Object 994.019.001 a-c
A 1961 Bombardier snowmobile owned and used in Deline by Father Rene Fumoleau, an Oblate priest who came to the Northwest Territories in 1953. This was the first snowmobile in the Great Bear Lake area. Father Fumoleau made several modifications to the snow machine in order to keep comfortable and warm on his trips to bush camps in the winter months. He says the snowmobile did not go very fast (10-15 miles per hour) but it was reliable, and never let him down.
