Agreed, I can decide if I want to make one. Though I have a hard time with the thought of my board on anything but snow.
Yup same here though I've been considering having a co-worker weld up a pretty standard 8-10 ft shotgun rail too. But this thing would be cheaper and easier to move and I'd fix some polycarbonate to the top so it would double as a semi-legit box.
With where I'm at and my schedule I get 20 days on the hill if I'm lucky. So the last couple of years I've used an RC30 (think small skid steer w/ rubber tracks) and pushed all the snow the plow truck pushes off my long ass driveway into a kicker and landing. Then my friends and I pull each other into it with an ATV pretty much whenever. I'd set the rail/box thing next to the jump so we'd have a jib option.
