Human Powered Snow Vehicle?

Hey guys, I live through frigid winters with lots of snow. Most people around me ride snowmobiles for fun, but I’ve never seen a fully reliable/efficient one. It can drop down to -45 Celsius here and there’s lots of snow and ice.

I want to go outside more in the winter, and I like the concept of a snow vehicle. I want to design a custom human-powered vehicle designed to explore decently-packed snow in cold conditions. I’d prefer it to be capable of decent speed relative to a bicycle.

Anyways, I wondered if anybody has any ideas to share? Lemme know!


Currently, I’m imagining a recumbent trike chassis with two skis upfront, and a studded fat bike tire on the rear. An enclosed cabin would be very cool but likely impractical.
