Building a drop-in for summer time
Couldn't find anything in the searchbar, just wondering wondering if you guys have any advice for making a good drop - in or dimensions or something
What Would Saucer-Boy Do?
I use turf for the surface it works pretty well. The drop-in ramp is like 5 and half feet tall.

Go to a neighbors house and nick a slide off of their kid's playset, you might need a spanner though
Sir, the possibility of successfully navigating a last run is approximately 3,720 to 1!
Use turf as the 'snow', but cut it into 3 inch strips with 3 inch gaps between them. Less area where skis are in contact with turf = less friction. Also it halves the amount of turf you need, so it's cheaper. You'll still want to put water/soap on it.
Btw when we say soap we mean the kinda stuff you can be in gigantic bags at costco. Cos it's cheap.
England is shit.
the key to any summer setup is white lattice fencing. This stuff slides faster than snow, and you don't even need soap, just water. its really slippery though, so i used white lattice fencing for the drop in part, and turf for the get on. Im telling you dont waste your time on msnow or turf for the drop in, white lattice fencing is all you need
Rain is like that one annoying cousin of snow.
Im making a scene and i like it- CH
instead of lattice if u need speed you can also put like 1/2" pvc tubes horizantal across 3 inches apart but its expensive/time consuming
