Engine case oil change

Hello all, writing this from the great state of Montana where the powder is deep and the mountains are steep.
I use my 91 polaris indy trail for a fair amount of the season towing myself or one of my buddies into the local mountains for skiing and the little sled is pretty amazing. . I would like to keep it that way, so after 2 long seasons I need to change the case oil on my motor and my chain case.

I have figured out through reading through countless posts on here (which I have thoroughly enjoyed; theres some real characters on here ) that the chain case oil is simple enough. . But I'm at a loss on how to change oil in case of motor. I have seen no obvious drain or fill locations and wonder if they may be located behind my primary clutch.

I own 2 stroke motorcycles and 4 strokes and change the clutch/tranny/case oils often but never have on my sled and this has me feeling terribly guilty!

Could someone give me some wise words on this procedure, or let me know that its a sealed case or something that I've never heard of like that. . Thanks to all who read.

There is no oil to change in the Indy Trail crankcase- 2 stroke snowmobiles don't have crankcase oil.

They all start turning to junk as soon as you pull the rope...

Just add 2 stroke oil to the oil bottle when it gets low! No oil to change like stated above. It mixes with the fuel and burns.
