I've always wanted a scooter with skis attached so I made one a couple of years ago but it broke soon after because of the poor design. So after another failed design I finally made one that works well and has not broken yet, I call it the Skoot 'n' Ski! This mod  allows you to scooter in the snow whether its on flat ground or down a steep ski slope. The best part is that once the winter season is over you can simply take the skis off and put the wheels back on, making it an all season scooter!  

Materials needed:

-Skis (preferable an old par you do not mind cutting up!)
-Scrap Aluminum (approx. 1 in. and 1/8 thick, a ruler or yard stick works)
-Nuts and bolts

Tools used:

-Hack Saw
-Drill ( 5/16)
-Allen wrench

Step 1: Scooter Prep

To get started on your skoot 'n' ski you will have to remove the wheels on your scooter. To do this use an allen wrench and unscrew the bolts, make sure you do not lose any of the pieces, then remove the wheels.
<p>I used fir 2x4 bits to attach the skis to the scooter instead of bent aluminum. Scooter (sans wheels), skis, and wood all scavenged from the dump.</p>
I will do it.
<p>any suggestions to the person who doesnt have skis *cough cough* me</p>
<p>you could buy some old crappy on e-bay</p>
Great idea! I loved this idea and just made one out of some scrap wood and it works great!
Thank you! glad its working for you. I just changed the wheels for skis for the winter on my scooter, I love it!
I would love to see a pic of this in action!
I would too! If it snows I will make sure to get some pictures and videos.
great idea for canada
I've always wanted to try this but have never had skis before. Great Instructable!
that was my problem for the longest time but I finally went to good will (a 2nd hand store) and found a cheap used pair for about $10
I'll try eBay....
Very nice! I definitely want to try this. Now winter needs to cooperate and give me some consistent snow..!
