The only luge ice track in the Southern Hemisphere

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:22 pm on 10 August 2010

Racing down a track of pure ice at great rates of speed is taking off in New Zealand. Tourists and budding young lugers are making their way in large numbers to the only luge ice track in the Southern Hemisphere in Naseby in Central Otago. The track's been open for 3 seasons. About 250 people a week fly down the ice track on sleds.
