Some powersports enthusiasts refuse to be deterred from outdoor adventure when the temperature drops and snow covers their favorite riding paths and trails. Snowmobiles were created for this exact purpose. The first winter vehicles were prototyped in the 1910s but it was Joseph Bombardier’s invention in 1935 that became the basis for today’s modern snowmobile. Designed for cross-country transport in situations where automobile travel proved to be too treacherous, snowmobiles were widely employed throughout the Winter months in the uppermost parts of North America, where Winter seasons were exceptionally brutal. It didn’t take long for motorheads and speedfreaks to develop high performance racing versions of these Winter vehicles whose engines originally were only able to muster a modest 5 horsepower. Manufacturers such as Bombardier, Arctic Cat, Yamaha, and Polaris pushed the boundaries of snowmobile performance. Currently, Yamaha produces the world’s fastest production snowmobile, the 2019 Yamaha SideWinder SRX LE. Since its inception in the 1990s era of “Extreme Sports”, snowmobile racing continues to maintain a loyal following with such major events as the International 500, the World Championship Snowmobile Derby, the Iron Dog in Alaska, and World Championship Hill Climb which is held annually in Jackson, Wyoming in March.
