require some very technical riding it's a godsend. We've even found it to be more efficient time wise, we have our sleds packed with skis and boots and ready to go on the trailer before we even leave the hotel/cabin, that way when we get to the staging area we just pull the sleds off and go zero time wasted in the parking lot, then put the boots on when you're ready to lap. to each their own though.
I guess that's what I like best about our racks as compared to all the others The skis fit so perfectly to the seat that you can't even notice them while sledding, they don't stick out the end and are nice and tight at the back of the sled and are well supported so there is nothing to worry about if you roll it when stuck or because you fucked up. I sometimes bring two pairs of skis with it if im skiing alot or if im doubling, works fantastic with the mantandem, we can even stick three pairs in it and tripple, (mantandem with a dick beater haha).
With our racks and boot setup I bring my skis with me even if im out just sledding or out exploring new terrain just in case we find something for a few quick laps. Its nice to be able to sled at full capacity with no worries carrying all the sled gear and a couple scoop shovels haha.
