Jerusalem Resident Sleds Down Stairs in Front of Damascus Gate

An adventurous person took advantage of the snow day in Jerusalem by sledding down the stairs in front of the city’s Damascus Gate, after several inches of snow fell in the region on January 27.

Local media reported that the snowfall was brought on by a polar depression, which started to impact the area early Wednesday morning.

This footage, taken by Jerusalem-based journalist Christine Rinawi, shows the sledder rocketing down the steps in the Old City, while residents enjoyed the winter spectacle by throwing snowballs and taking photos. Credit: Christine Rinawi via Storyful
