A favourite summer pastime is to pack up the car and family and head north to remote cabins and cottages for a weekend. Getting away from our busy lives and reconnecting in the wilderness is relaxing and restorative to the soul. Many people are only able to enjoy these trips in the summer due to roads becoming impassable with snowy weather or ice forming on lakes and preventing boating in. In order to get to the most remote cabin for the utmost wilderness experience, the perfect winter vehicle would have to be able to traverse ice, snow and open water.
Air Rider Hovercraft is that perfect winter vehicle. If you have a cottage that you can only access by boat, you must wait until the water freezes when winter hits to be able to head in on a snowmobile. With a hovercraft, you never have to worry about the condition of the lake: fully frozen, partially thawed or mostly water — doesn’t matter! A hovercraft will be able to get you there.
If your remote getaway is accessible by road, you could still be hindered by a large snowfall in the winter, making roads impassable. The beauty of a hovercraft is that it hovers! Since it doesn’t have to go through the snow, it never matters how much actually falls.
There are additional benefits of using a hovercraft as the ideal winter vehicle for getting to your cottage or cabin:
- Comfortable seating for up to 5 people — perfect for the whole family!
- Payload capacity of 900 lbs.
- Heater available to keep the chill at bay.
- Room for luggage and other belongings.
