Video: Open Ice in Bozeman, Montana

We all have our own ways of dealing with winter. Some of us embrace it, layering up with clothes and gear to keep us warm while continuing to pursue our favorite activities. Others hole up inside and patiently wait for spring to arrive. In the case of Pete Sveen, who lives near Bozeman, Montana he goes with the former. In the video above you’ll catch a glimpse of how Pete makes it through the long winters. To do so, he builds his own private outdoor hockey rink, preferring to go for a skate or shoot some pucks around rather than staying inside all season long. While this may be different from how we approach the season, there is no doubt that it looks like a lot of fun.
