Very nice. I live somewhat near Greensburg in Rostraver. It affords me a quick trip to 7S or HV whenever needed. Now if your neighbors dont mind, the ATV might work out. Assuming you own and dont rent or the landlord wont mind the torn up turf. Otherwise, you should look into making a little tow rope if you really want to be serious about it. heck maybe even some snowmaking.

Talking about $2k though for the rope, the motor and gearbox, the pulleys and the hold downs, and then for the compressor and pressure washer to put it all together to have a 1-2 person lift and snowmaking. Snowmakers are loud also and being in Greensburg, they do have sound ordinances if you are in the town proper. Heck may even need a permit to do what you are doing. Now if you are out in the country a bit. No one is going to give a damn or I should say, it's to be expected to see ATV's running around. Just wear orange on your helmet though. The locals might mistake a fast moving brown object as a dear!
