There's no need to travel hours and hours away to a mountain to get some skiing in.

Check out this dude who decided to have a little bit of fun when some snow fell in Raleigh, N.C. Yeah, he went skiing through a residential neighborhood, like he's on some sort of lazy Sunday drive. It's one way to make the best of a frosty situation.

It looks like he may have a string attached to the bumper of the car in front of him and used it direct him around the roadway while he deftly avoids falling or crashing.

The video (note some spotty NSFW language) first popped up on Reddit, where it generated a healthy amount of buzz.

This fella isn't exactly a trailblazer when it comes to creating new winter sports, though. YouTube personality Casey Neistat pulled off a similar stunt to this last winter in New York City.
