Pretty cool snowpark items

I am involved in a local snow park. It isn't that big but we have some boxes, rails and other stuff. This season we have had plenty of snow.

We are thinking about building fun "pure" snow items in the park. Like a quarter pipe or like image below (not from our park, just an image I found).

I would appreciate suggestion of items we can build from snow.
Include images, videos or a description of your favorite snow park item.

I found another kind-of-jump från Neff park i Park City.
Neff Land Park City - YouTube
From 1.00 in the video there is a jump with a little bump - I don't know the name of it but it was pretty funny to ride. A FS/BS 180 was possible on the bump before jumping of.

Last year our park had a few quarter pipes in a row but they were facing towards the center of the run on alternating sides kind of like a sectioned out half pipe, but each hit was crescent shaped like a bmx berm so there was a bit of flexibility un each run. The first hit also had a jump carved into the backside of the berm for gaining speed for subsequent hits since our park does not have a ton of pitch.

It sure does. Hopefully it will be done for the weekend.

Sounds fun, but I don't think we have room for more than one quarter pipe.

It's almost a half pipe with gaps

We do not have a ton of room either. There were three total and only like 15 feet tall.

Exactly, I have been suggesting that. The idea emerged when we were at a nearby place where the groomer left a little spine on each side of the piste where one could jump/spin/make lots of fun stuff on and off the piste.
