For those who don't need a full blown snowmobile, this Gas Powered Snowboard ($2,000) might be a nice, unnecessary alternative. Powered by a 6.5-hp 4-cycle gas engine, this yellow snow scooter jets you around any type of snow and can accommodate riders up to 250 lbs. It's got a max speed of 18 mph and can go for two hours straight on only 3/4-gallon of gas.
If you happen to live where it snows a lot during the winter, do yourself a favor, ditch the car/truck, and do your commuting on the Arctic Cat Z1 Turbo Sno Pro ($13,300). This snow-bound beast boasts a 4-stroke, 1056cc twin-cylinder engine pumping out 177 hp, Fox Float ski shocks, a two-inch rear suspension shock, a 128" Cobra track, hydraulic disc brakes, and more.
Part beach cruiser, part motorcycle, Ridley Vintage Motorbikes ($2,000) are small-engine powered bicycles featuring old-time looks and real-world utility. Each style is offered with either a 49 or 70cc engine, and also feature pedals for zero-emission propulsion, a tank-style frame made from either steel or aluminum, Shimano brake hubs, 24- or 26-inch tires, and more.
