We are thrilled to share the exciting news of our groundbreaking partnership with Alterra Mountain Company, marking a significant stride in our joint commitment to advancing sustainable practices in winter activities.

“We know the impacts of climate change are threatening the mountain lifestyle and activities we love,” said Darcie Renn, VP of Sustainability at Alterra Mountain Company. “That’s why we’re committed to efforts to protect the mountains for generations to come. Transitioning some of our snowmobile fleet to Taiga’s electric snowmobiles was a great choice for us to expand our on-mountain EV fleet and propel us forward in our ambitious carbon reduction journey.”

Nomad snowmobiles go beyond transportation; they symbolize a dedication to elevating on-mountain operations and contributing to reducing emissions – but doing so while lowering operating costs and delivering uncompromising performance for fleet partners around the world. After rigorous testing across 15 iconic mountain destinations, we’re proud to continue supporting Alterra in their lower-carbon mission.

Nomad is the world’s first fully electric mass-produced snowmobile, defining the standards for an electric sport-utility sled. With silent and emissions-free operation, they are ideal for environmentally conscious mountain operators and ski resorts.

Equipped with a maintenance-free, fuel-free, and oil-free powertrain, Nomad offers excellent long-term efficiency. With a range of up to 100 km and an impressive towing capacity of 511 kg (1,125 lb), it stands out as the essential tool for demanding winter tasks.

“We’ve been using our Nomad snowmobile for three months and have put it through its paces across the mountain,” says Éric Gadoua, Mountain Operations Director at Tremblant, an Alterra Mountain Company destination. “While our guests have been loving their odorless and quiet ride, our operations team is equally impressed with their performance and reliability.”
