Do you live in a state with lots of snow and really cold weather but you have no where to ski? (like Minnesota) Or you just don't feel like spending 20+ bucks to go ski somewhere and you just want to stay home. Then this instructable is for you on how to make a ski resort in your own backyard! Coming soon (hopefully): A box and rail instructable.
Step 1: Materials
This is the fun part where you get to shovel 2 tons of snow.
-Snow (and lots of it, helps when you get a record snowfall)
-Shovels (a small one and a big scooping shovel)
-Cold weather (-1 helps)
-Two friends to help you
-Wood (to help in the making process)
-Time (took me and my friends 2 whole days)
-Lights (for working at night)
-Ladder (to get on your roof)
-Common sense (since you'll be working mainly on top of your roof a you'll be skiing off a jump)
Step 2: Preperations
Start by finding a decent spot to build your ramp and make sure you have plenty of room in your back or front yard (about 50+ feet). Once you know where you'll have your ramp take a big piece of ply wood and stick it behind where all your snow will be so doesn't pile up against your house. Then climb up on your roof and start shoveling that snow (this is where you need that big shovel). At first dump it in a pile and continue pileing it up to the edge of your roof (this is where 2 days and 2 friends come in handy).
