An amusing view of the machine that has taken the country by winter storm: the snowmobile, revving, raring, ready to go. What the motorboat was to the summer lake, this motorized sled now is to the snow-covered fields. This film shows it all--the pull of this sit-down sport, the eagerness of the trade to keep it booming, the daring rivalry of the racing crowd, and the bemused pleasure of the family outing.

Is the snowmobile part of our way of life in Canada? In what geographical communities has it brought major change, and what have its social impacts been? In your community, is snowmobiling a sport, a pastime or a means of transportation?
