7 Soviet Snowmobile Sever-2

Soviet Snowmobile Sever-2

The snowmobile Sever-2 (North 2) was developed in 1959 in Helicopter Design Office of N. I. Kamov. It was created from the legendary Soviet automobile Pobeda (Victory). Firm skis and powerful aircraft engine AI-14 (260 horse-powers) made possible to move on snow or ice at a speed of 30-35 kilometers per hour. Sever-2 was
able to function at extreme temperatures, about 40-50 degrees centigrade. These snowmobiles delivered passengers and mail through the various areas of the Soviet Union, such as Siberia, the Far East and Kazakhstan. They also serviced settlements along the rivers Amur, Lena, Ob' and Pechora.

Some Russian tunning. ZAZ

During the Soviet times Zaporozhets (or ZAZ) was an inexpensive Ukranian automobile for ordinary people. It was famous for petrol heating in salon. Nowadays it has become a real rare car and one of the
symbols of Soviet era. Probably that's why some street racers and professional designers like to take old ZAZ models and convert into new racing cars. Some transformations look really amazing.

Artificial Skiing in Moscow

No, they don't have enough snow in Russia, they now make an artificial skiing resorts like this one in Moscow. This is gonna be the largest in Europe artificial skiing resort with a dome and artificial ice and snow. The length of the domed route is more than 400 meters (1200 ft) and is 60 m (180 ft) wide. More than 800 people can ski or snowboard at the same time. OK, this
has a sense somewhere in Saudi Arabia, where there is no snow at all and they are dreaming of a bit of freezing wind even at winter and there is a plain desert with no hills, but what the reason for it in Moscow, where there is a snow during 7 month a year, where there is a lot of natural hills around? Who can tell the reason for this?
