Skiing for couch potatoes: skouching

Posted: Updated:

For downhill skiers who love the rush, but are too lazy to get off the sofa, there's a new way to hit the slopes: "skouching."

A group of friends in Salt Lake City say they concocted the new winter sport a few years ago while looking for something fun to do.

You just simply strap a pair of skis onto the bottom of a couch and off you go.

"We usually put five people on a run on a couch, enough to push it back up the hill. But our max, I believe, was like 20," said skoucher Nick Edwards.

You can learn more about this new winter sport on the group's Facebook page "Friends of Skouching."
