Rope Tow Ski and Snowboard Harness

The Rope Tow Nutcracker Harness has been developed after years of skiing and snowboarding on Canterbury’s club ski fields. The Rope Tow Nutcracker Harness reduces the hassle and increases the comfort of rope tows.  The harness comes complete with everything ready to go. Just slip it on and ride.

  • Rolls up small for carrying to and from the slopes.
  • Perfect for Club Field access to backcountry skiing.
