    Wyoming men ride two-person snowboard

    JACKSON, Wyo. - Everyone's heard of a bicycle built for two, but how about a two-person snowboard? Butch Brady built one and recently teamed up with another snowboarder, Eric Sweet, to make some two-man turns down the Teewinot run at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort.

    They did it for a television crew and the Guinness Book of World Records.

    "It seemed initially like going down a mountain in a canoe without a paddle, but after taking a few runs, a light went on," Sweet said. "You're splitting the duties, so it feels like a marriage. You give up half of the control, and if it's a good one you don't crash."

    The snowboard, called the "XJ-13," is 9 feet, 7 inches long.

    Brady works at a snowboard shop. He and his boss, Brian Wood, linked two snowboards lengthwise, bolting the rear board on top of the front board.

    With practice
