This is apparently a thing up here in Kiruna. As a fake Viking pansy Dane, I was equally delighted, bemused, and apprehensive about this spectacle; the natives seemed to really enjoy it.

The track awaits.

I swear there's a race going on in there somewhere...

There they are.

We have a winner.

The younger natives seemed particularly excited about this celebratory post-race ritual.

I cannot claim to fully understand their culture, but I enjoyed this brief glimpse into the ways and customs of the north.

When you have lots of dry powdery snow, you find creative ways to use it.
