Yooper Luge practice in Houghton

If you have a cardboard box and a roll of duct tape…then you might want to build a sled and head into Houghton this weekend. A massive snow slide has been built on Isle Royale Street in Downtown Houghton for this year’s Yooper Luge.

Participants can make their sled using a variety of household materials…just not wood…metal…fiberglass…or aluminum. Then they slide down this hill…competing in all age categories.

But building the sled is half the fun. Practice is tonight from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. Registration starts at 2:00 tomorrow and the races begin at 3:00 followed by open sledding.

Prizes will be awarded for Best Decorated…Most Creative Design…and Most Spectacular Wipeout.
