Karl Meltzer is one of the top ultra runners in the world. He routinely runs 50+ miles and has won the Wasatch 100 race a number of times in the last 15 years. Karl just missed breaking the fastest time ever on the Appalachian Trail a couple summers ago. So what does Karl do in the Winter when the mountains that he normally runs in are filled with snow? He builds a super sick sledding track/luge run with his friends and sessions it of course.

The Wasatch Backcountry Luge | Sickest Sled Ride Around

Karl Meltzer is one of the top ultra runners in the world. He routinely runs 50+ miles and has won the Wasatch 100 race a number of times in the last 15 years. Karl just missed breaking the fastest time ever on the Appalachian Trail a couple summers ago. So what does Karl do in the Winter when the mountains that he normally runs in are filled with snow?  He builds a super sick sledding track/luge run with his friends and sessions it of course. Nice work Karl, this thing looks fun as hell!

Handmade sledding luge in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. It takes a good effort and many hours to maintain the track. The creator, Karl Meltzer uses it as off-season training for his typical Ultrarunning career. Many friends and some strangers have helped work on and have enjoyed this track. Stay safe and have fun.
