I'M IMPRESSED! I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE WORKING ON NEXT SEASON! I'M JUST WONDERING WHAT EVERYONE IS DOING NOW TO GET READY FOR THE SEASON? I'VE BEEN DOING THE TRAMPOLINE, WATER SKIING, AND EVEN SANDBOARDING, (WHICH I MIGHT ADD SUCKS IN NE, UT AT LEAST I'M NOT GETTING HURT) I'm really looking into something that I saw on U-Tube. The SG5 snow maker, I want to say it's from snowathome? not sure though. I'm seeing it every where. It's like making a back yard terrain park. COOL! Something to make snow to cover everything before nature comes along, and that way I was thinking I could have it all down before I look like a clutsy snow biff in the public eye. LOL My question to everyone is... have you seen or heard anything about this? Does anyone have one that they can explain more about it? It looks simple enough to set up, and heck, it makes snow for me and only me in my backyard, and I can practice, I'm looking forward to anyones opinions. Don't want to waste money. Let me know what you think. Email me, or post, I'm really interested in the extra practice at home.
