How To Build a Ski Hill in Your Backyard
Hey everybody, Micah here. This is my front yard for 20 years in French Village, New Brunswick. As you can see, my niece and nephew are having lots of fun sliding down this great hill. I used to too with my brothers. We built jumps and rocked our GT's pretty much every day in the winter.
Moncton is a little flat (thanks for mowing the yard Nance, looks great!). This is a problem, so we decided to come up with a strategic plan to pretty much build Poley Mountain in our backyard!!
Step 1 - Have a crazy winter
Step 2 - Get someone to plow about 50 snowfalls into the back of your driveway
Step 3 - Hire a tractor to shoot the giant mound of snow over your fence into the backyard
Step 4 - Enjoy!
Drawback - Giant brown thing in the Spring : S
I think the tractor annihilated a kids shovel too : S It blew up and it scattered about our yard...
So there you have it. Pretty neat eh? Best of luck building your own Ski Hill in your backyard!
