Ramp idea????`

Ok,
this is more for next year, but here it is. Any thoughts as to if this would work, bad idea, good training tool, etc???

We have a very nice sledding hill with many runs. I thought to bring my kids skateboard ramp to pack with snow and practice.



Good idea??? Bad idea???

In my experiences, them being plastic makes you slide out a lot if you hop off even the slitest edge. Why not just build one that size out of snow?

I guess ease?

I was thinking of packing snow on this jump. Not sure if that would work or not

To practice straight airs, and maybe my 180's, but your still correct even with snow on it not sure I could dig an edge into it to try a 180. This was just a thought

i'm thinking leave it home - for the following:

a pile of snow that big takes about 2 minutes to push together - and you will be able to shape it better, that has too much kick/is too small

if you use that you have to break down the jump no matter what when you leave

it probably will push out easily when you hit it

in this fucked up world of litigation we live in today if you were in a public park and someone else's kid hits the jump and gets hurt, you could be held liable as the owner and dude who brought the jump to the park - just a thought.



easier to just carry a shovel

you could like screw some little wood strips that run across width of the ramp into the ramp that will hold the snow better. the ramp would not hold snow on it btw

Depends on how much snow there is. If there is a few inches bring the ramp, a few feet bring a shovel.
I used to ride on a skate ramp similar to that one on a hill with just enough snow to cover the ground, it was fun times.
