Overview

Joseph-Armond Bombardier devoted his entire life to finding mechanical designs that would help conquer the elements in his part of the world — Valcourt, Quebec, Canada, where winters are long and deep with snow. One of his greatest inventions was a motorized snow vehicle, the first of which allowed a missionary friend of his to cross miles of woods that would have not otherwise been passable.

From that first Bombardier snow machine to the newer Formula series models, all Ski-Doo snowmobiles to 1995 are covered in this Collector’s Guide to Ski-Doo Snowmobiles.

The book traces the development of the snowmobiles, their engines, suspensions, and comfort features. It takes you from the age of wooden skis and bodywork to today’s light, powerful, and aerodynamic Ski-Doo models. Technical specifications and year-by-year updates are included, along with 135 photos.
