Off-Road Skateboard...With Tank Treads!

The Vertrax skateboard, designed by Brian Lovett, can go where traditional boards! So when the path gets a bit hairy, the Vertrax has an advantage with it's tank-like treads and small electric motor. Lovett states that the Vertrax will work on grass, snow and even sand...
As a concept it's pretty cool....but I'm curious how exactly it will perform on snow and sand. With a narrow tread coupled with the weight of a rider, I'm thinking it might cut through the snow and sand like a chainsaw... Other than that it's a sharp design.
