Why Can’t Boston Have Nice Things?

From my co-worker, WBUR’s David Kenney, who experienced this himself on a trip to Norway:

The run takes about 10 minutes total. At the bottom there is a T station where you jump on a train that takes you back to the top — to go again.

The toboggan run is only 25 minutes by T from downtown Oslo.

Someone else captured the experience on video (note, there is a cuss word at the end):

Maybe they could close Beacon Street on snow days for sledding?
