Youth snowmobiles are made especially for children. Manufacturers that make youth snowmobiles list the suggested sizes based on the child's height and weight, as opposed to her age. These snowmobiles typically have basic features including single-cylinder motors and four strokes.
Other manufacturers make snowmobiles for children that are referred to as entry-level snowmobiles. Entry level snowmobiles are made for anyone that is a beginner to the activity. Like the youth snowmobiles, the manufacturer describes appropriate height for each model specifically. Entry-level snowmobiles are good for children because they tend to be smaller and have less power, while remaining easy to maneuver.
