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.
