The city of Raleigh, North Carolina, got just an inch or two of snow as much of the eastern U.S. faced down a blizzard this weekend. Not enough to make a proper snowman, perhaps, or even sled on—but street skiing is another matter.

Filming from a car with a chill soundtrack ideal for the unusual winter sport (which really ought to be an Olympic event, by the way), some Raleigh residents gave us great coverage of a talented skier as he was towed through the slushy streets by another vehicle. Although they start out waiting for him to crash, and it does sometimes seem he's about to, they're ultimately just impressed with his poise, balance, and sheer control. Somebody has been practicing.
