This sport is deceptively simple but special precautions should be carefully adhered to. If you live, or are near a snowy area, with hills that go downwards (never try the upwards ones), simply grease a wok, crouch inside and give a bit of a push.

Time trials will decide the winner, and the loser may have to cook a stir fry for the others depending on culinary ability. Alternatively, a wok can be attached to each foot for slalom events.

       what a silly idea. Snow just freezes the grease, unless it's machine oil, but who need grease in snow?   

       + for the mental picture.   

       btw, I love my wok

       What noise does a woc make?   

       Oom oom.

Feel the thyme.
Add some rice,

       Would it use an expirimental lubricant that your company is working on?

       How does this differ from the very common snow saucer, except that it's made out of metal? (A very dubious advantage.)

       You cannot stir-fry in a snow saucer after wok luge. You may try, but it shall prove to be inferior.

       Given the nearly total lack of control offered by this means of locomotion, I fail to see how there can be a meaningful competition.

       "what a silly idea. Snow just freezes the grease ... " [dentworth]   

       You use wax, not grease. Same stuff you put on your sled runners or skates. I love the idea BTW.

       i'l meet you at the bottom then. don't forget the sweet and sour sauce.

       Strange, I always picture something entirely different when Australian's speak of going on wok-about.

       Haha, there used to be a video on the internet of people wokboarding. This was an activity comprised of sliding down closed escalators (the kind they have in certain places, particularly Japan, where when they are turned off, the steps rotate to make a completely smooth ramp) on woks. It was very funny. I think it is gone, but I'll look again.   

       EDIT: Found it! see link.

       I envision a luging-slaloming-cooking triathalon. I'd watch it.
