GOVECS electric scooter with Snow Kit Solution - Click above to watch the video after the jump

Depending on where you happen to live on the planet, two-wheeled transportation may be anything from a year-round necessity to a few-months-of-the-year hobby. Right about now, at least half of all motorcyclists here in the United States have their scooters and motorcycles packed warmly away in the garage. But does it have to be that way?

Well, that partially depends on your penchant for excitement and snow sports. We remember having all kinds of fun on snowmobiles in our teen years, and after watching the video after the break, we have a new obsession to look forward to: snow-scooting.

That's right, remove the front wheel of your scooter, replace it with a ski and add a nice, knobby tire out back. Instant snow-scooter! Best of all, the machine from Govecs Slidescooters featured in today's video is electric, so there's no noxious exhaust to spoil America's pristine natural surroundings. Oh, and we apologize in advance for the soundtrack. Turn the volume down and check out the video after the jump.

      Looks kewl!

      Ok so it can handle packed snow but what about deep snow, what's the max depth?

      I didn't think I was going to need coffee today, but that music almost made me fall asleep right in my chair.

        Scooter looks cool......Who chose the music? *YAWN*

      That is the same thing essentially as the Chrysler SnoRabbit SnoRunner, from 70s/80s(?).

        came here to say just that.

        except the Chrysler had a tracked belt in the rear like a regular snowmachine... this seems to just be modifying a regular scooter vs. a dedicated purpose-built deathwish.

        the two i've seen both were called SnoRunner by Chrysler.
