Ice Sailing in Norway - Brrr!

Here in the seaboard states of the Mid Atlantic of the U.S, we generally don't see winter until after the New Year and even then, extended cold spells below freezing rarely last longer than a week. This video looks to be shot in Norway, above the Arctic circle, where blizzards and frozen lakes are normal before Christmas. The video starts out with a blizzard and then features a home brew sled/sail contraption. The video is beautifully shot. You feel the desolation of the Far North winters .... and nothing beats the fun that a simply constructed sailing sled can bring on a short winter day (real short in Norway!).
