Ski-Slope Ambulances
The Capsular Rescue Snowmobile Incorporates a Compartment for a Stretcher

Looking a little bit like a helicopter without a propeller, the Rescue Snowmobile is a cutting-edge concept for a mountain-ready ambulance. Given the high incidence of injury while skiing and snowboarding and the great difficulty that paramedics have in reaching the wounded, this extreme-terrain automobile would be a valuable piece of equipment to have close to the slopes.

Designed by Lange & Lange, the emergency vehicle has a compact and encapsulated cabin that can can accommodate two people. The projecting rear of the skidoo is a tight compartment that’s generous enough in size to fit a flat stretcher with a person lying on top of it. A railed ramp facilitates the loading of the victim inside the Rescue Snowmobile, and blades and a tank-like track mechanism allow it to travel safely over snow and ice.
