Default What would you do with this? Backyard powfest.

[IMG][/IMG]


Since I won't get out I thought I could conjure up a little fun, not sure if the pic distorts proportions but its a pretty high point up in the top left corner.

I would say...25 ft, with a decent slope lol...

Building a ramp tips?

A video will follow if it's a success!

Ramp, maybe a fold out table for a nice jib. Lots of nice real estate to work with there. That a retaining wall or a crap ton of fire wood?

I would absolutely build a jump and maybe a couple of low rails/boxes.

Must be nice to have actual snow...

Its a pretty massive wall actually, I estimate a 10ft drop if not more at its highest. I tried a few runs down it will post that in a few to give more perspective, theres a specific spot I wanna build a little ramp.


Donut...we got hammered lol all day then stopped now and its gonna continue all night.

Is the snow really that bad out there or are you just being a spoiled west coaster?
