The warm winter temperatures continued in the Minot area today.
The mild weather brought many people outdoors and some brought their sleds along for the ride.
The hill behind Magic City Campus was busy this afternoon with families riding down the slope and, of course, making the trek back up the hill.
Plenty of traditional sleds made their way down the slope; however, one Minot organization put a new spin on sledding--using cardboard boxes.
The Minot boy scouts Troop 433 continued a tradition of racing cardboard sleds designed and crafted by the boy scouts.
Scout Master Steve Pederson says the scouts have been racing box sleds for about 5 years.
He added it's a fun way to enjoy North Dakota winters.
(Steve Pederson, Minot Boy Scouts Troop 433)"In the winter time, North Dakota gets a little bit long without our outdoor activities that we do in Spring, Summer, and Fall. We try to get the boys out, teach them how to ski, teach them how to snowboard, getting them out for sledding activities."
Pederson says in years past, they've even handed out cardboard trophies for the winning team or individual.
