The Clean Snowmobile Challenge is a Collegiate Design Series Competition of SAE International. Engineering students from participating schools reengineer a stock snowmobile to reduce emissions and noise while increasing fuel economy—all while preserving the riding excitement demanded by snowmobile enthusiasts.

The Challenge also includes a zero-emissions category for battery-powered sleds used in a scientific mission. Another category employs a diesel engine for snowmobiles used in a more utility work profile.

The Challenge is held annually at Michigan Tech's Keweenaw Research Center.
