WASHINGTON -- With white blanketing the region, what can you do with all that snow?

For a Minnesota family, snow and creativity sparked the idea to build a luge in their backyard.

The dad took on the initiative to shape the sledding hill after trying to keep the children out of the garden.

As noted in the video below, USA Olympic bobsledder Tucker West's dad also built him a luge as a child.

Who knows, this dad's spontaneous idea could be the reason these children help USA move from fifth to first place in luge by the next Olympic Games.
