How does one deal with record-making snowfall over the course of a weekend? Build a mini-park for snowboarding!!!!
I went and got snowed in at Mark’s for the blizzardy weekend. Camera and snowboard in hand, ready to have some snow-tastic fun. Jesse came by saturday morning to join in on the festivities.
First we had to scope out a good spot for a ramp/drop-in. The grill will provide support right?
After a few hours of building, we ended up with a pretty respectable drop-in, about 8 feet from top to bottom, reaching about 20 feet to the ramp.
and to test out how deep the snow was, Mark volunteered to jump in
The snow was super fluffy and at least knee-deep, the wind blew some snow about waist deep in some places.
a great picture of mark that I didn’t take (thanks Jesse!)
We make a wide ramp initially and started snowboarding off it into the fresh powder, and eventually made a mound of snow and put two cornhole-boards-in-the-making on top to make a sweet box to ride (it even looks like I know what I’m doing!)
To get an idea what we built, check out the video:
