2018 Ski-Doo Skandic WT 550F


Designed from the start as a work sled, the Skandic WT snowmobile delivers exceptional off-trail performance, fuel efficiency, capability and towing capacity


  • SC-5U REAR SUSPENSION: Our sport-utility suspension. Refined ride both on trail and on top of powder. Articulated rail to maximize deep snow traction in reverse or locked out when towing.
  • REV-XU PLATFORM: This base architecture and design sets the standard for light weight, durability and handling. Flexible riding position enables comfort sitting and standing. Driver can stretch their legs due to forward foot position. Cab and bottom pan shapes are optimized for flotation and snow flow. Styling is rugged and dynamic.
  • LTS FRONT SUSPENSION: Industry-exclusive telescopic front suspension enables a large, flat belly pan for exceptional deep snow flotation.
  • 20 x 154 x 1.5 TRACK: Very long (154 in./391 cm) and very wide (20 in./51 cm) for added traction on trail and flotation off.
  • SYNCHROMESH TRANSMISSION: Take off from a stop smoothly, even with a heavy load, thanks to two forward and one reverse gears. Inline 2-1-N-R pattern on right side and can be safely shifted from High to Low while on the fly.
  • PILOT DS 2 SKIS: Single-keel with excellent sidehilling bite, thanks to thin outer edges. Narrow and thin, yet stiff. Shorter behind its complementary spindle with flat tail for easier counter-steering and sidehilling.
