Metal will work as long as it remains below freezing.

Sheetmetal works well but it rusts easily from being scraped. If you get some galvanized then you should be all set. I used it on my first box a few years ago and it worked for us. But def not as well as the UHMW poly

Only on high end snowboards and skis. It is expensive but it lasts forever and is so good to slide on. I paid $230 for a 4x10 .25in sheet. I had them cut it in half too so that added to the handling charge so you might be able to get it a little cheaper if you cut it yourself. It was in the summer of 07 too so the price of plastic may have come down some. I know the price of steel has a bit since then, last i checked.

ask your home depo or a local plastics factory to ordor some polyethlene. I know the guy that owns a plastics place where i live and he just ordered it for me. I havnt got the chance to build one this year but i built one last year and it was ok. Not as good as a park but it worked fine.
