Las Vegas, NV (CNN) — Ice and Las Vegas don't usually go hand-in-hand, but it's all changing this weekend with the Continental Cup of Curling.
The top curling teams from around the world will compete in the event. Nine of the twelve teams will be going to Sochi, Russia for the Winter Olympics after this contest.
This is the first Continental Cup ever held outside of Canada.
