Skiing in the Parking Garage

What do you do if you’re part of an Olympic ski team that needs a tunnel to practice in during the summer? You find a refrigerated parking garage, of course.

Believe it or not, such a thing exists and the U.S. Nordic combined team really did practice there before this year’s Olympic games.

Solution: Build a refrigerated garage and truck in snow so skiers can practice on its ramps.

Really. We swear.
