I'll bet airboats really move on the snow. Unfortunately in South Louisiana we don't get much snow. I sort of know what you mean. I didn't realize that airboats can go fast on land as well as the water until I was running my Gator in the back yard and it flipped end over end 3 times. Luckily, only a plastic piece on the rudder was damaged. That was an easy fix and a noob lesson.
