Did you know......
A crude model was first built in 1908......in 1913,
Virgil White coined the term "snowmobile" when he built
his using blueprints from a Model T Ford, adding tracks and skis for steering.
We can thank David Johnson and Edgar Hetteen of Polaris Industries in
Roseau, MN for the first recreational snowmobile they invented in 1954.
