A travel ban was ordered in New York City on Saturday, meaning the streets were practically deserted–especially compared to the usual traffic.

A lot of people stayed inside, but others took advantage of the unique opportunity and had some fun in the snow.

Snowboarder Casey Neistat took things to another level when he got some friends to drive a vehicle and pull him around.

Neistat is also popular on YouTube, and was wearing a jacket with the company’s logo emblazoned on it.
