Backyard snowboarding

I know that theres probly some threads on this already but i couldnt find any. I live in maryland and right now we have about 3 inches with 6 comming tonight and i heard two feet this weekend but i doubt were going to get that much. What are some of the best things to jib on that are pretty easy to come by? I have a 10 ft pvc rail from back when i rollerbladed but thats it. Anybody have some cool ideas?

i have been making a park in my backyard for years now.
now i have a bunch of rails and stuff built for my hill but when i started. it was a couple PVC rails and snow jumps.

i made a box out of an old picnic bench so you could find stuff like that.
i have even used trees. if you have a sturdy tree limb or something you can set up a tree jib any way you want.
get creative! and it should be fun

Hey nitro boarder I noticed you didnt have any rails on that box...what is the top sheet?

I have 1/4 UHMW on my box right now but the side rails are rusted beyond repair and I was going to replace them with some good 2" pipe but if it will work without it I'll just build a new box without them. Did you bevel the edges of your top sheet? and do your edges catch on it a lot? Def a sick set up!!!

ya i skipped the copping i dont really seem to need it. i think resorts use it more to protect their boxes than anything. since i dont have a million people hitting my boxes they stand up just fine without it.
i have HDPE and no i havn't caught in over a year on my box because i beveled the edges
