Petrol powered snowboard

Whatever will they think of next to help us travel through the snow?

It will cost you $2,000, but the manufacturers claim it's the end of trudging through deep snow and will make your all journeys easier.

You don't need any special boots or bindings but you just jump aboard and off you go. 

It has a 6 horse power engine which drives a rubber belt that propels you through the snow much like a snowmobile.

It will run for 2 hours on just 3/4 gallon of petrol and apparently has a top speed of 10mph.

At the moment it's only for sale in the US.  If anyone has tried it out please let us known here at planetSKI what it's like.
