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!
-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
-Drill ( 5/16)
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.
Step 2: Ski Prep
To get the right length for each of the skis I laid them down next to the scooter and measured off what looked right. I cut the front ski 22 in. from the tip, and the back ski 24 in. from the tip, the the "bindings" will go 13 in. from the tip for both skis. The goal is to get as much ski as possible but still be ride-able. If the skis are cut to short there wont be enough surface area and deeper snow will be impossible to ride through because you will sink, to long and the scooter will be hard to maneuver.
