Dana Schmieg and his kids won't have to go to Sochi, Russia to enjoy sliding down a luge.

According to AOL, Schmieg built a homemade luge course out of snow in the backyard of his Cologne, Minn. home (video below).

“Underneath the big hill there in the corner is a garden, and we had to keep the kids out of the garden,” Schmieg told KARE/CNN. “So we had to make a little corner so they wouldn’t go in the garden, and it just snowballed from there.”

Apparently this tradition began years ago, and has made Schmieg the "coolest dad' in the neighborhood, notes KTNV.
