    i'd say the Kyosho Blizzard is your thing, there's a thread of it somewhere, its highly capable in the snow.

    RE: hobby grade rc snowmobiles?

    I found this site quite a few months back. [link]http://www.rcsnowmobiles.com/index.html[/link]

    Unfortunately it doesn't sound like he's going to be selling any, unless he can find a company to team up with to help get them to into production.
    I think they are pretty cool looking, and be sure to check out some of the videos they have on there. I would definately pick one up if they started makeing them!
    Have you ever wondered how much deeper the oceans would be without sponges?

    that polaris one looks cool but there is no parts support so you'd have to be good at fabricating your own parts. I've thought about it myself but not for that much money, maybe if it was under $80 or so.

    RE: hobby grade rc snowmobiles?

    in this forum currently, the top few threads next to this one are all about RC snowmobiles, take a sec to look, not to burst your bubble but we cover this question quite frequently =)
    and i do +1 on the kyosho blizzard, there currently more reliable and *fun* ready out of the box compared to any current RC sleds.
