A Brief History of the Snowmobile

The first attempts at building a vehicle that would move over snow on runners happened 80 years ago. Many dreamed of building a power-driven sled, especially where heavy snowfalls often meant the difference between life and death when attempting to transport an ill person to emergency care.

Snowmobilers talking In 1935, a snowmobile was built with skis in front and a sprocket wheel and tracked system in back. It carried 12 people, and family doctors, veterinarians, ambulance and taxi drivers were first in line to purchase one. A modified version found a market in the logging industry.

It was the late 1950s, with the development of smaller gasoline engines, before the one- or two-passenger lightweight chassis snowmobile was marketed - and with it, a new recreational sport was born.

Ten years later, there were dozens of manufacturers producing snowmobiles that sold for a few hundred dollars a piece. Today, four manufacturers will produce almost 150,000 snowmobiles to be sold annually worldwide.

The history of the "snow machine" is yet to be complete. Today's snowmobile bears little resemblance to earlier models. By today's standards, the machines of the 60's and 70's are considered antiques.
