COLOGNE, Minn. - It's a magnet for kids and adults alike.

The backyard of the Schmieg's in Cologne has become quite a popular spot for some serious sledding.

Dana Schmieg spent several hours shoveling the track and building up the walls. What started with a rather tame concept clearly snowballed into something much bigger, with a track that spans about 150 yards and a ride that lasts about 45 seconds long.

And for what it's worth, KARE 11 has certified the track as "Perk approved."
