Don't you own a snowmobile?

 

Maybe this is your machine ready to come home!

I have driven a Diablo many a mile. Most of them had a big rubber flap across the rear of the tracks to keep the snow from getting on the driver. They were slow and heavy. Get one bogged down in the snow and you had a real problem on your hands. I been there done that.

Here's a pretty good video showing the ins and outs of the Diablo.

These guys collect Vintage Sleds and make some pretty well produced entertaining videos IMO
