1960s Vintage SnowmobileInv_SkiDoo_Char_12x12 $44
The first snowmobile was invented by J. A. Bombardier of Montréal in 1959. His forerunner to all modern sleds was originally named the 'Ski-Dog' (a reference to sled dogs). But an accidental typo at the printers changed the name to Ski-Doo. Bombardier liked the mistake so much he decided to stick with it.
When I was growing up, the term 'Ski-Doo' was commonly, and incorrectly, used in conversation by people who talked about their snowmobiles. Today, most people use the term 'sled.'
The inspiration behind our '1960s Vintage Snowmobile' art print
I have great memories of hours and hours of sledding down winter trails in the neighbourhood of our southern Ontario farm. It takes me back to those long, cold winter days, hauling wood for the woodstove, or travelling across country roads and trails to meet friends.
