Default Backyard Box & Rail Topsheet?

Hey! I'm new here.

Recently I've decided that this summer I'd like to pull together a drop in, a box, a rail, and then in the winter I'm going to build a small jump, so that I can learn some tricks, as I can't make it to the slope that often. (I may get a season pass to a local hill on sundays, but I really want to build this...)

Anyway, I've been looking for a topsheet that is CHEAP. I looked at Trex at lowes, but I could not find what people call "Untextured Trex." I found PVC board though, and it looks really good. It's really cheap also, and they make it in narrower sizes so it can basically mimic a metal rail that you would find at a real park.

Is this a good material to use?

Also, I found what I am talking about on Lowes' website. It's called PVC Trim Board, this is what it is, but forget about the size, this is the material. http://www.lowes.com/pd_238343-99999...rim%2Bboard%2B

Fyi, I ended up just putting together a box with plastic composite (Trex-but-not-Trex) on the top, and it's worked pretty well, but I haven't been able to get good speed into it with the lack of natural snow in the East.

Could you post pictures? I'm interested in making a turf setup come summer time.

I too am very interested in creating some back yard features. Not just old sleds upside down with snow packed
