Although, before we get into the Ski-Doo company, let us touch upon how to search in our classified ads. If you are here, you have already narrowed down your search from all snowmobiles for sale to Ski-Doo snowmobiles for sale specifically. Be aware that you can get more specific still with model, year, or location. For example, you can do a search like, “2009 Ski-Doo snowmobiles” or “2010 Ski-Doo snowmobiles for sale in MA.” Or, be super specific with a search like, “Ski-Doo 380 for sale in Albany, NY.”

With a brand name such as Ski-Doo, you should always be aware that sellers may list items under “Ski-Doo” as two words, or “SkiDoo” as one word. “SkiDoo snowmobiles for sale” or “SkiDoo for sale,” are likely the same thing as Ski-Doo for sale; the terms and spellings are basically used interchangeably. In any case, we have new ads listed every day, so check back if you do not see the ideal Ski-Doo sale for you. Also, feel free to search for parts for a snowmobile here in our classifieds ads, such as snowmobile skis for sale.

The popular Ski-Doo brand started out with a man named Joseph-Armand Bombardier, who in 1958 created what is now considered to be the very first modern snowmobile. Prior to even that creation, Bombardier had started his company, Bombardier Recreational Products, or as it’s known today, BRP.

Bombardier was the first person to mass produce snowmobiles, and he is credited with being the person who created the sport of snowmobiling; snowmobiles were initially created more so as a means for traveling in the winter, and less so for recreation purposes. Today, a Ski-Doo for sale can be used just for fun, or it can be used as a means of getting around a snowy area.

The first Ski-Doo snowmobile debuted in 1959, and they have continued to advance since then. In 1962, a fiberglass hood was added. The lineup expanded in the 1970s, with Ski-Doo snowmobiles for sale improving drastically in terms of appearance, comfort, and safety. Also in the 1970s, Bombardier worked with snowmobile clubs to create a snowmobile trail system. If you have already read our article on the general Snowmobile classifieds section here at Want Ad Digest, then you already know how vitally important snowmobile trails are.

Let us then take a look at a few of the different types of models you may find in used Ski-Doo snowmobiles for sale. First, there is the Skandic 380, which is Ski-Doo’s entry level utility snowmobile. The Skandic 380 is lightweight but powerful, and is advertised as a machine that will work hard. This Ski-Doo snowmobile for sale is used by farmers, loggers, fishermen, and other professionals.

The MXZ line of snowmobiles consists of very powerful Ski-Doos that are not meant for “leisurely riding.” The Summit line is considered to be the “ultimate mountain machines” that are meant to handle steep inclines, so if you are going to be snowmobiling on somewhat vertical areas you may want to consider this type of Ski-Doo snowmobile for sale.

The GSX line is advertised as being both powerful and comfortable, and these snowmobiles are ideal for nearly any type of rider. The GTX line of Ski-Doo snowmobiles for sale include incredibly lightweight machines with two engine options as of 2009: a smooth Rotax 1200 engine, and a more environmentally friendly Rotax 600 engine. Lastly, we have the Legend Ski-Doo snowmobile, which is meant for fun and relaxing rides, and the Expedition Ski-Doo snowmobile, which is very strong and rigorous and is not meant for leisurely riding.

Of course, when you are checking out used Ski-Doo snowmobiles for sale, in addition to saving money by purchasing your snowmobile used, you can ask the seller questions to ensure you will be happy with your purchase. Ask what kind of riding they did with their Ski-Doo, what they recommend in terms of maintenance, etc. Most people who are passionate about their hobby, in this case snowmobiling, are more than happy to speak with others about it. Especially if you are a beginner to snowmobiling, do consider asking the seller what kind of advice they may have for you and your Ski-Doo.
