Are you glued to the TV screen every Winter Olympics, in awe of ski jumpers, figure skaters, and the luge? Sorry, you're not gonna find anything that graceful at the 57th annual Beaver County Snow Shovel Riding Championship. In what just might be the most ridiculous competition of all of winter sports, brave souls race down a 165' hill on snow shovels. The free event is open to all ages — drink some coffee or hot chocolate on the sidelines while watching the competition or join in on the fun for a chance to win a prize. (Just make sure you check the website before you leave: If there isn't enough snow on the hillside, the event will be postponed to the following Saturday.)
