It's Snowmowagon!

Do you live in the extreme north and regularly find yourself snowed-in with an extreme case of cabin fever.  Have a little RWD car that just doesn’t get around good in the snow?  Hooniverse has the solution!

Ok, so it does look a little goofy and a lot redneck-y but seeing the thing in action makes up for it.  It looks hella fun!
It appears to be some sort of kit you can buy and mount your RWD car to.  That’s about all I know as I could find very little information since the creators site is in Russian and clicking the English link reveals a phone number and a single mysterious sentence: Equipment for transforming an ordinary car to cool snowmobile or SnowFootCar during 1 hour. 
It appears to be nothing more than a trailer frame with a ski and super-large tires.  Simplicity FTW!

    Google translation of the site:
    The device is designed to convert conventional vehicles to snowmobile. In a conventional car placed from 5 to 7 persons, who may walk on virgin snow with the comfort and warmth.
    Time conversion of conventional vehicles in snowmobile takes 1 hour, while in the car no change in the future it can be used as a normal car on public roads.
    The device has high reliability due to its simplicity.
    Advantages over conventional snowmobile:
    1. Comfortable conditions
    2. Lower fuel
    3. Number of passengers to 7 (depending on the brand of car)
    Used low-pressure tires.

    There are no words for something this awesome. But there is one question…How well does it jump off a ramp?

    In Soviet Russia, snowmobile transports car!
    Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I want that. I'd be just as happy with a stock(ish) Signet wagon, but I'd be the envy of my little redneck town with something like this. Bonus points if I'm rocking a ragged V6 Camaro/Mustang or a full-sized domestic truck (probably a Dodge Ram, but any would do) with Calvin showing the world what brand of truck I just don't care for.

      The trike makes me wonder what they were thinking, but this thing looks like a Geo Metro landed on a Unimog. He must be using some super tall gears for this thing.

    I'm pretty sure it says:
    "I am the prince of Nigeria. Your long lost cousin died and left you an enormous fortune. In order to claim your inheritance, you need to wire $2000 dollars to Once you do you will receive your full inheritance, plus interest from the South American government. I will meet you in the afterlife and congratulate you whole-heartedly as a king of Zion."
    Looks like I can't lose!

    Lada? Trailer frame? Tractor tires? Chains? Sprockets welded to the rear brake drums?
    I see no issues with this design. As a licensed Professional Engineer, I would gladly stamp those drawings.

      No kidding. My first impression was of the Apollo program. "Command module separation in t minus 4….3….2…."

    Well, Soviet car industry never came even near the production capacity "market" required and it never produced anything suitable for frozen lakes, which are everywhere in former SU during harsh winters. Only thing they made for winter use was god-awful "Buran", POS ancient crappy snowmobile wannabe. And even this was not available for purchase. Fishermen then got inventive and created those "monsters". Usually these are based on UAZ frame (soviet Jeep if you will), with four wheel drive, newer ones have GPS and hydraulic ice drills even. No need to go out to cold much, one needs some vodka and snacks and can spend whole day away from home & wife (which is the most important reason for fishing to these guys).

    Jo needs one of these to navigate the frozen Utah Tundra. Call it the Schmomowagen.
