Default How to make groomed trails?

Does anybody have any method for packing snow really tight to get the snow fast like the resort groomers. Just thinking it would make backyard parks a whole lot easier. We always build jumps in fields and it's a pain making a path.

Can't be much harder than packing dirt for bike jumps.. Shovels and a bit of muscle

that should just about do it for you

jk, the easiest way i think would be to build your set up, then at night salt it or water it and let it freeze so its more hard packed base and doesent get wrecked after a few landings. If you wanted to spend the dough you could get a park rake...

You could get a board of wood about 4 feet long and a foot wide, attach some rope to each end (length wise) and kind of do what they do to make crop circles by stepping on it lifting it up and then stepping on it. Don't know if that completely makes sense? haha

obviously the bigger the piece of wood, the bigger the path.

1. Use a lot of snow
2. Walk along the path with a flat scoop snowshovel and use the back-end to beat the path down continuously.
3. Get a bunch of homies and just start walking back and forth along the trail, you're weight will compact it. Come back afterwards and smooth it with shovels.
