SNOGO merges skiing with downhill mountain biking. The familiar motions of mountain-bike riding are paired with snow skis designed for all types of snow conditions, creating an experience for riders of any skill level. Experienced snow-sports enthusiasts, as well as those who are new to the slopes will find SNOGO equally exciting, and easy to learn and enjoy. 

Whether you want to enjoy a low-impact, scenic day on the mountain or a day of shredding the hill with your friends, our bike is the ideal choice.

Our mission is to provide even more access and new experiences, across snow-covered mountains, for an ever-changing snow-sports community. We respect tradition. We embrace evolution. And we hope that you will join us on our journey, through a shared, life-long love for snow.

After three years of testing various models and prototypes, the SNOGO bike is finally ready for the world! We are on Kickstarter to raise necessary funds to manufacture our current prototype. Our suppliers and manufacturers are ready to get started as soon as the needed funding is available. 

Your financial support of this Kickstarter is essential to get SNOGO on the mountain. Please join our community of supporters and participate as an early adopter. We need you to make this dream happen.

SNOGO uses a 3-blade platform with an unparalleled design to provide a stable, reliable ride. Our design articulates the rider’s movements with unparalleled control, adapting to various terrain. You get all the benefits of stability and comfort without being strapped into bulky equipment. And maybe best of all: no more worrying about catching an edge.

With over 50 years of industry experience, our engineers, mechanics, and designers have thoughtfully and methodically developed a bike that is all about the details. And through every snow-capped adventure, our bike provides a responsive, fully-immersive recreational experience. So you can experience the snow like never before.

Ski-bikes date back 150 years where they were built from metal or wood for winter transportation in Europe. It wasn’t until the mid 20th century that ski-bikes were designed and used for recreational purposes. A wide variety of snow-bikes and ski-bobs entered the market over the next half of a century.

To advance the sport, our SNOGO team had to address the safety and functionality of the ski-bike for recreational use. We have thoroughly researched, ridden and studied previous models to ensure that we are honoring our history while producing a safer, easier model for entry-level and seasoned riders alike.

TOGETHER, LET’S MAKE WINTER SPORTS’ HISTORY. 

SNOGO began with a passion for the snow, and a deep love of the outdoors. Making mountains more accessible during the winter is the driving force behind everything we do. There’s just something about nature: being surrounded by its fierce beauty and exposed to the most basic elements strikes a chord in all of us. It’s been proven that spending time outdoors has a positive impact on blood pressure, mental health, and overall physical condition. And there’s no better place to feel alive than in the crisp, winter air of the mountains. 

Backers of this project aren’t only supporting SNOGO—but are supporting the snow sports industry, the very impulse to get out there and explore. 

The funds raised will be used to:
  • Pay for tooling and molds 
  • Production of factory samples 
  • Sample testing 
  • Mass production and distribution 

Additional funds will be used for:

  • Creating a line of accessories 
  • Establishing rental fleets

We are looking for people who have a passion for being in the mountains and who share our vision of continually innovating. If you are as excited about SNOGO as we are, please fund our project and help spread the word so, together, we can make SNOGO a reality.

Risks and challenges

We have dedicated the last two and a half years sourcing the best materials and selecting the most experienced suppliers in order to mitigate as many potential risks as possible. We have worked out an agreement with our manufacturers to begin production before the end of the campaign in order to get ahead of schedule. Shipping will begin by late December or early January 2016, soon after this Kickstarter campaign ends.

However, as with any new product, there is potential for unforeseen challenges, such as: delays in customs, production, or shipping. The good news? We have a dedicated and talented team of individuals ready for hiccups—and we are fully committed to seeing this project through. We promise to keep you in the loop, and make sure you know what is happening every step of the way. We believe in transparency and communication, so our backers will be the first to know about any unplanned hurdles or delays. We'll be updating you regularly and letting you know exactly what's going on as SNOGO development progresses. After all, we’re moving these mountains together.
