The Snow Cat (the new version known as the Snow Trekker), is seen in Club Penguin inside a bottle which is found in the Lighthouse online. The Snow Cat was originally from Experimental Penguins, where it would be seen towards the bottom left corner of the Crash Site room. Developers were also able to ride Snow Cats. It later would be seen in Penguin Chat 3, where certain players could ride it in the Construction Site while wearing a hard hat.
In 2006, when the Lighthouse opened, a miniature version of the Snow Cat was put in the bottle inside the Lighthouse. A penguin-sized Snow Cat was seen during the Music Jam 2008 at the Pizza Parlor crashed through the wall. The same Snow Cat returned at the Music Jam 2009. In the Elite Penguin Force game, there is a mini game which involves a vehicle similar to the Snow Cat called the "Snow Trekker". The Snow Cat was never driven once on the online Club Penguin. In Elite Penguin Force, an EPF Agent can summon the Snow Trekker by using a tool that is built into their Spy Gadget.
According to a blog entry, it was included in the very first catalog, but was listed as sold out. The Snow Trekker has been made into a toy, including a small Gary figure and attachments for the boat and snow plow.

- In the game Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force, your penguin says in response to Gary's Snow Trekker, "Wow, I thought those things had vanished off the face of the island!", proving that Experimental Penguins-Penguin Chat 3 took place on Club Penguin, which means Gary or one of his ancestors may have invented the original Snow Cat.
