Backyard boarding?

So what types of things can you do to your backyard in order to turn it into a haven until you can hit the slopes? I'll have my own board and hope to be doing this this winter and next summer on.

A friend and I built a box, and we have a mini drop-in in my backyard. Suits us well, and we even use it in summer. Fun stuff.

life IS good.

We built this out the back of our hostel...

YouTube - Roof Kicker

Needed a longer distance from the drop in to the kicker bit to set up though.

trampolines are hella fun, I'm sure it helps with tricks, but I wouldn't know since I'm too pussy to try any of the backflip, rodeo shit I did on the tramp on the mountain. worked well for my brother tho.

we also did the off the roof thing, really easy. my house is on a hill, so I'll be tossing together a 2x4 rail sometime soon.

Cool Spaking of backyard!!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have got to check this out. I said a few times in the past how I found a company online to make snow before it comes from the sky, to help me practice in the yard. Well I contacted them a few times over the summer and was able to come up with the perfect set up for my house. Iím stoked! Iím already on my board and jibbing in my backyard! I made snow 2xís this week already, the temperatures are already cold enough to make snow, can you believe it. The ski resorts are up and running in our area, and they normally arenít ready until December. But with this snowmaker, I have my own ski resort, and backyard terrain park. By the time the ball really gets rolling, Iíll be ready for the slopes. Iím coming out full force this year! Here are links to 2 of the U-Tube videos from the company Iím dealing with. I donít want to sound like an advertisement, but these people were great, and if I was offered the chance to perform in their new rail jamÖ Iíd jump at it! There are tons of videos from them, and they have their rail jam also on the site and on u-tube.
YouTube - SNOWatHOME's ultimate winter lifestyle
YouTube - DC Mtn Lab 1.5 rare behind the scenes footage
Iíll update more when I really get things on a roll. But again, no better way to practice, I donít know what I ever did without it!. Now my parents and neighbors want to borrow it for Holiday decorating and making snow in their yards. WOW the attention Iím attracting!! Iím stoked. My yard is fenced in, but everyone seems to see the snow flying around above the fence line! I canít say enough about it. Iíll update soon. I want to post on U-Tube myself, but I would rather be the boarder, not the one holding the camera!! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
