Squamat

Squamat is a multi-purpose, electric vehicle for mountain sports.

The project is inspired by climate change and the decreasing amount of falling snow on mountain resorts. In response, Squamat seeks to replicate the thrill of conventional snow sports with a wheeled vehicle. The vehicle’s movement imitates that of reptiles, and engages the body to steer, as is typical in snow sports. Users can also switch between a seated position, like a snowmobile, or a vertical stance resembling that of cross-country skiing. Capable of year-round use, the vehicle would also allow mountain resorts to diversify the activities they offer to visitors. Squamat initiates a new category in vehicle design, one that embraces the post-climate change environment.
