I've seen this on a couple of documentaries. Apparently, they place the potatoes on the ground and let the very low temperatures, well below freezing, dry the water out of them through the repeated freezing, before stepping on them to remove any final residual moisture. Then they are virtually devoid of any moisture. Some were then dried further for long term storage, while others were used in their soups, etc..
