Everyone knows that horrible winter weather is actually really awesome if you’re a kid. (Think sledding, snowman building, school cancellations and not having to worry about digging your car out of the snow.)

But one dad in New Jersey made winter even better for his young children by constructing a homemade high-speed sledding track. It’s pretty simple — and not quite as elaborate as the Olympics-themed backyard luge track one dad made last year — but it’s still awesome and his kids seem pretty into it.

He’s not like a regular dad, he’s a cool dad.
