Default Chicago area rail help

Hey everyone...I'm looking to build a jib or box setup and wondered if anyone knew of a local place to be able to use, whether it be a park, backyard or whatever. Sorta new to the whole rail thing but have been snowboarding for 15+ years and I'm looking to be able to head somewhere where you can just ride for a couple hours without having to worry about spending 50+ on lift tix and wait behind the hundreds of kids standing at the top of the park at the local places wondering when/what they are gonna hit. Doesn't have to be IN Chicago, any of the burbs, Southeast WI, Northwest IN or Southwest MI will work.

Old thread revisited:

Where do you ride? Tyrol Basin near Madison WI has great park, Alpine Valley is hopefully addding some more basic/begginer type features. I'm also trying to learn rails, much more comfortable on a box though. Not as much pain when tricks go bad
Have you considered a banshee bungee and a pvc pipe for your rail. You could do it in your backyard with minimal effort plus pretty easy to transport to a friends house, park, or local sledding hill
