Minnesota college student and hockey player, Cole Meyer, built his very own "crushed ice course" in his parents' backyard in 2014.
(CNN)-- When you can't go to the Olympics, let the Olympics come to you!
A Minnesota college student and hockey player built his very own "crushed ice course" in his parents' backyard.
Cole Meyer sprayed water on this snowy hillside several times a day for two weeks, until it was just right, and now he's showing off his slick moves on the frozen ramps and slopes.
But make no mistake, his track is not for amateurs...
"It was tough getting used to if you're used to skating on flat ice," said Meyer. "...but going down hill, hitting jumps is a little tough..."
Meyer said he was inspired to build the track after seeing the "red bull crashed ice" stunt course in Saint Paul.
He tried out for the upcoming events there, but Meyer says he hasn't been told yet whether he qualified for the competition later this month.
