Each winter, thousands of people tour the Midway Ice Castles in Midway, Utah. This winter, visitors included professional slackliners.

A YouTube video released Tuesday by Utah videographer Devin Graham captures their tricks.

In addition to crossing the slacklines, the athletes perform flips and slackline tricks. During part of the video, the slackline is lit on fire.

Many of the athletes in the video are professional slackliners. In a behind-the-scenes video, Andy Lewis, one of the athletes, discussed some of the challenges of performing on a slackline with the ice and snow.

“The challenges about doing it in ice (are) that your feet are slippery; you get a little bit wet; (and) the snow is actually reflective, so when you’re flipping around, you get the reflections of the snow.”
