The vehicles are known as the snowmobiles and they are manufactured in a special way to move fast on snowy surfaces. They have skis like the sledges at the front and rubber tracks at the rear. The snowmobiles usually have two-stroke engines , but the four-stroke ones are gaining increasing popularity with every passing day. Several types of tournaments of snowmobile are held every year and different categories of the sport are present. Watercross and Snowmobile skipping are some of these and a World Championship of the sport is also held every year during the summer time.
