It’s a common sight after a dump of snow near university campuses across the country, but a relatively rare one here in Richmond: people hanging on to cars and skiing in the streets.
Instagram user @yvr_cw posted video that shows a skier clad in turquoise snowpants and a black jacket clutching some sort of shovel or broom tied to a rope that’s attached to a car with its hatchback rear door open.
She was driving, and her friend filmed it. They followed the skier through a left turn at the Gilbert Road and Granville Avenue intersection around 9:45 p.m.
She captioned it simply, “hey buddy, this is super dangerous … #onlyinrichmond.”
The Richmond News has reached out to @yvr_cw for comment.
There were also reports of people snowboarding through the streets in Steveston Sunday.
