Some friends of mine have a house in the mountains in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. In the winter they dig a luge track in the (many feet of) snow in their yard and have timed sled races to see who can make it down the fastest. They call it the Mario Cup. I went out there last week with my buddy Mario (a member at Artisan’s Asylum and the namesake of the race) and we made some improvements to the system. Details below.
