    Nice. Could you show how you built it? An 'ible would be nice.

    I'm in Seattle and we are currently dominated by the snow. I tried it on snow but it was pretty powdery and the hovercrafts kept getting it inside. So i haven't yet but will soon. This is also the first version. I will be updating in the future.
