I love when plans work out for a spontaneous adventure. My friend was already coming to town, so I just offered her  the "choose your own adventure" option for her visit.  Try the luge, cross country skiing or attend an ice sculpture festival.  I was sooo excited that she wanted to try the luge too.  The weekend we went was the first time the track had been open all winter due to lack of snow.  This was a Christmas gift I've been impatiently waiting to use.

I had tried the wheeled luge with my kids this past summer and I knew I wanted to come back to try the winter one.

It looked scarier and went faster.

The winter track reaches speeds up to 30mph where the summer track reaches speeds up to 23mph.  This also gave me a bit of an advantage because I knew a little bit of what to expect which took the edge of my fears.

We arrived at the park a day after a pretty big snowfall.

The roads were less dicey and the trees were beautiful with their branches weighed down from heavy snow.  We were still cutting it close time wise when we arrived.  We immediately signed away our life, showed that we had proof of insurance and were on our way to join the clinic.

Our clinic was filled with a troop of boy scouts who had camped all weekend. Kudos to them but NO THANKS!

Our instructors showed us how to ride the sled and how to stop.
