Bare Tobogganing

BRAUNLAGE, GERMANY (CBS) - For the second year in a row, Germans have decided to dare the cold, snowy weather and bare all in the name of sports and entertainment.

In the Harz Mountains, near Braunlage, 30 contestants, 15 men and 15 women were selected to strip down to their shorts and Toboggan down the snowy ski slope.

The contestants were only permitted to wear shoes and underwear to cover the lower part of their bodies.

Apart from protective hand gear and a helmet, nothing was allowed above the waist.

One elderly contestant ended the race in individual style, tipping himself over and skiing the last metre on his bare back.
