Considering Minnesota isn't blessed with the tallest of peaks, avid skiers have to find opportunities to shred some powder wherever they can.

Take this Amish man, for example, who was captured on video near Harmony, Minnesota, skiing while being pulled by a horse-drawn buggy.

The video was taken by Iowa's Jennifer Staggemeyer, who shared it with local media earlier this week.

On Wednesday, it became a national talker when it was picked by CBS News, which featured it on its social media channels.

Speaking to KWWL, Staggemeyer said she initially thought the man was stuck in a ditch when she saw him up ahead on the road, before taking her phone out to get the viral footage.

"We were hoping he had a spotter because what if he wiped out? No one would know!” she said.
