We passed a Snobear on our way back from a Mother’s Day hike.

It looks like it would be good on a packed trail or frozen lake. Self propelled ice shanty!

The first year I had my Snow Trac one of these appeared on Lake Okaboji in Iowa. I was running my machine on the lake, and saw him coming across at an angle to the direction I was going. I made a bee line towards him and got there just as he had stopped. I watched as they let the suspension down, and the floor of the machine settled down flat to the ice. I could see the occupants in the windows, as the looked at me in the Snow Trac. Always wished I would have gotten out and talked to them, but I had several people with me who just wanted a ride. I bet they are a killer rig for ice fishing...
Some have fold down bunks so you can spend the night out on the ice. Pretty pricy unit, around 30K if I remember correctly..
