Snow Scooter!

In the hours after MEETERS at MITERS, Dane and I came up with a ski attachment for our scooters, for the purpose of snowy scooter shenanigans.  Both our scooters have the same axle diameter, so switching it from scooter to scooter just takes adding a few shaft collars for spacing.

It was definitely a success.  Fast turns cause the back wheel to slip out, and at one point I accidentally turned too fast and did a 180 at speed.  Fortunately since the ground was covered in snow, it was a pretty soft landing.  The brake is pretty much useless, but you can stop quickly shifting your weight forward and going into a sideways slide, like you would on skis.
