Crossover Snowmobile FAQs
Ski‑Doo Crossover snowmobiles are built to be just as confident on‑trail as they are capable off‑trail. By combining the best attributes of Ski‑Doo Deep Snow and Trail sleds, Ski‑Doo engineers created a Crossover lineup that offers equal parts confidence‑inspiring performance on‑trail and fun‑loving deep‑snow capability for backcountry adventure.
There are a number of differences from seats to starting systems and engine options. In general, trail snowmobiles offer a wider ski stance for flat cornering and stability in bumpy trail conditions. They also have shorter tracks for crisper handling around tight trail corners at higher speeds. Deep snow snowmobiles feature longer tracks for floatation in deep snow and narrower ski stances for agile handling in technical terrain. Crossover snowmobiles offer a combination of each, giving riders the best of both worlds both on and off the trail.
Crossover sleds are capable of confident trail rides as well as traversing deep‑snow backcountry terrain. However, not all areas are open to snowmobiles. Public land, such as national forrests and other publicly maintained areas, can be great places for off‑trail fun. Be sure to check the area you plan on riding before you go to make sure it's legal to ride there. When in doubt, contact a local club or environmental authority.
