Snowmobilers seem to be able to adapt any sport to include the use of a snowmobile!

The CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) credits British Columbia native, Eric Oddy, with pioneering snowmobile paragliding.

Paragliders use a harness with inflatable wings to be able to take off like a bird and fly. In snowmobile paragliding that harness is strapped onto a snowmobile, with the snowmobiler on its seat instead of being attached to the harness.
