hahahaaa the ramp looks awesome.

hopefully when / if it collapses, it will be funny as hell without living up to its name!

we'll see how sturdy the construction is once the timber has been soaking up, warping and expanding in soggy turf and snow / rain / sleet / human vomit.....

at least you have a couch for recuperation!

few pics from a few weekends ago, nothing amazing.







Worked extremely well, jump was the perfect height for the rails and the ramp provided very good speed, could do 3's and someone did a 5, all be it a very unstylish 5 on skis.

When the 'snow' was half melted... to show our makeshift jump (to lazy to really build one (plywood/couch/wood under ply to stop it bending))



and as you can see we used a door at the end of the ramp to make it run out smooth

We had heaps on it at first, you couldn't see the ramp for the first five hours... that was taken about 7 hours after we started.
Yeah micheal the couch sure does work wonders
