2020 Ski-Doo Summit: Master Every Challenge

February 2019 Feature

The deep-snow riding experience is unlike any other in the world. When it’s done aboard a Ski-Doo Summit, it creates a combination that’s nearly indescribable. Equal parts power and precision, it can take a rider from gracefully carving a powder-filled slope to fearlessly conquering a gnarly ascent with controlled chaos in a blink.

The key to such a versatile snowmobile is responsiveness—both in engine and platform. The combination of refined, ultra-agile chassis and dynamic Rotax 2-stroke engine offerings give Summit riders ultimate control in Mother Nature’s most epic winter playgrounds. It’s the ability for a rider to confidently plant themselves at the edge of their comfort zone and push beyond with just the twitch of their thumb or even a simple turn of their head that sets the Summit apart.

For Model Year 2020, those riders who would rather rip through the boundaries of their comfort zone than stretch them have a new choice—the 2020 Summit X with Expert Package. When it’s time to cut that really technical line, or trees start feeling really tight, this is the sled that allows a rider to redefine those comfort zones.

Based on the REV Gen4 architecture and powered by the Rotax 850 E-Tec, the ideas for many of the Expert Package’s rider-inspired features come straight from Ski-Doo’s team of Backcountry Experts and loyal hard-core consumers. The ultimate goal with a sled like this is to allow seasoned riders to continue to expand their arsenal and discover new ways to find the next hit of “That Ski-Doo Feeling.”

Returning to the Summit lineup for 2020 are the Summit X, Summit SP and Summit Sport. Riders of the X and SP will enjoy the effortless ride of the nimble REV Gen4 platform with improved running boards and the instant response of the powerful Rotax 850 E-Tec engine. SP buyers also have the choice of the highly-touted Rotax 600R E-Tec. All REV Gen4 Summit sleds also have the option of adding Ski-Doo’s exclusive SHOT battery-less push-button starter system—one of the most highly sought options available in the industry today.

The Summit Sport returns for 2020 offering more budget-conscious riders a fully capable sled at a wallet-friendly price point. It’s rigid REV-XP chassis and strong, dependable Rotax 600 Carb engine creates a sled that’s easy to maneuver with plenty of power keeping them firmly in the deep-snow game.

As deep snow sleds continue to grow more popular in lower elevations, Ski-Doo is again offering two calibrations for the drive train on Summit X and the new Expert Package; one for high altitude, above 4000 feet, and a sea level calibration for those who ride below 4000 feet.
