Im planning on building a really small park in my back yard this winter since i cant get out to the mountais too much, and i know that i have 2 build a starting ramp cuz the hill isnt too steep, but do u guys have tips on easy ways 2 build rails, ill probably be using wood, cuz we dont have any pipe. got any suggestions???
Ok, yeah, I'm new, so what? I've got a quick question. I'm a ski racer turned freeskier. When you go up to a rail (PVC lets say) won't the front edge of my skis catch and dig in? Someone explain this quick. Thanks a ton.
only if your doing it wrong. my suggestion which u might not like since your a racer is to get a metal file and file your edges down so there nice and round. that significantly decreces the chances of catching an edge
Being out there skiing every day, good or bad, just playing around with friends, with no contests or filming- that is the real spirit of skiing for me. that is why i started skiing, and if i lose those moments that is what will make me stop skiing.
rough, i love living with a nice big backyard, i have this retaining wall, where you could put up a handrail, it'd be pretty sweet, cause there's a hill up to it, then a flat section. don't have a rail the right length or height though so i've never tried it.

i have a 2 acre backyard, with a pond and a dam so i don't have to worry about speed. this year i wanna make some sorta snowmaking system.... but thats totally not happening. it would be sweet though. FREEZING POINT 32
i made my backyard rail out of a 2x4 thats about 2 feet above the ground and i put a piece of sheet metal over top of it, it works sweet but make sure to fold the edges down on the sides so u dont cut yourself in case you fall.
i think some modells and sports stores sell small rails that are a foot off the ground for around 40 bucks.
_ about going to france- 'i was gonna try to blend in by wearing a shirt with a french flag on it and a beret, while carrying around a bagette. u think that would work?? jk i'd get my ass beat quick.'--pierceme
my friend and i were going to do that but the winters ending in like 16 days i believe so the snows washing away. we have a huge park planned out. if we get alot of snow next winter were going to build a killer one but yea man watch out for the wood shit, just find some bars at like a construction place or something. maybee even buy some piping.
yea wood rails are fine, just mkae the bottom plate of pressure treated... me and a friend have at least 4 wood and PVC rails... when you screw in the PVC in, make the hole on top big enough for the head to fit through, so it sits inside the pipe

I have tarps with dish soap and water leading to my rail. It's 1.5 feet high PVC. It's an up flat down and it's all interchangeable. So I can have, flat, up-flat, up-flat-down, and flat-down. I don't have snow so pretty much everything is hard because I don't have enough speed to get onto it. There is one pic of it in my profile as a flat-down. If you want to know what the entire rail looks like, imagine that the jump isn't there, and that an up part leads to the flat part.
Imagine the ns outcry if u(lateralis) were banned. There would be countless threads and petitions to bring u back, it would be like when treadway got banned from whistler. Someone would probably make and sell 'Free Lateralis' stickers and shit. -jflo453
