The history of snowmobiling in Maine goes back so far that there were no snowmobiles at that time.

As we can read in the great, “History of Snowmobiling new-window,” by Stephen Campbell, Museum Director at the Northern Timber Cruisers Snowmobile Club, Inc.: new-window   “The Wright Brothers Flew in 1903, the very first vehicle that was built to go in snow wasn’t built until 1908. That was actually the Lombard log hauler designed and built in Waterville, Maine. It was a large cumbersome machine that resembled a steam locomotive, only it had a half track design and front skis.”
