New winter activity: Couch skiing

SALT LAKE CITY. -- Skouching has become a new word and an exciting new winter activity.

A group of friends in Salt Lake City Utah got bored with traditional skiing one year so they thought of something new.

They decided to strap a set of skis onto the bottom of a couch and slide down the hills in style.

There are not many rules to the new sport but "safety" is their first priority.

"We usually put about five people on a couch--on a run--enough to push it up the hill--but our max has been about 20," said skouch-er.

It is not just couches either; they have also added armchairs to the mix.
