What would you do with this hill?

Sup guys, I have this hill in my backyard that I always thought would be decent for snowboarding but have never done it in the past. What do you think I should build at the bottom of it this winter?

Looking down and the clearing at the bottom

Pics can be deceiving, but it doesn't look steep at all.

Parking spot for the ambulance and a triage area.

LOL probably right on that one. Yeah I guess it isn't that steep I was just hoping some little shit to set up and get used to doing some boardslides or small kickers or something at night when i'm bored, since I haven't been in about 2 years

If it's no steeper than it looks, you're not going to be able to get up enough speed to do shit.

Hmm.. maybe I need more pics. Are you basing it mostly off of the 2nd picture? Most of the hill in that pic is hidden by the trees. I could loop my little 50 easily if I lean back a little as I'm going up it. It curves up much steeper than what you see in that 2nd pic. When I was little I used to sled down it and have a pretty good time. Maybe I'll take some more pics or just wait for the snow to fall

What is the slope angle of that? If it is around 30 degrees it should be fine. If it's less than that, it may or may not work. Under 20 degrees, you can probably forget it.

Some rails if its steep enough. Easy to build and you can re use them each winter. Maybe a box if you have skills to make one. (not hard at all)

Trees are generally vertical. You can give a better idea by going to the steep part of the hill,turning 90 degrees to the slope, and snap the trees with ground in the picture.

Well you could just shovel a whole pack of snow and make yourself a speed ramp. That's what I do in my backyard and mine's flat as shit lol. Get an electric snowblower and you can make some pretty wicked stuff.
