Backyard Ice Luge

February 1, 2009 12:00:00 AM PST
It isn't your ordinary backyard. John builds a homemade ice luge each winter. He started small seven years ago, but he expands the project each year. Now, with the help of his family and Mother Nature, his ice luge is over two stories tall.

The luge is a continual work in progress. This year its 22 feet high, the run is 200 feet long and this year it's bigger than ever. It's fun for everyone, the kids, the neighbors, and even dad!

All the kids were very brave. They went down like it was nothing.

As for next winter, he plans to make two longer slides. If Mother Nature cooperates you can be sure it'll be taller too!
