Curling is watched by many during the Winter Olympics in the United States, but in Canada, it’s one of the most popular sports.
The WFG Continental Cup hit Las Vegas this week and it begged the question: How do they do it? From the textured ice to the brooms to the 40-pound stones, we wanted to find out.

The Continental Cup runs through Sunday at The Orleans.
