Weekend getaway: Crystal Mountain Schlittentag

What: Crystal Mountain's annual dummy downhill is no more. This year, the dummies will be replaced with you. In a dummy downhill, competitors make an unmanned contraption to sled down the hill. This year, Red Bull is sponsoring the Schlittentag (German for sledding day), a similar competition with the notable exception that one of the three team members must pilot the sled. Winners are judged on speed, craftsmanship and style, but mostly style.
