For now I am just going to have a jump.

One good thing is cross county skiers use it and pack it down more, yay!

large dogs with horns sewn on their heads. That'll detract any would be trackers of snow away!

Say NO to GMO!

Otherwise, you should look into making a little tow rope if you really want to be serious about it. heck maybe even some snowmaking.

Talking about $2k though for the rope, the motor and gearbox, the pulleys and the hold downs, and then for the compressor and pressure washer to put it all together to have a 1-2 person lift and snowmaking. Snowmakers are loud also and being in Greensburg, they do have sound ordinances if you are in the town proper. Heck may even need a permit to do what you are doing. Now if you are out in the country a bit. No one is going to give a damn or I should say, it's to be expected to see ATV's running around. Just wear orange on your helmet though. The locals might mistake a fast moving brown object as a dear!
Yeah we can definitely get away with an ATV where I live. One side of the yard is a golf hole at a course I work at, and the other side is a neighbor that used to have an ATV. I'm not doing shit for new years eve so if you want to get some jumps and jibs in let me know.
