American racer and stuntman Ken Block arranged a race for the Can-Am Maverick X3 XRS Turbo racing buggy, equipped with tracks instead of wheels, at the ski resort at Lake Tahoe, California. For this, he used the slopes for snowboarding and skiing.

According to Carscoops, a tracked SUV cost Ken Block about $ 30,000. This car cannot drive on public roads, so the Ford F-450 used the driver to transport it to the snowy slopes.

Last year, Nissan declassified the concept of a roadster called 370Zki, which is based on the model 370Z. At the same time, the front wheels of the car were replaced by skis, and the rear wheels were replaced by tracks. The machine is created in a single copy and can move along the snowy slopes. In the process of creating a prototype of the 370Z, Nissan engineers had to completely redo the suspension, increase the wheel arches of the car, and raise the body of the roadster by three inches.

Also, the concept on the caterpillar is in Korean Kia. The car is built on the basis of Sorento Prime and is equipped with an autonomous control system. The machine was designed specifically for the delivery of skiers to the top of the slope and can move on snow and ice. In the company itself, the novelty is positioned as an “unmanned ski lift”.
